Hi dselin68, I can exactly understand how you are feeling right now. I am also suffering from IgA nephropathy for the past 9 years. I had 36% GFR and now I have 21% GFR. It can be very tiring and stressful thinking about the pain and financial constraints. Don't dwell on it too much. Go about your life as usual and continue seeing doctor. Learn some pain management techniques and speak to people with positive mindset and not to those who pity you and bring you down ultimately. Speak with your nephrologist whenever you have a question and please don't analyse your blood test results too much. I did and it drove me mad. Do some light exercises. A breaking of perspiration does help. I sincerely wish you all the best.View Thread
I was diagnosed with IgA at 35 with 36% function. After 9 years, my GFR is 21%. It had dropped to 14% before but managed to stabilise at 20%. I am feeling tired and sleepy all the time the past one week. Why do I suffer from such so suddenly? My condition is worsening? Is someone in my same situation? What can be done to get rid of this fatigue? I am a divorcee and I need to work to support myself. Can somebody share please?
