"I went to see my doctor this morning because I have been feeling bad for the past few days. I'm tired, with nausea & vomiting. Well, he examined me and ordered some labs, and then told me that "kidneys are failing," something about a big change in my creatinine and that I needed to come to the emergency department. He told me to bring the test results here with me. [Test results today: creatinine 3.2 mg/dL; 1 month ago Test results 1.1 mg/dL; urine protein = 400 mg microalbuminuria] Do you understand what all that means? I sure don't!" 2) Do you have any other symptoms or concerns we should discuss? I also feel exhausted, probably from all the vomiting and not eating. 3) When did your nausea start? It started three days ago, I woke up feeling nauseous and started throwing up everything I ate. 4) What are the events surrounding this start of your nausea and vomiting? Nothing really happened that I can think of. 5) Do you have difficulty breathing? Uh… no. 6) When do you fatigue start? Just the last few days. 7) Do you have a problem with fatigue/tiredness?

I hurt my back last week, but that's fine now. 15) Have you noticed swelling in any part of your body? No 16) Can you tell me about any current or past medical problems she had? I have high blood pressure. I take medications for that. I was told last month my blood pressure has caused some kidney damage. Something about my protein in my urine. Oh, about a week ago I pulled my back lifting a heavy carton when I was cleaning out my garage. It was pretty painful so I took something for the pain. My back is really pretty good right now, but then this nausea vomiting began. 17) Any previous medical, surgical, or dental procedures? Yes. I had my tonsils out as a kid and then my appendix out about 35 years ago now. 18) What treatments have you had for the pain in your back? Just Naproxen. 19) Are you taking any prescription medications? I take lisinopril, metoprolol, and hydrochlorothiazide for BP. I have not taken anything for the last 24 hours because I feel so sick, can’t keep the pills down. 20) Do you have any pain in your back? Not anymore 21) When you urinate, have you noticed any pain, burning, blood, difficulty starting or stopping, dribbling, incontinence, urgency during day or night, or any changes in frequency?

Yes, I have already told you about my nausea and vomiting. But none of the other stuff. My poop is normal 25) How severe is your nausea and/or vomiting?
