Have eGFR. Pain in lower back, pain while walking, foamy urine. Reason?

I have had an eGFR of 46-48 for a couple years. My MD says it s due to muscle mass and not to be concerned. I m not a body builder, but used to lift weights as a younger athlete and have thick muscles. (I m now 61). For the last 6-8 wks, I have had pain in my lower back/hip area that makes it painful to walk. There was no injury. Could this be related to a kidney problem? I also have foamy urine . What do you thick?

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the lower back is less likely to be related to the kidney problem that you are having. It is more likely to be a muscular pain which can be relieved with hot fomentation, mild pain killers and muscle relaxants.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
