Possible nephritis with pluerisy. Should I go to ER?

I had a bout with pluerisy in July and went to the ER. My blood tests came back a tiny bit elevated for anion gap and a tiny bit low for Albumin/globulin (sp) which I read to both point to kidney failure or nephritis.

They sent me home and said just to follow up with dr.

Last week, rhuemy decided to start plaquenil. 3 days ago, I got another flare...every single joint is throbbing and I feel the pluerisy coming back. My urine isnt dark, but has white things in it.   I lleft a MSG for my dr Friday, but she never called back.

, I am very lightheaded and thinking about going to ER again, but I hate to waste my time and $...plus the fact that my husband thinks I'm a hypochondriac wanting attention.

But I'm a little curious to see if the blood tests will be different.

Don't know what to do
