You do have your blood pressure treated, have you? Maybe your doc could check your urine once, if it is normal, forget it. Glomerulonephritis usually causes blood stained urine, or is not seen at all. Stressed out? That could cause your blood pressure to rise to! Btw, avoid smoking (if you keep on smoking, treating hypertension won't be effective in avoiding complications like heart attacks, stroke and the like), no more than 2 drinks a day, no more than 4 cups of coffee a day, no liqourice since all these make your blood pressure go up.

and by the way if your pee is dark that would tell me you need more water you are dehydrated a test for that is pinch the back of your hand .your hand must be straight out right above you thumb and on the hand strait down from you pointing finger above you thumb pinch the skin and pull it up and see how long it takes to go back to normal. it should go back to normal very fast if not you are dehydrated
i work in the Florida heat every day and that how I test myself.

I have been suffering with sever joint swelling/pain in several fingers, both thumbs & in both feet at the 2nd toes & thebottom of feet near the little toes & in my achilles tendon & bottom of heels for over a year. This past summer it moved into both knees with the right one being the worst. I have tested positive for scleroderma & lupus since 2010 but my the 2 rheumatologist that I have seen don t think I have scleroderma because they can t see in signs on my skin. The local Rheumatologist thinks I have a connective tissue disorder just desn t know which one? So recommended I go on Plaquinel. In November my family physician tested me & told me I have Psuedo-Gout but the Predinisone and the gout medicine did not get rid of the symptoms. I did finally agree to try plaquenil & started that 2 wks ago. The prednisone does lessen the symptoms alittle,. Last Thursday she told me I have Poly Myalgia Rheumatica. I went in to see her because I am in such severe pain that I can t walk, climb the stairs in our house, use my hands for anything, can t sleep & the pain is literally driving me insane. I have shooting, searing pain in my hands & feet. On thursday she gave me a shot of solu-medrol. It worked by that very evening but within 24 hrs my symptoms were back with a vengence & now my elbows are affected too. I have suffered with severe Fibromyalgia for 30 yrs so I know what it is to live with a chronic pain illness but this is so far beyond Fibromyalgia. I am not sure my doctors really know what I have and are just using the Prednisone& Plaquenil because they hope it will help me but I don t want to use either of these drugs due to the terrible side effects. I am wondering if I should just leave Montana & go to one of the Mayo Clinics? I am the type of person who needs exact & detailed answers. So what ever information you can offer me will be greatly appreciated. I hope I have given you enough info with out dragging on too much. Thank you for your help.

I have been looked at several times. I don t really believe in syndromes because they have no definition just a cluster of symptoms. That being said I have PCOS. My thyroid has been checked but the numbers always come back okay. I have also had my cortisol levels checked. What other diagnosis can present with symptoms found in PCOS, and is it possible for something to be wrong with my thyroid even though my tsh levels are fine as well as my t3 and t4?
