Hello, I'm new here but have found reading everyone's post very helpful, so thank you.
For two months I have been experiencing transient bladder pain (similar to a uti), and got it into my head that something is wrong with my kidneys. I have been to the urgent care a few times, and have not been diagnosed with any utis. I was referred to a urologist last week who told me my symptoms are most likely kidney stones.
Of course this scared the heck out of me, and sure enough I started experiencing terrible back pain all week--enough to send me to the ER on Sunday. They did a CT scan at the hospital and didn't find any kidney stones.
Now I'm scared that something else is wrong with me, or that they missed the kidney stones in the scan. I'm so afraid all the time and feel guilty for leaning so heavily on my family. I want to feel safe and whole again. I feel so desperate and hopeless that this is just my life now.
Thanks for listening.
