In all my travels across the ME/CFS web world, there's one symptom I never read about...and it happens to be my 2nd or 3rd biggest symptom: kidney area pain. It makes me wonder if this is a clue to my specific ME etiology. "Pain" really isn't an accurate description. It's more like a feeling of swelling or discomfort, and it's a barometer for my fatigue in general. When it flares up, so does my fatigue. I have no idea if it's actually my kidneys, but it's just below the rib cage, on both sides, toward the back. I suppose it could be the liver, as I believe part of the liver extends to the left side. I've had standard tests of liver and kidney function, and both were normal (other than high bilirubin). A recent blood test showed that I have reactivated mycoplasma infection. I've read that mycoplasma can attack different organs. Does anybody have any insight into this? Has anyone else experienced this? I don't like having one symptoms that nobody else has.
