I was having chronic kidney problems adn that is how I was diagnosed. Since then it has affected my lungs, heart and GI tract. My joints are also a real pain for me because I also have RA. By looking at me you would never know how this is all affectingme - but boy oh boy my insides tell a different story. Overall I live a very full life - I have had to learn to make adjustments overtime. Hang in there - Like Bill said - some of us have a lot of problems and others of us seem to have none - but DO ALWAYS pay atention to your body.
Live Well, Love Much, Laugh Often & Be Happy...
