I have been feeling generally rough and very tired lately and I have been back and forth to my GP with fatigue and achy muscles for a number of years. I've lost count the number of times my GP has tried to prescribe me ant-depressants. Two years ago I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid and take medication daily.
I visited my GP last week because I am very tired all of the time I even wake up tired. I went out on Saturday night and needed a nap before going and lost half a day sleeping on Sunday (without alcohol).
I've been having annual blood test for a few years now because the nurse said my kidneys are not functioning as well as they should but she said it was nothing to worry about as many people live a healthy life with only one kidney so I haven't given it a second thought. I asked my GP what my results were first year my GFR was 62, second year was 53 and this year it is 52. He asked me if knew I had CKD which I didn't.
I feel like someone has taken my battery out, I try and psych myself up and fool myself that I have energy but I just end up making myself more exhausted.
It seems to be going down hill since I hit 40 3 years ago and I thought life would begin. I'm going to keep going back to my GP until I find out what is wrong with me.
Has anybody had GFR similar to mine for a long time and been fine?
What are the symptoms if any for GFR 52 has anyone experienced?
Thank you in advance
