The Atypical HUS Foundation

Hi ! Just hoping someone sees this and has some sort of idea as to what I am talking about. I was diagnosed with atypical HUS June 2015. Since then my kidneys have been improving but I have INTENSE left side pain. It is right below my left kidney. After ct scans, getting my appendix removed and ultra sounds. No one is finding a reason for my pain. I am so frustrated. I am learning what I can about AHUS but does anyone have chronic pain with this disease?

Hi Liz, I'm new to this site so sorry for a late comment.  I just wanted to share that I too have left side pain.  It is my spleen which is enlarged.  I have to take pain meds I get so miserable.  I do understand.  Keep talking with your doctors and I hope you find answers and some resolution.  I hope this finds you feeling better.  Blessings, Jenny

Hi Liz,  so sorry that you are in this situation. Assuming that you've already discussed this with your medical team at length, but this site does have a blog at

At the end, there's a link to an Alexion press release about aHUS potentially affecting other organs in the body - you can connect with Alexion's OneSource team at 1-888-SOLIRIS to discuss this with an informed nurse/ case manager.  Hope this helps, please keep us posted.
