- Some people experience the swelling of some of their tissues that may include areas of the face, particularly around the eyes.
- Other symptoms can be seen in a person’s urine. There may be a drop in the volume of urine that a person discharges and a change in how his urine looks. There may be instances when blood is mixed with the urine, making it look darker.
- Other possible symptoms you may feel when you have nephritis include nausea, malaise or the feeling of generally being unwell, fatigue or tiredness, constant drowsiness, and headaches.
- Sometimes when a person’s nephritis progresses rapidly, he may experience symptoms like abdominal and joint pain, vomiting, and a noticeable loss of appetite.
