Pancreatitis and eating disorders

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis and eating disorders


Avatar m tn Now its been basically non-stop, confirmed by mri, that it is chronic pancreatitis, and fatty liver. Im being sent to a pain specialist for the pain, and hoping he can offer relief, because Ive been recieving very little help from my doctor with that. Im 5'5", used to be about 138lbs, and now am 162, with gain of 10lbs a month on a low fat diet, no meat, no bread, soft food. I dont understand except unless wieght gain is from thyroid going wrong, im hypothyroid.
Avatar m tn My daughter was seen in the ER for jaundice, high Liver enzymes. She was admitted and found that Hepatitis test was negative. ECRP was performed where they found a stone lodged in her biliary duct. After this procedure, the pancreas became irritated, there was pain, amylase and lipase were elevated. Doctor said this was normal since he did extensive work in getting the stone out. He also placed a stent in the biliary duct to help with drainage.
Avatar n tn I have pancreatic growths on head and tail. Now 4cm. Smaller ones in the body. Had ERCP MAR.2010. GROWTHS much smaller then. Walked in to UCLA WITH NO PAIN, only CT SHOWED THEm. Was awake. Anesthesiologist apologisted for doing all the wrong things. He couldn't stop saying SORRY.Pain started during procedure and has never stopped. Had so much daily vomiting and diarrehea last year (2013). Lost 40lbs. In hospital last year 80 days. Severe vomiting and diarrehea better since last summer.
Avatar n tn I wasn't really given much say in the matter, as the pancreatitis was a nasty attack and I was strongly advised to get my gallbladder out asap after it. It was a straightforward procedure, with no after effects. I can't really say I felt better, because apart from the pancreatitis incident, I never had any problems beforehand!
902019 tn?1249865014 The water didn't dry me and I was drinking water and eating fruits for the single purpose of creating saliva. I thought that maybe boiling the water created a poisoning reaction, because I was using iron pots with white keramics but scratched in several parts, and the water turned brownish when boiled. Then I stoped drinking tea with boiled water, I puted to the sun to soak.
Avatar n tn I have been doing research off and on for the past 9 and 1/2 months since having an acute pancreatitis attack and having my gallbladder removed. My liver and pancreas enzymes have pretty much returned to normal. My liver enzymes ocassionally run over the high end of the scale, but not by much (a few points) and my surgeon explained that it may be that I am just one of the people who fall outside the standard scale.
Avatar n tn Within weeks of going off gluten I felt like a new person. And when I say go off gluten I mean off gluten. That means no eating out unless you have talked with the chef. (cross contamination.) All of the physical symptoms have vanished including the eczema and asthma. My mental health has taken longer. When you have villous atrophy you aren't getting the vital nutrients (amino acids and vitamins) for the building blocks for neurotransmitters.
Avatar m tn You will get all the pancreatitis info. that you need. It is and scroll down to Pancreatitis Online Discussion Board & Support Group , click on that and then go to the right of your screen and click Join This Group! It is free and you will meet people that are going through the same thing. Actually it saved my daughter's life. She like you had alot of pain and they thought it was her gallbladder and removed it . She continued to go down hill. We found a dr.
Avatar n tn It has a wealth of information on both acute and chronic panc. and related disorders, and very helpful members to whom you might introduce your query. Do hope this is of use. Best wishes to you.
Avatar n tn Do a little research on this and see if it fits. The pain resolves around eating. Either not being able to or having to eat. I got pancreatitis from the precedure it was well worth it to get rid of the pain. Pancreatitis pain for me was much different - the pain spread across the rib cage settling mostly in the left side, and in the back. I did have severe bloating and was unable to pass gas. Pushing on my stomach was unbearable. I hope this helps you.
Avatar f tn Granddaughter has been put on low fat diet - no more milkshakes, fatty foods and has a medication to help process meals/food. She started eating foods because she was very hungry and sick of light soups, "milkshakes," applesauce, ensure, etc. but that is when the pain was increased after solid food was ingested. There is not any bright red or black stool. Granddaughter visits same doctor next week for follow-up.
Avatar n tn i have a 4mo bit bull shes not eating for about 3days and she lost some wight. And looks very sad and weak and not as playfull as befor i need help.
Avatar n tn I don't know if i have CP but the signs I keep reading seem a lot like what I'm experiencing. The pain type, after drinking or eating fatty foods (I've had some pain today all day and last night I had a beer and fatty meats at a German restaurant), is a lot like what I read. Upper left, sometimes radiating lower, sometimes under rib cage, once two weeks ago it seemed like it hit the back for a second.
Avatar n tn I now have chronic pancreaitits, which causes me considerable pain daily. Eating anything aggravates it. I get horrible pain and nausea. My pain is mostly concentrated in my Upper left quadrant of my abdomen and it radiates to the left side of my back. I also get pains in my left shoulder, sometimes in my right. It is a horrible illness, I just wanted you to be aware of some of the more common symptoms so you can talk with your doc about it! Good Luck!
595027 tn?1238984901 Blood tests in the beginning showed low red and whites, next blood test showed high whites low reds, next showed fat in the liver high whites normal reds, next showed inflamation from a c+ protein or something like that I have test result of more recent blood work but the previous ones were never sent to me, next my b12 level was low, next my prolactin level was low, next I had high cholesterol AND I AM NOT EVEN EATING ANYTHING!!!! how does that happen I wonder?
Avatar m tn The other causes could be gastritis, peptic ulcer disease and GERD. Kidney disorders too produce colicky and sharp pain. Sometimes anxiety with flatulence can cause this pain. Regards.
Avatar f tn Hi, the common causes for nausea and vomiting are gastroenteritis (infection), gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, systemic infections, appendicitis, intracranial hypertension, hepatitis, eating disorders, inner ear disorders, and certain medications. But since her blood tests and ultrasound report are normal certain other causes need to be considered. Angina or chest pain due to inadequate supply of blood to the heart muscle can produce atypical symptoms of vomiting.
Avatar f tn The doctor said 20% of people have idiopathic pancreatitis and that you just learn to manage but I don’t want to keep getting pancreatitis every month to month and a half. All the doctors and surgeon have said they are certain that the first attack was because of gallstones but if it was and then the second attack was because a stone slipped through and the third attack was because I didn’t know you weren’t supposed to drink while the pancreas was healing why did I get it the 4th time?
Avatar n tn Anything ingested containing wheat, rye, barley, oats causes abdominal distention and lots and lots of gas and then progresses to diarrhea. If you get on line there is a website called www.glutenintolerancegroup. There will be a section on symptoms and see if you can relate to any of them. Once I was on a gluten-free diet, my diarrhea and gas completely went away in only a week. Once I ingest even the smallest amount of gluten-containing food, I will have symptoms in 20-30 minutes.
Avatar m tn It can be due to hypertension,Gastroesophageal reflux disease(do you have heart burn and difficulty in swallowing) and hiatal hernia, disorders involving the lung like Pneumonia, pulmonary embolism, pneumothorax etc;cardiac diseases, lung cancer, thoracic outlet syndrome,pancreatitis,gall bladder disease(fullness and pain in the right side of abdomen and chest after eating a greasy or fatty meal) and muscle pain[costochondritis(an inflammation of the joints in your chest)].
946578 tn?1258666887 Basically the pancrease is backing up in pressure, and the enzymes inside the pancrease are eating the organ along with liver bile causing you to be really sick. There is a blood test to confirm pancreatitis of some sort but sometimes after the damage has been done the test will show a false negative. Only accurate usually during acute phases of pancreatitis. The problem is what is causing is a stone that is stuck or is it a sphincter or oddi dysfunction?
Avatar m tn I am wondering if I can get any advice on this. I had acute Pancreatitis and I have elevated Triglycerides.
Avatar m tn The common causes for vomiting are gastroenteritis (infection), gastritis, peptic ulcer disease, systemic infections, appendicitis, intracranial hypertension, hepatitis, eating disorders, inner ear disorders, and certain medications. But since your tests are normal certain other causes need to be considered. Angina or chest pain due to inadequate supply of blood to the heart muscle can produce atypical symptoms of vomiting. This is diagnosed with an EKG or treadmill test.
5882236 tn?1377621424 Then, I started eating horrible foods again and felt like foods and liquids were like hanging by my adam's apple. I would have to wash food down with water. It was very uncomfortable. I changed my diet again, and it got better within a few days. Now, I don't have that feeling. But, I notice that after I eat, and sip some water, it will feel as if the water is pushing pieces of food down my throat.

Avatar n tn I am off all anti-depressants and pain medications and feel like I'm slowly waking from a nightmare of doubt and un-certainty that was probably being caused by the drugs.
Avatar n tn However, that was 10 years ago and she seem to have made a full recovery ( do you say that with eating disorders? Its not like they are cancer right ?) O.K. Now the recent stuff. Nov 07- she starts having intense stomach pain that cause her to go home from work. The pains seems to subside but over the next couple of weeks they come back at random times with no apparent correlation to a specific diet.
Avatar n tn Had you gone to the ER and your levels were up then I would have called the GI the next day, if indeed they would have released you. Then the hospital would have admitted you for pancreatitis and by golly your GI would have been informed then. I also hear folks say, you need to get the stress out of your life. To some extent they are right but if the SOD is the reason you are stressing, then what? Give the doctors a call and see what they are willing to do for you.
