Pain or strain in the chest area
When the kidneys start failing, there is an accumulation of toxins and waste products in the blood. The toxins along with the excess fluid, start accumulating in the lining of the heart, i.e. the pericardium, and cause severe pain in the chest. The patient feels frequent stress or strain on the chest. The condition is very alarming as it might lead to the development of heart failure to the accumulation of the fluid and toxins.
