@meganm0710 – Good start that you got to see a Nephrologist! You should probably start looking for a new GP- you should be able to trust your regular doctor. I’m very interested in what your tests show.

Yeah, I’m curious too! I went back to the hospital 2 nights ago, they found blood in my urine (not alot but still there) but didn’t want to do a cat scan based off of the info I was giving about the pain. When I’m hurting; it hurts regardless of what position I’m in, but certain positions can make it worse. Thankfully they gave me Tramadol and Soma, they gave me Soma because they think it’s related to my muscles… but it doesn’t make sense if there’s blood in my urine. The Soma doesn’t really do anything but make me tired, but the usually the second dose of Tramadol works like a charm.
I did my 24 hour pee test for my Nephrologist… unfortunately, me and my dad got confused and I ended up messing up.. I’m going to do it again Sunday! I’m really interested to learn what’s going on with my kidneys.
Also, when I was at the hospital they said an ultrasound would be necessary because it’s less radiation than a CT (I think, don’t remember what he said.) but didn’t do one… I just don’t understand why they wouldn’t do / say much about the blood in my urine. They were more focused on the “muscular” pain.
