25 year-old woman
I have chronic abdominal/pelvic pain. I experience dull pain daily and sharper pain at times, it wraps around my low back and extends to my bladder. I do have bladder pain as well.
Over the past 6 months I have had 3 urine tests come back with microscopic hematuria (increasing over time, most recently 25 RBC). Cultures were done all three times, no infection present.
I also had general blood work for kidneys recently:
Sodium 140 mmol/L
Potassium 4.1 mmol/L
Creatinine 76 umol/L
Glomerular Filtration Rate (eGFR) 95
I was misdiagnosed with endometriosis and had laparoscopy in May. Upon surgery, scar tissue and adhesions were removed and so was my appendix, nothing else noted.
I have had kidney ultrasounds and no presence of stones, cysts, or masses. I had an unremarkable cystoscopy ~1 year ago.
Are there kidney conditions that may be confused for gynecological ones? Kidney issues (stones) run in my family, but I've never had one. I've read about nutcracker syndrome and it seems to encompass a lot of my symptoms but I don't know how to be tested for it.
