Gfr level 58. Fatigue, muscle pain, headache, flank pain. Is this really serious or can my GFR go back up? Also ankle swelling. I don't have a pcp yet.

What would cause testicular pain,lower back pain and leg pain? Dr doesnt seem concerned. Says it's an impinged nerve. Xray showed low spine compressed

Iliohypogastric n?: Something may be irritating the ilioinguinal, iliohypogastric, or genitofemoral nerve (an MD exam will tell).
