    Hi everyone! Over the course of a few years I've developed a severe skin disorder that produced sites then loss of melanin when they healed, episodes of severe legs edema, milky urine and one sided back pain that radiates to the front into my groin area. I've also been ill off and on with fever, chills, vomiting and profuse sweating and all.my tests come back normal. I'm at the end of my rope! What's going on??? Thank you!

    I assume you've seen your doctor about this? Have you had any referrals yet?
    Something that affects your body in so many different ways with tests coming back fine makes me thing of something like autoimmune, but obviously I'm in no position to make assumptions of what this is and could be totally wrong.

    I would write down all of your symptoms and go see your GP to discuss them. You might like to have a google of "this and this" "this with that condition" etc beforehand, but don't worry about anything it comes up with, just see if it might help give some direction. It could be totally wrong, but it might help decide what referral you should get.
    I expect starting with a urologist and dermatologist would probably be a good idea.
    Again though, I'm just some random person. Your GP is the right person to be talking to and asking.

    I know you've hit a lot of walls and unfortunately I expect you'll hit a lot more, but you need to keep pushing and keep going back to your GP until things get worked out. You can also try seeing different GPs at your surgery or even at another surgery to see if they have any better ideas.
    And, although I tend to advise against getting yourself scared by stuff online, I think it might be worth you looking into some things yourself. Just remember that a lot of it is worst case scenarios, exaggerated or just won't be right. Use it to help you with direction, but don't let it scare you and don't take it as fact without running it past a doc.

    Hope that helps at least a little.

    What tests have you had done already?

    Are you keeping a diary? Just wondering if there's a pattern with the things like vomiting and fever.
