Hi! I'm still very new here! i have Hashimotos and saw an endocrinologist for first time in Jan 16. He tested my PTH and calcium, VIt D etc and i was found to have slightly elevated PTH with low Vit D so he declared me to have hyperparaythoidism.
Anyway, fast forward to recent months. I have visited my GP on several occasions complaining of left flank and low groin pain. Each time i have been told it can't be kidney stones as there is no blood in your urine. I have endometriosis so they said it was probably a flare up of that.
Anyway the pains have worsened and i have started needing time off work so the last time I vlsited I pleaded for a scan. This GP was very good (believing it to be something to do with my ovaries) so arranged a scan. I got one within a week and the USS took place on Monday (2 days ago). at my local hospital.
My GP rang last night to chat about scan results. She said scan was normal but went on to query why I had an abdominal CT scan in Nov '13, I told her i was admitted to A&E after i was knocked off my bicycle by a car and it was routine. She went on to tell me that the CT scan then showed several stones in my left kidney!!!! Nobody told me!!!!!! i have had stones in my left kidney for at least 3.5 years that we're aware of!!!!
Even when talking to the endocrine consultant he told me i can't possibly have kidney stones because my calcium and phosphorus are normal and you don't get kidney stones just because your vit D is low!
Anyway my GP has arranged the blue dye contrast xray so i should get that soon and I have emailed my endocrine consultant to alert him to the CT scan results of 2013. I was admitted to a different A&E with a blocked kidney in 2009 and I don't think those results ever turned up in any medical records at all! (I have seen a lot of my records since I issued a claim against the driver in my bike accident).
Oooh, i feel better for this! Does anyone have similar experiences they can share?
