I was diagnosed with stage 4 ckd..renal insufficiency..my GFR is 22..my creatinine is 2.5..BUN 41..Been to 2 E.R's in 2 days because of fatigue, pain, nausea diarrhea..This was found during a annual checkup..I knew I felt sick for 2 months didn't know why..sent home by E.R because they said nothing can be done until GFR is 20 or below and require dialysis. Trying to get an appointment with a nephrologist but it takes time to get in..
Still under no doctor's care. My family doctor said he can't handle kidney disease..
Any suggestions to feel better till I can get an appointment with a nephrologist..
I can hardly stand up anymore.
My kidney function is still dropping according to the bloodwork drawn both days at e.r..
