I haven't been on here in awhile because I was sure I got my anxiety under control. Just a few months ago I was obsessing over having breast cancer, and diabetes.
I had my blood checked with my doctor and everything came back fine. A few weeks later I decided to get a life insurance policy... And I had to get my blood work and urine checked in order to get covered for the policy. Everything came back normal except my creatinine levels. They were slightly above the average range. I immediately emailed my doctor... Her response was that she wasn't worried because I just had the same test done in her office and everything came back fine, and that I should avoide Motrin and all other NSAIDS. So that made me feel better... Kind of. Why would I have to avoid NSAIDs if everything was fine?
Last week I started scratching my thigh.. It was really bothering me. I went to the bathroom to check it out and there were a bunch of red bruise like spots.. It was as if a blood vessel popped under my skin. Of course I googled to see if it was related to my creatinine. I read that itching can be a sign of kidney failure. And now here I am, itching my whole body non stop.. And freaked out my kidney is failing.
I don't know if its in my head. Most likely it is, since I was so sure I had breast cancer recently too.
Anyone have experience with higher levels of creatinine? Any advice would be appreciated.
