Hi,

You want to rule out kidney disease for which following investigations can be done.

_urine routine microscopic examination
_USG scan abdomen and pelvis
_egfr estimation

If all comes normally than it could be a musculoskeletal pain for which analgesic can be prescribed.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Parth Goswami, General & Family Physician

Please advise if these symptoms would cause kidney problems and what they could be? and how soon I should look for exam? I had MRI brain looking for tumor or stroke all negative they were not causing facial swelling. nausea/vomiting, skin rash, unilateral eyelid ptosis, upper lip swelling, dental abscess extracted, difficulty swallowing. HCTZ seemed to increase swelling in my fingers so I discontinued it after two days. lab results have shown low bicarbonate 22, low vitamin d hydrox-25 at a level of 65, high blood pressure, problem with eyes (eye doc suggested cholesterol might be high but has been normal) and I can SEE urinary casts in the toilet bowl moving around (they look like transparent cigar like shape).
