Thanks for your post. Lynnwood replied to mine, thanks to her, but no one else replied or chimed in. I really needed to know the info above because I have nutcracker as well. I have been on a diurectic, hctz for years but can't take lisoopril, it nearly killed me. I have 0 ACE anyway, I guessmy body doesnt make it anymore. My docs here are just letting me die. I seem to fall though the cracks in most social situations because I get sick and am gone for long periods. I am bedridden now and can't stay awake during the day. The flank pain is really bad. For nutcracker you can lose one whole kidneyand have normal urine, because the other kidney compensates. it is usually a sign of lupus, cancer, adrenal problems or a birth defect. I keep having sweats and am very naurseas. It hurts to go but I feel better when I do, but for me to go to the toilet is hard, I would rather lay there. My doc did a quicky urine, but those aren't accurate for infection, a culture is better. I've been told that by the time they can actually diagnose kidney disease through blood and urine, its usually really far on. Most docs dont believe women about
the pain. I'm pretty much sure mine are just letting me die. They are doing nothing about
cancer biopsies, any of it. It's sinful and criminal. I don't know how some people live with themselves.
