Sorry I haven't posted in here in a long while. I've been really busy with school and such! I hope everyone is feeling well. Sadly, I can't say the same for me.
Monday night I was getting really bad middle back pains. Didn't really think much of it. Come Tuesday morning, it was crippling. I couldn't even get out of bed for a good while. I texted my friend who is a Biology major and i asked him to come over because i knew that he would know what organs and everything are there. He said he had to poke around my back to feel where exactly it hurts, and as soon as he got to my kidneys i jolted away from him. He took me to medexpress to get some bloodwork done. They did a urine test first and came back and told me that they found blood and white blood cells in my urine and that i had to go to the ER right away because they can't do stat blood work at Medexpress.
I went to the ER, where they drew blood, did a CT scan and ran an IV. This hospital however is absolutely horrible and I had to stay there for 5 and a half hours, just to have them tell me they were unsure of the problem and to call my doctor at home (sidenote: i go to school an hour away from home). They discharged me and sent me on my way.
I'm still having back pains. I feel as though more hair than usual is falling out and i have this weird brownish discoloration on my skin on my neck......
Does anyone have any idea if that's a sign of kidney problems?
It's been almost four years since i've ever had any problems with my kidneys and i honestly can't remember everything that happened to me then.
Sorry this is so long, i'm just really frustrated and I need some answers.
Thanks guys, I really appreciate it.
