Godspeed to you, man.

I have a kidney disease called IgA Nephropathy, which was discovered almost 10 years ago and led to needing a kidney transplant last summer. I discovered it after going to the hospital for an unrelated incident and my blood pressure was 200/133. Blood pressure and kidney issues are strongly related, so they looked into kidney problems and discovered it. I felt no symptoms at that point, but the closer I was to full blown kidney failure, the more symptoms that started up: Mostly fatigue and twitching legs/restless leg syndrome when I got sleepy.

What makes you think you have kidney problems? And if you think you have kidney problems, I would see a doctor. They are no joke.
