Hello, Sorry to hear about the pain. But as far as I know IgA nephropathy will not cause any pain . Did your Doctor tell what is causing the pain ?

Hello, Im so sorry about what you are going through and im sorry but i dont know anything regarding a vegotomy but i was wondering if i could speak to you about something regarding my own health? I am 21 years old and found out yesterday that i might have iga nephropathy, but my doctor isnt sure yet, i have severe high blood pressure and protein in my urine, low vitamin d and last year i had low potassium. My doctors are stumped as to why i am getting so sick so fast for no apparent reason so i was wondering if when you had iga nephropathy if you had any of these symptoms?
