Too complicated . .: Your symptoms may or may not be related.However,since you have CKD at the age of 48 yrs, I would anticipate that you have other medical problems as well.

Exercised Saturday morning, that afternoon lower back pain right in middle lower lumbar and tailbone, pain when move, barely walk, nausea, low fever. Have to crawl at times. pain shoots in legs when moving them at times.

Go to ER: Although one may try ice pack and NSAID for pain, I think there may be something more serious than a simple injury which should not cause any fever or nausea. You need to get to the ER ASAP because this may be something more complicated and may lead to permanent damage if not treated promptly. ...Read more

Are there specific blood tests to identify viruses? Cbc clear but been ill for 2 months. Abdo/low back pain, sore throat, mild fever, inflamed joints

Blood Tests: A viral culture might be drawn to identify a virus in your blood, but many viruses hide within cells, such as the HIV virus. Bacteria are usually more easily identified, but only if the bacteria is actually in the blood. Better identifying factors might be your eosinophils, neutrophils, and your total WBC blood count, but these only show that your body if fighting a problem. See your doctor! ...Read more
