Hi! I’m 25/ female and I have a few doctors right now putting their heads together to figure out what’s going on with my body. I have a few more tests to take and waiting on some results. Summary: I’m having protein and blood show up in my urine (with the dipstick test) at every dr appt. sometimes ketones too although I’m not diabetic/doing “Keto”/OR starving.... I was told from a recent blood draw that my bun/creatinine ratio was elevated. Kidney ultrasound came back normal. They’re send me for 24 hr urine and more labs. I have chest pain, blood pressure spikes (normally low-ish blood pressure), puffy face/abdomen, short of breath, frequent urination at night, severe dry eye, freezing hands and feet, muscle twitching and pain, major fatigue, and headaches every day. They keep checking me for lupus it comes back neg every time.
Anyway getting to my question, now I’m noticing this pattern where if I have chicken, peanut butter, salty food, or protein shakes I have PAIN in my kidneys. It is almost immediate after I eat the food. I recognize the pain since I have had issues with kidney infections and stones in the past (I have been told now that I’m not showing any signs of stones or infection). So my question is, does anyone else with kidney difficulties feel actual pain with certain foods or beverages?
Thank you for reading and sharing experiences!
