In the last few days, I started having flank aches, and upper back pains. I still urinate a lot at night, and the fatigue is ongoing. I have now noticed that over the course of a day or two, my weight can vary by as much as four pounds, which might not seem like much, however, my feet and hands appear slightly swollen, and certainly feel that way.
I had my last CBC 7 test in late May, and everything was normal. It should be noted that I have also started Synthroid, due to hypothyroidism, so much of my fatigue might be on account of my thyroid disfunction.
Still, I feel the frequent urge to urinate, my backaches have increased, and I have started swelling, abeit ever so slightly. I have also started having a funny taste in my mouth, at times kind of metallic, but no bad breath accompanies this. In-home urine dipstick testing does not seem to come up positive for either blood, glucose or protein, and my blood pressure, thus far, is very good (well below 120/80).
