Re: Forgot about the kidney thing
Well I'm on lithium so I get comprehensive bloodwork twice a year (I'm overdue for a draw -- the pandemic has ####ed up everything to ####). Lithium itself can cause kidney problems, especially if your levels are too high. Not sure exactly when I got the proteinuria but it's always been at the lowest level that's considered to be a problem. But I did run around a lot when I first became aware of it. Did a 24-hour urine collection and everything was okay, but I was still mad worried until a few years had passed and it hadn't gotten any worse.
The heartbeat thing has worried me a bit, and has kept me putting off vigorous exercise on a machine (you hear of elite athletes in their primes suddenly dropping dead from undiagnosed heart conditions) but I do walk my dog quite a bit for quite a while, and of course I walk everywhere that doesn't justify taking the bus.
