Celebrex and pancreatitis

Common Questions and Answers about Celebrex and pancreatitis

celebrex

i have had a full blood count and it is OK , and as for the depression i had tried many ssris and maois (medications) and i havent liked any of them , i am looking at the possibility of fibramyalgia as my mother is suffering from this , however it it the high ferritin levels that is worrying me , one of my relatives have hemochromitosis i have been tested and did not have this illness .
Still having loose stools (less diarrhea, but still very fluffy and loose (sorry for the details), and I went to get a back Xray (which showed nothing) and was given Celebrex and stopped the Methocarbamol. By day 3 of the Celebrex, the back pains ceased, but unofrtunateIy, I began having considerably more stomach trouble. Much of anything I ate, particularly dairy, made my stomach sound like Jaba the Hut.
Not realizing a possible connection, I took the same dose again the following day and 3 celebrex (1 day dose)during that week. Problem with frequent urination continues six weeks later. 6-7x a night at minimum. Problem also during the day. I should note that I have been previously diagnosed as having tight bladder neck muscle, so I generally did not empty my bladder in tests (assume it was 1/2 full). I understand correlation vs. causation.
However, there is validity to the premise that pain will actually keep you alive longer, and it's always an ongoing challenge to find the balance of pain and/or anxiety control. Remember, too, that acute co-morbid events, ie: coronary, pulmonary or spontaneous bleeding and clotting can occur at any time and hasten death Additionally, it is not uncommon for liver failure patients to wax and wane in terms of their mentation, confusion and overall state.
I do have duodenol nodulariies, but the doctor said that will not cause the pain. I had pancreatitis 3 years ago...and about 5 months ago started with the ribcage and epigastric pain. ERCP showed gallbladder EJ of 34 which I understand is not bad. My lipase is up again and the md yesterday says that is from pancreatitis inflammation caused from biliary dyskinesia. No stones were found. My cholesterol was 237...HDL is good. Potassium was/is 5.4/5.8. No etiology found.
and have gone off antibiotics, neurontin, and celebrex during that time. Have had a negative CT scan and many negative blood tests (including hepatic panel)- except for high glucose - and negative culture for H. pylori. The pain is nearly constant in some part of my mid-abdomen, but is horrendous when it goes to my back, left of spine, above the waist, and lasts for hours - usually starting in afternoon, and worsens with lying down. Can't get in to see the G.I.
Have any of you been checked for acute or chronic pancreatitis? My husband has acute and the pain you are experiencing sounds just like his. Especially constipation and the location of the pain. It is a very serious disease.
previous history of fibromyalgia, small hiatal hernia, dueodenal ulcer, cholecystectomy, vental hernia repair, and 2 c-sections. Curent medications, celebrex 200mg 1 per day, and skelaxin 800mg 1 per day. Upon medical exam, mid epigastric tenderness, lab work revealed elevated lipase. 1st draw 379 (normal < 179), 2 days later 2nd draw lipase is 385. Dx ? chronic pancreatitis. After 1 mo. still continuing with my symptoms i visited my family physician again.
While trying to continue to treat her for the residual ear pain a doctor put her on celebrex, and you guessed it reactivated the ulcers. Since that time we have been on a rollercoaster ride of treatment. She had a whole regimen of blood work done. Her WBC always was slightly elevated as was her sedrate. She had elevated ANCA which had everyone thinking auto immune syndrome (she had a severe reaction to sun exposure the summer before).
The doctor told me it was a condition known as costochondritis and has me taking Celebrex as needed. But I don't really feel that this is the problem. I've had all the tests done, upper and Lower scopes, cat scan of liver which shows I have a cyst but he says that's a normal thing with age) My blood test showed a higher than normal count (relating to the liver) but he said it wasn't that high and could have been related to something I ate.
it comes and goes still and I am still fighting the beast. I take a celebrex ever so often and that seems to settle it down. If you find out more can you let me know? My ache is down the right side not in front. maybe we can get to the bottom of this!
I'm going to try something like Celebrex or Vioxx instead and see how that works. At this stage the Hydros aren't even working anyway, so I have nothing to lose. Of course I still also have anxiety and panic attacks to deal with, which is why I'm taking Xanax. I'm going to try an antidepressant like Paxil or Prozac instead of these damn Xanax. Well, off to bed for me.

I had my gall bladder removed over two years ago, as the doctors felt the sludge in my gallbladder was causing me to have pancreatitis. I had ercp's, and gastric tests done, also the billary mamnometry and they still do not know what to do, for my chronic pancreatits and constant heartburn, gerd. I am on all the stomach meds that are available and still no cure . Would like to hear from others that are dealing with recurrent pancreatitis.
I then had an ERCP done and while no obstruction was noted I did end up with pancreatitis and was in the hospital for 5 days. The 'pancreatitis' pain has now resolved but my original pain remains. I can now relate some of the pain to after meals but that pain usually occurs on the right side. The left sided pain is ALWAYS there. It gets bad and then eases up but is always there. I do become nauseated at times but I am not vomiting. I lost 10 pounds in the hospital but put 6 back on.
I have suffered from chronic pancreatitis since childhood. I have been through Vicodin withdrawl twice, and would honestly rather face death than the hell of that again. My gastroenterologist sent me to a pain mngmnt. clinic today and the doctor gave me a handful of samples of Ultram. This was AFTER I told him of my addiction to Vicodin and Lortabs. He told me that Ultram was absolutely NOT addicting and that I should take two every 6 hrs. as needed.
He put in a stent and I got sicker. I developed mild pancreatitis (cleared in a few days) and the right side pain continued. He repeated the ERCP 2 weeks later and did a papillotomoy (made an incision in the bile duct to relax it and keep it open). Initially I did feel some better. The nausea eased and the dizzy spells stopped. I ate well again and gained 5 pounds back and felt stronger. Now, over the past couple of weeks the pain has started again!!!
but i have been getting some help from my doctor....i take celebrex and that really helps with the pain i highly reccommend it....and i also have been getting pain injections in that area....i got 6 shots in the little muscle inbetween the shoulderblade and spine 3 shots on both sides....and they are really helping me......so you all should check around to find a doctor that is wiling to go the extra mile to help you....i dont have insurance....but i qualify for assistance through my hospital...
Thanks Lauri, I will be sure to keep you informed. I have just tried celebrex with ralivia and all it managed to do was make me a zombie all day. I would rather live in pain. My Doctor suggested I go back to southern BC wher I am from, feels that the weather and no stress from my legal issues with my employer will help. We are leaving Sunday as the wife has recieved a good job offer there. We spent last winter there and i felt much better than here in the Rockies.
