Opugirl - thanks for response.
The only kidney support I use is a cranberry pill and ginger tea. Doctors haven't told me anything to do, specifically, except to lower protein intake. They still don't know what is happening.
I have had frequent urination and thirst several times over the years with Lyme. But the one test came back with protein in urine. Have been tested several times since and it has not shown up again. It's such a slow process, but the doctors don't understand the Lyme (or maybe believe). By going so slow, it takes away from treating the Lyme and eating enough to keep weight on.
The GFR number went very low to 44 on the one test more than a month ago, but that was when I was eating a LOT of protein and had eaten a good amount two hours before test. Think that effected results as creatinine was also very high. Have also had itching on back before, like I do now.
Just have never had dizziness like this. Can things get worse on a relapse? At least when considering just Lyme and co-infections, the confusion and anxiety wasn't as bad.
Finally, kidneys do not cause the morning anxiety, I feel, is happening because of adrenals, even though my tests came back normal for that. But, they did not test T3, which is always low.
I'm sorry for appearing obsessive, but just thrown by it all.
