Feeling so Overwhelmed

I have always been healthy and all of a sudden I'm facing several medical diagnoses. I am 22 and in college and started experiencing severe swelling of my ankles and calves along with discoloration, numbness/tingling, bruising and severe pain. I ended up in the ER a few days ago and was admitted after being diagnosed with a DVT in my left leg and severe, rapidly progressing acute Glomerulonephritis and Lupus (which has caused the DVT and the kidney disease), along with a more minor issue that contributed to my severe pain (Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome). I now have an Ortho, a Nephrologist, a Vascular Doc, and a Rheumy. I went from only having a GP to having four specialists and now face a lifetime of illness, meds, and pain.

I was admitted but hope to be home within the next few days, once they can stabilize my high blood pressure and relatively restore my failing/poor kidney function.

Anyone have any of these issues, especially at a young age?

I haven't had those per say, but others, but a bit older. It isn't fun, but we learn to adjust, and take day by day...

So sorry, you are going through all this. I was VERY glad to read that you went to the ER. My father and sister have had multiple clots and to suffer from it, and always will. I had the test and was ruled out..

Please let us know how you are doing...

Thank you for your words of support. It is definitely an adjustment period I'm going through, adding a whole load of meds that I will be on for a lifetime, and a hospital stay which I've never dealt with before in my 22 years!
