Cant explain my frustrations ... I'm 29 years old and I thought I was healthy !!!! 6 weeks ago I had a sudden onset of left foot pain - it was pain in the top of my foot - i truly thought I had a fracture and asked my doctor to order an x-ray : which was negative . Assuming it was just a pulled tendon or ligament - i went on with regular activity .In the meantime I developed a kidney infection ( I get these often ) - i started having pretty sever back pain on the right side which I attributed to the kidney infection /uti . And then as if I wasn't already frustrated enough - my feet and ankles started having horrible edema after spending time on my feet ( I work 10 hr shifts on my feet ) - i was on antibiotics for the kidney infec - and my urine was clearing up - however my back pain was not and I woke up 2 Sundays ago with horrible back pain - and went to the ER - they did a kidney ultrasound and more blood work - all within normal limits. My doctor ordered ultrasound on legs which was normal - However my foot pain only has gotten more intense - now with numbness and tingling in my toes - primarily on the left side. - edema in left calf ankle and foot has gotten progressively worse as well . With sudden onset of spider veins showing in the the ankle as well. The pain in my spine had gotten worse - my doctor ordered xray of my spine which showed mild degenerative changes (per nurse call today ) however my doctor hasn't actually reviewed the film yet. Today I noticed urinary changes again and dipped my urine ( + bili + ketones + nitrites + leuko high SG - and lrg amount of protein) of course my L ankle is so swollen and my pain in the spine
is no better - i have numerous bruises on my legs with no explanation as to why - and I forgot to mention I have had decreased urine output for at least a month or more - urinating only twice a day most days . My doctor had prescribed me Norco for pain which doesn't even touch it anymore - xanax which just knocks me out - neurontin - elavil for sleeping.
ugh I'm 29 !! And 2 months ago you couldn't beg me to lay on the couch and watch a movie ! Now I come home from.work and have no choice -
