hello, it's my first time posting here as i'm not often bothered this much by my health. thing is about 6 days ago i came home and passed blood in my urine. i passed it through the night and it was black like coke. no exaggeration...like coke. very frightning. anyway the next day i went to an emergancy doctor and gave a sample there which was back to normal colour. the doctor said that my urine had blood and protein present in it and put me on antibiotics the morning after i had the bood i had pains in my left side where my kidney is and generally felt quite sick. it is 6 days on now and i am still feeling sick most of the time. i have headaches and sometimes twinges where my kidneys are or on my right side where my liver is. that could be nothing though. my appetite has gone - i am losing weight already and although i am drinking plenty of water i have that dry hangover mouth a lot. also i am sleeping for most of the day...i have no energy and am feeling quite depressed.

i feel like **** basically.

thing is i'm 23 and i've been an IV heroin and crack user for about 2 1/2 years now, having shared works many times but my last test for hep/hiv etc was all negative i haven't been using drugs for a good month now. i'm on 100mg of methadone currently.

advice, thoughts, comments anyone?

any feedback would be much appreciated.

thanks
dan
