Health problems


Well I have been having some health issues that I’m not sure is related to chiari or I’m just that unlucky. With it being summer time I couldn’t imagine being sick. First it was strep throat then into bronchitis! Bad swelling in my legs and feet which sent me to the ER. They did blood work and my white blood cell count is really low and my kidneys are not working properly. I went to my family doctor had more blood work but haven’t heard back on it yet. The ER doctor told me that I’m not in renal failure but she’s not sure how bad it is. Im kinda scared because I have know I have kidney disease for about three years. So now it’s a waiting game on blood work to come back and for my next appointment. Has anyone else had kidney problems or problems with white blood cell counts being low with chiari?
