Hi I'm a 42 year old female, I have a lot of medical issues. Like I've had history of thyroid
cancer, spine surgery, depression and anxiety. I am in severe back pain daily, with pain in one leg or other, muscle spasms severe. Bladder problems etc.. I get Norco, Xanax and lyrica from doctor. I took random drug (urine) test just the other day noticed creatatine<--? Level was 269mg/d.l which is HIGH for female right? I of course pass drug test. Contact my doctor to discuss possible kidney problems because of spinal, leg pain, joint pain, edema issues (swelling in face, ankles, feet) she says that level has no connection to serum creatatine and she doesn't think I have any kidney issues. From what I read it does show signs my kidneys may have a problem. Should I get a second opinion? Or am I adding up to nothing?
JA: How long have you been feeling this way? Have you reached out to anyone about this yet?
Customer: I have had back problems for years, but even when I take medication it seems worse. I said I contacted my doctor but her answer is why I'm trying to get a second opinion. Don't want to end up with renal failure after taking advice from just one person.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I have new mass/lesion in breast for year they are retesting watching grow every six months. lyphnodes in my throat and armpits swollen maybe from thyroid cancer.
