    Particularly if you have a history of kidney problems (which I seem to recall you do), doctor, now.

    Bingo. With the OP's history of health problems, a physician's input is needed, not a bunch of people on the Internet.

    *Especially* when NSAIDs are known to have issues with kidney function, and can lead to water retention. I can't fathom being on dozens of NSAIDs...

    Thank you! Yeah I was confused because I’m on Multiple NSAIDS and I feel like I’m taking way too many and overdosing on NSAIDS but my doctors all inform me that is fine.

    I am not a doctor. That said, are you able to get a second opinion regarding the amount, and the causes behind needing that amount?

    Long story kept short - my dad's doctor had him on many prescriptions, something like 25 or so weekly. Continuing issues led to him being hospitalized at a facility known for it's excellent care and the doctors there were rather horrified by his prescriptions. Quite a few were given to treat symptoms brought on by multiple other medications reacting to each other and so on.

    I would also ease up a touch on the exercise until this is squared away. Higher than necessary volume with little to no time to recover will eventually do more harm than good. Wishing you the best with all of it.

    Unfortunately no. I see specialists (urologist (kidney issue), oncologists, neurologists, and a rheumatologist) and it’s pretty much impossible to get referred elsewhere. I have active duty military insurance so I have to have a referral to see these doctors and most wont accept it but for example I see my oncologists and I think she’s out of her mind. I’ve had 7 biopsies under her care and somehow they all come back inconclusive but reactive. Then on a pet scan it showed cancer activity and it’s been spreading and i tried to see another oncologist because I wasn’t getting treated and whatever this is is obviously spreading and I tried so many different place like cancer centers of America to try to get an answer and they won’t accept me without a cancer diagnosis. But like how am I suppose to get a cancer diagnosis if no other oncologist will see me to diagnose me. That’s basically the story for all my doctors. I take 12 NSAIDS a day. One prescription is 3 pills 3 times daily, another is 3 pills daily. Which seems outrageous to me.

    Most of the time I refuse to take them, only time I take them is when the pain gets bad

    Wow, just wow...first, thank you for your service. I'm a disabled veteran myself, so I understand what you're dealing with insurance/restriction wise, but I never had to deal with potential cancer at the time either.

    The only thing I would recommend is to listen to your body regarding the workouts. An illness can be a trauma of sorts, and that requires a good balance of rest and nutrition. While it's hard to slow down when you're used to going 90mph, it might also be what you need for a little relief.

    Also keep researching alternative options. Sometimes, it's who you manage to talk to opposed to what the regs say. I've been out for 30 years so a bit has changed, but keep trying never the less.

    Yes, I get my insurance through the VA and at times it has been challenging to get what I need. For example, I had to train my GYN on how to prescribe a med that is not in the formulary, and it was a whole multi-months ordeal involving my regular doctor and cardiologist as well, but I finally got it and it has made a dramatic improvement in my quality of life.

    I've also had to struggle with my shrink to get Xanax. He keeps telling me it's addictive; I keep reminding him that he only gives me 6 at a time, so addiction is not going to be a problem.

    I wish my OH's parents docs had been as worried about benzos and addiction for them. Why can't there be a happy medium between negligently over-prescribing and fear of prescribing at all? >.<

    Anyway, point is, I hear No a lot and when possible, don't accept it.

    Glad you got checked by your Dr. Swollen feet following activity that gets your heart rate up could be something serious..

    For me it turned out to be a lung disease, for my friend an enlarged heart.

    Just be sure.
