Hello, so today I went for my abdo scan which I think was fine - I say I think because the doctor was bizarre and said some very odd things, but I think in amongst his rambling he ruled out nasties so that's good.
Anyway, he didn't just look at my ovaries, he did bladder, spleen, gallbladder, kidneys, liver etc too and it was all unremarkable apart from the kidney scan. The minute he touched my flank with the probe, I screamed in pain, and flew up the bed to get away from him. It was agony. He didn't seem bothered and carried on regardless while saying it wasn't a normal reaction. When he did the other side it was exactly the same. It was like somebody was stabbing me with a burning hot poker in my kidney area, I've not felt pain like it. And it was only the tiniest bit of pressure that he was applying. I cried and gritted my teeth and he did what he needed to do in his own merry time and that was it. Why would it hurt like that? Does it mean there is something wrong with my kidneys? I'm really paranoid about my kidneys because have twice gone in to renal failure with no explanation, yet the Drs do not routinely check them or anything.
Does anyone know why my kidneys might have hurt, or have had a similar experience? Can't go to Dr as he already thinks I fuss about real illnesses so going about something that might be nothing would really annoy him
