I am just wondering how people on here found out they had to start Dialysis?
What happened to me was that suddenly one day I became ill and my kidneys just stopped working...all of a sudden just like that.
I was very healthy before, ate no artifical foods at all and was a gymnast before and extremely health conscious.
I did not have a family history of kidney problems and had no health issues ever at all.
I know because I'd go to the doctors just to make sure I was fine even when I had a cold.
I even had a serious knee injury and took no painkillers for it-just oced my knee instead every day for a few hours.
So, I am wondering why this happened to me?
8 years later all I have seen on my medical chart is "cause unknown".
even when I went to the hospital emergency, they did not beleive I was sick and sent me home 3 times that week and I almost ended up dying!
Finally I was admitted and put on emergency dialisys.
Has anyone else had any experiences similar to this?
The unit I go to is quite unfriendly and people never talk to each other there.
