Also the pain and inflammation would be worse after alcoholic drinks and can raise the temperature. So also pancreatitis, hence get pancreatic enzymes done. However with chronic pancreatitis there is some bowel disorder, nausea, loss of appetite, weight loss etc. Since alcoholic drinks are causing a rise of temperature, do not ignore pancreatitis and your present condition of Barret’s esophagus and hiatal hernia. Also alcohol in any form raises the body temperature.

There are many other causes of acute pancreatitis but they are less common.. I will list them for you.

Common causes of low magnesium are hypoparathyroidism, hyperaldosteronism, ulcerative colitis, alcoholic liver disease, pancreatitis etc. I would suggest you get the blood levels of the following checked if they have not already been checked: potassium, calcium, sodium, magnesium, vitamin B complex, or vitamins B1, B3, or B6 and Vitamin D. Generally deficiencies of any of the above can cause muscle twitching and spasms in localized or generalized areas of the body.

We went to the ER my husband was diagnosed with Pancreatitis and was hospitalized for 3 days (he does not drink) but was recently diagnosed with diabetes (3months ago). 3 days after being released from the hospital he was having the same symptoms and I took him back to the ER. This time they decided to do a CT scan and found a 3mm RML subpleural nodule. Should we worry about this nodule he's only 38 years old and has been a smoker for the last 22 years of his life.

I am still wondering how long I can expect to have these side effects of withdrawal?
I'm trying hard not to fall into the trap of self-diagnosing myself. However, I am reading alot of things that point in the direction of Pancreatitis, IBS, and Diabetes. As a child I used to suffer from what felt like severe pains or cramping in my midsection. Nothing was ever done about it, as I got older it went away, but I remember those days sometimes in elementary school when I had to go to the nurse because I could barely walk the pains were so bad.
I believe I might have pancreatitis. I am an ex-alcoholic. My grandma had cancer of the pancreas. I hurt when I eat meat. Caffeine hurts me too. The pain is in my abdomen and all throughout my back. My stool is yellow during an attack of this pain. And my shoulders always hurt during these episodes. I have had many tests performed, including CT scans. Is pancreatitis elusive? Could it be evading tests?
In all probability the symptoms are due to alcoholic pancreatitis and hepatitis. It can also be food poisoning. Take an OTC lactobacillus preparation and yoghurt with your meals. Drink plenty of fluids. Eat light, do not stay hungry but eat simple things like toast, porridge, cereals, crackers, banana, rice, peeled apple, etc. Take ORS. Take over the counter antacid and antiemetic (this SOS for vomiting). Consult a doctor immediately. Take care!
