hello, i have had border line creatine levels 119 and gfr function 54 for last six months.
(these are average readings from 4 tests).
I am a 43 year old male. If I had been feeling healthy i wouldn't be concerned
However for the last 6 months I have also had the following symptoms
extreme muscle stiffness and pain(in fingers , toes, lower back,neck, left groin and even my tongue?!)
i have eye muscle problem( where one eye doesnt follow the other when I look down and to the right)
(makes computer use and proloned reading difficult)
pronounced unexplained fatigue sometimes unable to complete even
a round of golf
constantly feeling cold, sensitivity with lower body temp 36.4 average
these symptoms all apeared 6 months ago after I had a bad sore throat (strept throat was negative )
told it was just a virus
( im an elementary teacher so virus infections are common)
symptoms are so severe I have had to take time off work for 5 months (first time off work ever)
i have never had these symptoms before and things were so bad I went to emergency
all my tests are in normal range
thyroid (i believe 1.48) blood pressure excellent 125/73
no diabities, no inflamation (arthritis tests negative)
heart value surgery 1970 (bicusp valve)
checked every year i have mild/moderate stenois eventual value replacement but currently and since surgery asymptomatic
2006 suffered bowel infection from mexico yersina bacteria/blastos hommus parasite
took flagyl twice and cypro once stool negative for yersina since july 2007 still positive for blastos homis
diagnoised with post infection iBS
nothing I do reduces muslce stiffness I have tried massage, advil, warm baths moderate exersice
i can walk on a flat surface for 30 minutes but if i have to do any repeatable or strenuousmuscle exersice i.e
uphill walking or golfing i have significant muscle fatigue and inability to do it
?? can my kidney function results be causing my muscle stiffness /fatigue
should i be concerned about CKD? with these results?
Are there any other conditions tests I should have?
My doctor says these results are normal come back in a year?
and my stiffness is because I'm out of shape????
i used to swim play golf 4 times a week and
i have tried to walk briskly for 7 weeks 30 minutes a day in pain with no improvement
i know its not in my head, but i don t want to appear as a hyper condriact ...
but the last time i tried to play golf a 85 year old man with a pace maker could finish and i couldn't?
I have had very similar symptoms to what you are experiencing and I think it is due to the low filtration rate of kidneys. Have you gained a lot of weight that you feel is fluid retention?
Hope you feel better and find solutions soon!
