I'm writing on behalf of my 24 year old boyfriend, who is generally very fit and healthy, never complains, doesn't drink alcohol, eats well and plays sports. He was taken out by severe pain about 6 months ago when in his home country of Zimbabwe, he was found to have kidney stones and treated for them. The pain subsided for a while but then reoccurred when back in England. He has been to the doctors who sent him to a urinary tract specialist. They found he had swollen kidneys and liver, his tubes either side of his abdomen were swollen but they could find no obvious cause. They tested his blood, urine when nothing showed in his results they gave him a general anti-parasite suggesting that it could be a tropical disease from Zimbabwe. He passed out in the hospital after being given the treatment and having his blood tested but then had no further symptoms for a couple of weeks. Now the pain is back, the professionals say they have exhausted all their means of finding out what the problem isOther symptoms are chronic exhaustion, depression and mild nausia. The pain comes and goes suddenly but some of the other symptoms persist. It can sometimes be triggered by sex.
Can anybody help please.
