I've been seeing a hematologist for slightly low platelets for 2 years now. He cant find anything to explain why and has basically told me he's stumped and suggested I go to a big hospital out of state. Such hospitals specialize in very scary stuff and this sent me into quite a panic. I've always been a worrier and easily stressed but this has been a wild ride for about 2 weeks now. He even told me its not that he thinks something is seriously wrong, he just doesn't know what to make of the results. These two weeks have been miserable; fatigue and inability to make myself get out of bed, general weakness in arms and legs, spells of no appetite, and what bothers me most is pain from my kidney area. I can hit my back in that area and have no sensitivity or pain from it but its a constant cramp or ache. I'm drinking tons of water, urine is clear. I feel more pain pressing inward form my hip bone and when this ache/cramp is present my appetite is gone and I almost feel nauseated. I've never felt this way before, only after the phone call with the doc. Now i cant shake it. I exercise, I eat very healthy, ive taken multi vitamins a few times, nothing helps. I gradually feel better after 5-7pm and by bed time feel almost normal. This kidney pain has me wanting to go to the ER, as does the never ending fatigue/weakness. Anyone have thoughts towards any of this? thanks for reading.
