hello everybody. first of all I hope u all had a brill new year and are all well. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
im just after a bit of advise today really. as you may know ive had an lp shunt for 2 years and had none stop problems i.e. high pressure, low pressure, 6th nerve palsy, backpain ect.... I still have the same shunt as my docs refuse to take it out even tho I beg them to all the time. my pressure varies... at low its -4 > 3....... and at high its 19.5 and upwards. I don't get an inbetween so I do struggle as it varies.

my question today is.... does anybody suffer with incontinence??? im only 22 years of age and I hve a very strong pelvic floor muscle as I workout 4-5 times per week. im just soooooo unbelievably embarrassed by this and im not sure what to do. I went to see my gp about 4 weeks ago (before incontinence episodes began) with backache and to my surprise, even with clear urine results he told me I had a kidney infection[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
no fever, chills ect... just backache and some slight confusion.

im also experiencing extreme pain in my left buttock and hip bone, pain down back of left thigh and constant pins and needles in my calf... also on a nd off pins and needles in my left foot and toes. and bending lifting sitting ect makes this worse and it seem to be getting worse as time goes by.

please any help would be very much appreciated as im a t my wits end with this condition and after 47 admissions to hospital and still having the same problems with no help from medical professionals im trying to put off going to te docs as I don't want to be labelled a hypochondriac.

If you were diagnosed with a kidney infection before all these symptoms started, then I would follow up with your doctor. You honestly may just need a stronger antibiotic or kidney function needs to be checked. A lot of different medications affect your kidneys, so check with doctor or pharmacist before even taking something over-the-counter. I hope you're feeling better soon!!
