Will Polycystic Kidney Disease Cause Muscle Tenderness and Fatigue

Will Polycystic Kidney Disease Cause Muscle Tenderness and FatigueCompared with kidney pain and hematuria, muscle tenderness and fatigue isn’t so common for Polycystic Kidney Disease patients. However, with the aggravation of kidney function, it indeed appear in some patients especially with advanced PKD. Is muscle tenderness and fatigue related to Polycystic Kidney Disease?

If this symptom appears in the early stage PKD, this problem may be due to other conditions. This is because all of PKD kidney cysts are quite small and don’t cause any harm to kidney functioning tissues in the early stage. Therefore, PKD patients can live without any symptom in the first several decades.

However, if muscle tenderness and fatigue occurs in advanced PKD, impaired kidneys may be the underlying cause. As we know, kidneys have several basic functions. They are cleansing blood, regulating blood pressure, maintaining electrolyte balance, producing urine and secreting EPO.

When inherent kidney cells are destroyed by enlarged kidney cysts, kidneys will fail to do the above works gradually. Then, a series of complications happen easily.

It is reported that about half of patients with Polycystic Kidney Disease will have kidney failure by age 60. In that condition, kidneys are unable to produce enough EPO, resulting in renal anemia that can contribute to lack of vigor and strength. This is one reason of muscle tenderness and fatigue. Other reasons are the build up of waste products and toxins and electrolyte imbalance.

Now, we can make clear whether PKD can cause muscle problems. If you are suffering from this problem, don’t hesitate to tell your doctor timely. Remember that the sooner you take effective treatment, the better your health condition.
