Sorry if this is lengthy but any help/input would be much appreciated. Very new to this. Where to begin...
About 8 months ago my husband started having really terrible night sweats, absolutely soaking the bed. This has continued and the whole time he is always having abdominal pains and lower back pains. Quite often has diarreah then says he feels like he is constipated.
Around Christmas time he started urinating blood. Got referred to have a cystoscopy (camera into the bladder) and all was fine. Still urinating blood. Then in January pain got really severe and said he had a kidney stone. Inserted a stent for a few weeks but when he had it taken out stone had gone.
Had a couple of episodes of really severe itching over his stomach area. Weirdly his lower back pain is worse after drinking alcohol, not that he drinks much and that's why it's more noticeable.
Also had a painless swelling on topside of his wrist a few weeks ago but has since gone. No lumps or anything that we have noticed.
Had first appointment with endocrinology on friday where hogkins was mentioned and never really knew anything about it, so now referring him for a host of blood tests, 24 hour urine test and ct scan. He is 39.
So any thoughts/suggestions/information? Thanks so much for reading xx
