I have kidney failure , heart disease and diabieses and I have a drug habit.I have lost the use of my legs i need help?

First things first: When facing big challenges you can really only focus on one thing at a time, trying to take one step forward. It sounds like the major problem that is in your hands to change is the drug habit. Seeking help and getting clean may open other doors to important health care options. For example, you would only be a kidney transplant candidate after being clean for at least 6-12 months. Best of luck.

Transplant: Heart transplant management is a very specialized area and specific recommendations to a particular patient are necessary. The patient should be followed by the transplant team who knows the details of the specific patient. Making blanket recommendations in a place like this isn't a good idea

Frequent urination only at night, can this be caused by heart failure or kidney disease?

Urinating often: There are several causes for getting up at night to urinate (u). If you are walking around and your ankles are swollen at the end of the day, you have edema. The fluid in your legs gets back into the circulation which is why you u at night. See a cardiologist for a physical examination and have some blood taken to arrive at the answer to your question.

What is the disease for symptoms like cold sweat, difficult in breathing and visual becomes black and white? My dad had kidney failure

These : These symptoms are very broad and could represent many things. Common causes would be low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), panic/anxiety attacks, neurological issues, etc. These are not signs of kidney failure, however more information on your family history should be obtained. You need a complete history, physical, and diagnostic testing in order to figure out what is going on. Best of luck.

I have chronic kidney disease im 22 years old but i feel someone made me to have kidney failure is this possible ? can any one make others kidney fail

Not likely: One cannot make another person's kidneys fail by which-craft. It is possible to give someone chemicals that would damage the kidneys, however, I doubt that was what happened. There are many causes of kidney failure but it would take examination, history, urine and other tests to determine the cause. I hope that you are under the care of a doctor for treatment.
