First off, I KNOW I need to get into the doctor. I had an appointment last week and forgot about it.
I went to the ER twice about a month ago for severe abdominal pain...felt exatly like kidney stones. They did a ct, u/s (found 3 ovarian cysts) and tons of blood work and couldn't find the source of my pain.
I did some research and it appears I may have kidney disease. I've had symptoms for a while now. Frequent urination, flank pain, joint pain, tired, bones breaking easily, confusion and forgetfulness(been really bad this past month) metalic/funky taste in my mouth and things just don't taste the same lately. The one thing I havn't had is blood in my urine, although I have had that in the past.
Do you or anyone you know suffer from kidney disease? What made you go in? I'd like to have all the info I need when I go so the doctor will take me seriously. I've had issues with doctors who just don't listen to what you have to say and I'd like to avoid that.
