I recently discussed my concerns regarding the possibility of a kidney problem as a result of the ongoing pains I’ve experienced over years/months. Aches in both sides of my pelvis and both sides of my mid to upper back. Well to cut a LONG story short, after seeing a Urogynaecologist today (29/01/13), he more or less stated in no uncertain terms that I did not have a kidney problem in the slightest... he based this on 2 ultrasounds I've had done in the past which came back normal. He more or less blatantly refused to do anything for me, but I managed to get him to order a kidney function blood test. I also have 125+ Leukocytes in my urine as of today, which again the Urogynaecologist doesn't seem to think is anything (despite overcoming a kidney infection in December 2012) but yet again I somehow managed to convince him to send it off for a urine culture. Honestly it was like getting blood out of a stone. Actually that would be a lot easier!
My concern is in reference to the bilateral upper (thoracic) back pain / shoulder and arm pain I’m currently experiencing on a daily basis. I cannot lie on my left side whatsoever and only temporarily on the right. It feels like a constant heavy dull ache in all areas, and sometimes the pain can just hit me like a shockwave in the mid to upper back (again both sides).
For this reason after pretty much cancelling out the possibility of a kidney problem based on an ultrasound (because obviously there the be all and end all) do you think it could well be a problem with my spine or something? Maybe I should go back to my GP (again) and somehow convince him to refer me to a back specialist... Please somebody help!
