Shortness of breath

I am hopeing someone can help. I have breathing difficulties breathing when I do most activites and my muscles hurt badly. The last time I saw my kidney doctor he said it wasn't my ckd (gfr 22) he said there was something else going on. Today I saw lung specialist and predictably I have to go down the ct scan route. He did say that as I was going on a plane befooore I saw him again he told me to make sure there was oxygen on board. Does anyone else have these problem?

  • hi kirstie I have exactly the same problem. I only have one working kidney I'm stage 4. My gp and kidney doc tell me that my symptoms have nothing to do with kidney disease, I become very distressed about it, I go to gp every 6 weeks and kidney doc every 3 months and still they say my symptoms are nothing to do with ckd. I know this doesn't help you but maybe knowing there are others out here having the same probs may help
