The tests you mention, unless I am reading the terminology wrong are more blood count verses kidney. Kidney is creatinine, urea, potassium, phosporous, calcium and protein in the urine and/or blood. They also can calculate from these different tests a GFR which is commonly used when describing stages of kidney disease.
You would probably need some pain in the kidney quandrant. In the back off to one side, above your hips and below your ribs.
Fatigue, high blood pressure, swelling of the limbs, itching are tell tale signs of kidney disease once it hits stage 4. Kidney disease has few to no symptoms in the earlier stages. That is what makes it so deadly. You don't usually know you have it until your kidneys have almost failed.
Sorry but I don't think kidney disease explains your symptoms, except for perhaps the urinary bleeding and fatigue. If you are worried it is easy enough to get a blood test for that.
Sometimes it is a combination of a few things when you start getting weird symptoms. I have Fibormyalgia, bipolar disorder, and now chronic kidney disease. I question the fibromyalgia diagnosis as I feel they just slapped that one because they couldn't figure out anything else. I don't have the tender points I am supposed to have for FMS. I am sorry you are having the problems you are. Have you seen an endocrinologist? rheumatologist? I think those specialties may provide you with better answers. If you've seen those specialists and got nothing you may want to go for genetic testing. I was signed up to go but then moved and where I live it isn't offered. I hope you find the answers you seek.
