Nasty surprise

Last updated: March 2023

2 weeks ago, I landed in the ER and was there for 6 hours having test after test, 1 diagnosis was that I was dehydrated. Then I find my kidneys aren’t performing well. A time-sensitive blood test was done and it confirmed my kidneys aren’t doing well. I see my family doctor at the end of the month. The ER doctor was kind and concerned, but having to wait a month more or less is quite unnerving.

Noticing out of the ordinary symptoms

I’ve noticed my urine is kind of a lime green color and it seems almost fizzy. I find myself unusually worried. I’m a 65-year-old female with high blood pressure, take .05 Synthroid, have occipital neuralgia, and am obese.
