Question: So today I am pissing like a race horse....every hour almost on the hour. I almost didn't make it to the bathroom today during org chem. So, today I get home and decide to do a urine dipstick test on me. What the hell why not? I am on my dose down part of my steroid
pack that my physician gave me thought maybe it might be wreaking havoc on my adrenal glands--Now, I'm not crazy--probable assumption. Well Not happy with the test results-- The question should be what was not positive. Positive for : LEU: 70+ ; URO: off the chart my color is brown; PRO: 15(0.15); SG: 1.030; KET: 5(0.5); BIL: 1(17); Negative GLU. pH is within normal range. He put me on methylpresidone. I ran two set of tests, anyone got any idea as to what might be causing this? I also have several other factors that are now of concern of mine. #1 I do not have a gallbladder
. #2 I have have positive ANA tests for two years now, I cant seen to get a typology out of my PC. I have also had positive inflammation markers. I am only 37 I have had almost every joint I have either partially replaced , fused, or reconstructed.
I have had constant elevated C-reactive proteins--since 2009, +ANA for 2+years, extremely low Vitamin D (8), This week blood levels now low B-12, My thyroid
levels keep going down. I am on 150,000 Iu of D and my levels will only go to 35. I am starting to wonder if I do not have a connective tissue
disease, I have had a spinal fusion
( C5, 6, 7) Shoulder reconstruction, ankle reconstruction, partial knee replacement--and in less than 3 years are telling me I need another one. I am usually in sever pain most of the time from my "bones" not just my joints. Lately I have had URQ pain and every time I eat something..like two bites I feel so full, like I have over eaten--I end up getting the hiccups, wondering if there is pressure being put on my diaphragm some where. So today the urination thing started, I almost wet myself trying to get to the bathroom. Came home and decided to do the dipstick urine test. And what the results are is posted above. I am over my PC not knowing what is wrong with me ... I feel like I need to be sent to some specialists.
