I feel better now, too, knowing what to expect. I spilled protein and catecholamines before I was diagnosed, and refused a kidney biopsy then because the levels went to normal. I did agree I would have a spinal tap and kidney biopsy the next time I got sick enough to go to the hospital. Last summer I had a scary episode of really, really, foamy bubbling urine, over the course of about a week. I kept delaying calling the dr. because it went away, and I could live with denial. The past 6 wks, every few days, I notice it first thing in the morning. I am going for my rheumy check up in two weeks and I will tell him, but has anyone had any experience like this? Like so many of my symptoms, for so many years, I tried to pretend they were all in my imagination and that I was just tired....
