I need to know

Posts: 543

My kidneys hurt allot and I need to know if this is normal. I have not read that anyone complains about this, but I have read that Fibro can cause false UTI pain and maybe that could be what I'm experiencing?

I was taking Metformin for my poly cystic ovarion syndrome and stopped taking it thinking that the medicine was causing this, but I have been off of it now for almost a month, so I know it's not that. I don't have a kidney infection because I had the NP test me for one a few weeks ago, but she of course did nothing in finding out why I was having this pain.

Is this normal?

My personal experience with Kidney problems is extensive. So I am always ready to jump and see the doc for kidney problems. I had kidney pain for years before I found out that I had a tumor and had to have my kidney removed. I am in no way saying this is your problem. I just personally dont take kidney problems lightly

I DON'T REMEMBER HEARING A LOT ABOUT KIDNEY PROBLEMS WITH FIBRO. I think I would look into it a little more!

I've not heard anything about kidney problems with fibro and I've had it for 20 years. Definitely make your dr look into that.
