Hi all. Completely new here and only recently visited consultant at nephrology.
9 months ago I was experiencing severe full body muscle cramps and swelling of hands and feet so went to doctor. After various blood tests just got told my kidneys were working but not quite right. Months went by with regular blood and urine tests with just the same thing being said 'your kidneys are working but not quite right'
After seeing consultant I found out my GFR was 53 in September and has been on a downward trend down to 31 at last blood/urine test.
My consultant is really good at first view and put my mind at rest. I'm awaiting an appointment for a kidney biopsy so they can tell the extent of damage and then work on treatment plans. I've had an ultrasound and structurally my kidneys are fine.
More recently I'm finding the fatigue is taking over my life, the nausea and vomiting is becoming more frequent and now my urine is consistently foamy. Getting concerned about everything tbh, will be seeing my gp this week to discuss Things with him.
I'm a 32yr old male, in relatively good health, no diabetes, blood pressure is normal too.
