pancreatitis

Avatar n tn Ive never heard of those other tests you mentioned, here in Canada it takes forever to get tests done, it took 5 months for endoscopy, I dont even think we have those tests here or maybe they dont wana give them to me i dont know. I have a speciliast I might have to go back and see him again and wait another 2 months for another useless test.
Avatar n tn It has happened before quite frequently but now it is every time that I eat. I no longer have much of an appetite so I don't eat much. I have just started B12 shots and my Doctor has also put me on an iron supplement. Over the past I have tried elimination diets to see if different foods were the cause but with no success. I also suffer from chronic constipation (for the last 15 years). My gall bladder was removed 18 years ago.
Avatar n tn I have been taking levsin for the pain and sometimes it works and sometimes it does't. I also have thyroid condition. Can u please give some help. I have to stop my car when this happens and never know when it's going to happen.
Avatar f tn I hurts too bad when I heat. I take zantac 150 mg 2 times a day to hopefully help so when I do eat it might not hurt my stomach. I have had an Upper GI and I have had a Colonoscopy and both are just fine. So this is the only thing that is out of the ordinary. The fluid, oh and just in the past 2 weeks, I am passing a kidney stone. But I have been hurting since December so I don't think these are running hand in hand. But if anyone has any answers at all for me PLEASE !!!! respond.
Avatar n tn This is something you can talk to your primary Doc about. I'm told that they won't do any harm so really - unless you have side effects - there's not a downside to trying them. Your Doc might even have samples. This is something you can do now and it reduces the amount of work the pancreas has to do which will also reduce any damage to the pancreas. You can get them at the health food store, too, but make sure they only have proteases, amlyase and lipase.
Avatar f tn The blood test is avail and I tested negative for JC Virus. But from what I have read they really need to do an LP or DNA test. I hope what I read was old and this blood test I took is something newer.
Avatar n tn omg I have suffered same stuff for a few years now so glad im not alone was feeling like i made it all up that is also how my dr makes me feel test after test showing nothing grrrrrr infact right this minute im in pain as to y i found this site. once it was so bad the dr did a urine test and sent me straight to the er as it showed something but by the time the er tested my urine it was ok weird as morphine was given and sent home.
Avatar n tn they did the blood work, ultrasound on my whole abdomen, and i finally went to a gastrointerologist and they finally decided it possibly be a small ulcer, i do not have any blood in my stool though, and i do not vomit blood much less vomit at all. i do feel nausous ALL the time, and i also feel better when i eat. so i guess i need help too being that i always get my hopes up on the few days i feel better but it always comes back and i dont get it!
Avatar n tn Now no burps, no stomach pain, no diarreah and I feel free to eat what I likee without worrying, and when i do burp it does not smell. I feel like I have more energy. I heard worms feed on sugar and destroy the good bacteria in your gut leadin to some infood tolerances and food not properly being digested, leading to the fermenting of food in the stomach being the reason for the smell of rotting.
Avatar n tn Sometimes ( a lot of the time) the neuros don't know what is causing these symptoms and symptom management (Lyrica, Neurontin, anti-depressants) is all you can do as well as watch and wait for progression or regression. I hope I have helped. I have been so helped by so many posters on this site!
Avatar n tn Changed my diet (was drinking lots of soda and taking NSAID pain relievers every day) for the most part, but due to my work schedule I do eat too much fast food to this day. I drink nothing but water now, I have been watching everything I do. I wait tables at night so being on my feet seems to always help, and these pains occur a lot less. Also they seem to have gotten better by doing 2 weeks course of Prylosec OTC. But still I am not "cured" and I just had an episode today.
