I'm having a night time panic, and wondering if I should try to get an urgent doctor's appointment in the morning, or if it would be better to go straight to the hospital first thing!
Background: I was diagnosed with lupus nephritis in the early summer, for which I've been on MPA. Recent blood tests were okay.
This evening I've been needing to pee a lot (but no pain or anything), as in, every half an hour or so. And the last time I was in the bathroom I noticed that my urine was really foamy and red - like, really red! So now I'm having a huge panic that the kidney problems have flared up again.
But I'm feeling absolutely fine - no fatigue, no swelling of feet and legs, not unwell at all. So perhaps it could be a UTI ot something I ate or drank?
I am worried about wasting people's time if I rush for an appointment and it turns out to be nothing... but also worried that it might be something wrong.
I'm honestly just praying that it isn't another flare. I so wanted to be getting over this!
