Hi no doctor has ever told me that I have ckd but alot of health problems I've experienced in my life seem to be symptoms relating to kidney damage. when I was about 20 in 1984 I had chest pains and when I urinated it was painful and the urine was cloudy white I went to the doctors and had a urine test and they found albumin in it. My doctor said I had kidney damage he said if your lucky you will lead a normal life with it or it could get worse but most people manage to live normal lives with it.
Well turned out I was lucky the chest pains disapeared and I was able to urinate without pain, once in a blue moon my urine would be cloudy with albumin but that was my only symptom and this is still happening. In 2006 I had a very bad pain in my right arm It was so painfull I could hardly move it, I went to the hospital the nurse put my arm in a sling gave me a painkiller and said it was a muscle spasm. Also I lost my sex drive around september 2010 and have trouble getting and maintaining an errection and problems with climaxing wich I heard are other symptom's of kidney damage.
Since then I've had muscle spasms in the whole of my right arm once after finishing a 20 minute phone conversation I found I couldn't lower my arm without feeling pain and also in my lower right arm. Now while out walking after about 2-10 minutes or just standing for a long time I start feeling low to mild pain in my right hip, but sitting down gives temporary relief. I also go more often than usual to the toilet to urinate I even get up during the night to urinate, my doctor does not yet know about my hip pain or my urinating problems.thanks
