Hi, wondering if anyone can help....

For about the past five months my urine output has been unusually excessive, which started a few days after i started taking a protein supplement, which i stopped when symptoms came. But the symptoms continue to be brought on by eating protein rich foods, and taking multivitamins.

Other symptoms include darkness around eyes, fatigue and a sickness feeling.

I've had various tests including Kidney, Liver, Glucose and a 24hr Urine in which i filled to 3 liters and to which my Doctor said were all normal.

I'm currently experiencing problems with my eyes, (slight blured vision and redness, that without a doubt get worse the more protein i eat. When I ease off the protein/vitamins, the swelling/redness eases.

I also have Sickle cell disease, something that effects the red cells' ability to transport oxygen around the body efficiently, possibly leaving certain organs that bit more vuneralble. Though i did wet the bet untill my mid teens and have always urinted more frequently than others (possible reduced renal?) i have had no 'major' problems.

This is very frustrating as i know there's a problem, yet all tests come back clear with the doctors telling me not to worry.

Is there anything else someone can suggest? Could i have early stage renal failure?

Side note:
I've had no allergies (tested) and no infections, but i've been itching head to toe for 5 years, with no reason ever found.

Any ideas appreciated.
