In brief: See below

The most common symptoms of nephritis will typically be elevated blood pressure with values sometimes extremely elevated, increased swelling of the feet and legs from fluid retention which then will result in weight gain.
Shortness of breath can occur if fluid builds up in the lungs. Obviously labs will be abnormal including kidney function abnormalities and abnormal urine tests.
