See Dr ASAP!: With those serious conditions and this extreme new symptom, it is very important that you see your doctor ASAP. Of course there's a chance of something involving kidney function, but the important thing is finding a corrective therapy. Don't wait - ask for an urgent appointment or go to urgent care or an ER. Systemic toxins are not good. Nip it in the bud.
