So I have now been dx with a bladder infection that has tracked to my right kidney. After 6 days I had no relief in the pain in my kidney area. So went back to the hospital. They did a load of tests and ruled out kidneys stones and a heart attack. They found blood in my urine and I still had the infection so they changed my antibiotics. They also found I had high potassium. A week later the pain is worse than ever so I went back to the clinic. Turns out I was dehydrated and high blood pressure. Infection and blood still there but the doctor thinks the pain could be gall bladder. The pain is sharp, starts from front just under rib cage and goes to back just under right shoulder blade then up. I now have a painful rib cage all right sided, it feels like one big bruise. They are ringing the rheumatologist for an urgent appointment tomorrow, they say if it is not gal bladder it is probably my vasculitis. I have unspecified vasculitis, GCA was the initial dx but I have small vessel involvement too.
I am in so much pain and no clue what is going on, hurts to move to much and can't lie flat. Any ideas?
