kidney disease??

I do have a fake front tooth that they like drilled up into my gums and put it in there by like a wire or something like that, that was done like 12 years ago.I'm a 25 year old otherwise healthy male, here the past 4 days I've noticed that I've been having a very strange taste in my mouth that will not go away no matter how often I brush my teeth. My appetite is horrible, I force myself to eat once a day, I've lost about 7 pounds. My right side and lower back has been kind of bothering me but not that much, my blood pressure also has been fluctuating alot, my face and ears will get REALLY red and hot and i've had BP readings of 180/115, and it will go back to normal within an hour to like 140/88, and then down to 120/77. I went to the Dr. and did blood work and urinalysis. Everything came back normal besides slightly elevated serum albumin was 5.4 G/DL, and serum calcium 11.0 MG/DL. My urine output seems like it decreasead alot also, and I can't hardly taste my food that I force myself to eat. I have a history of some irregular heartbeats, PVC's, and NSVT. the non sustained ventricular tachycardia was caught and it was a 26 beat run. I've had almost every heart test possible besides and EP study, and angiogram. All other tests have showed I have a normal heart. I've been feeling tightness in my chest and more weird heartbeats since this started about 4 days ago with the strange taste and fluctating BP. What could be causing all this? My lips are really dry now also. I also do drink beer everyday, average 7-8 and sometimes around 12 or more, when this started I have been notcing that the beer taste really weird also. I wasnt have as severe as the symptoms when I had the blood drawn as I am now, the blood test was 2 days ago, and my BUN is normal but the didn't test for my creatinine levels.  Could my BUN have been normal and still have kidney disease or failure, and also no protein was found in my urine, soo......????
