I have been having much of the same issues and pain. The pain is in my mid to lower back and then goes around to my sides. My abdomen is extremely tender to the touch, much less if the docs press on it. I went to the urgent care clinic yesterday because my GP was out of the office, they ran labwork, urinalysis and a CT scan. Everything came back normal! I am baffled, because I am on oxycontin and norco because I am in so much pain from my lupus on a daily basis and with this I am having major break through pain!
My urine is amber color, has been for almost a month now and I have a hard time urinating. My husband says I sound like a man with prostate problems....LOL! I have a very slow trickle (too much info I know). They thought for sure I had kidney stones or perhaps it was pancretitis, but everything looks fine. I just can't believe it!
I guess something major is going to have to happen for them to find it, which is the norm for me. When I've had pains this massive before they couldn't find anything either, they did exploratory surgery, every test in the book, neucular med tests, the whole gamit and nothing. Then I had a massive bleed and lost half the blood in my body! The ran more tests and couldn't find the source of the bleed, they removed my galbladder thinking maybe it was that and told me it would never happen again. A month later I had just returned from vacation from Las Vegas and again a massive bleed, another blood transfusion and they had to
open me up and go through my intestines. Bingo, they found ulcers in my intestines, removed 9 inches!
I pray to God it's nothing like that again. The pain is different this time, but I know my body, something is definitely wrong. With the amber colored urine, I really scared that it's my kidneys.
