Hi reading up on sjogrens i have read it can effect the kidneys and other organs like the lungs?? i have fibro and am being dx for other autoimmune disorders or neuro based disorders and i have had kidney pain with my fibro though i have had kidney infections in the past.
sorry i cant help more.
what did the hospital say when you went in did they not have any idea?
I have SS and Lupus, and I get really bad flank and kidney pain. Have you ever had a CT of your abdomin and kidneys? Maybe there is more going on. They found masses in my kidneys, but only after a CT scan. It didn't show up on regular xrays. If you haven't I would push for one.
I have Sjogren's Syndrome, hypothyroidism and undifferentiated connective tissue disease. I haven't really had any kidney issues until the last 3-4 days. Now my right kidney has been hurting. It isn't a severe pain, more of a nagging ache, but sometimes it makes me a little nauseous. I don't know which, if any, of my diseases is causing it, but I am NOT having fun.
I too have a lot of kidney pain...and it's in the right kidney too. Sometimes w/ nausea. I was beginning to think it was all in my head. Don't know exactly what is going on w/ all this pain.Been hurting for years. I guess if it were something to get excited about it would've killed me by now.
