IS THERE A CURE FOR IT OR A MEDICINE FOR IT THAT U CAN TAKE!!! MY DOCTOR HE SAID HIS LAST RESORT IS TO GO IN AND CUT THE MUSCLE TO MY PANCREAS AND MEASURE THE PRESURE IN IT?
Avatar n tn Please refer to article from Medline "Cyclo-Oxygenase- and Capsaicin-Sensitive Afferant Febres Affect Beta-Adrenoceptor-Evokeked Response in the Rat Urinary Bladder" key word: NSAIDs Tucci (author), Indimetacin. Ok, after taken 1000 mg (never had this dose level before) of Ibuprofen, I had began to experience frequent urination that night. Not realizing a possible connection, I took the same dose again the following day and 3 celebrex (1 day dose)during that week.
Avatar f tn I'll assume you have Hashimoto's thyroiditis since it's the most common cause of hypothyroidism. And so the condition that is suspect is Lupus since it's a listed cause of elevated GGT, fatigue and joint pain. The following info is from the book "The Everything Guide To Thyroid Disease" by Theodore C.
701334 tn?1262857103 male,non smoker,stopped drinking(weeked warrior,heavy at times,but stopped) i have a buddy with pancreatitis,and im scared this could be that too,but i look at him,and compare myself to him,and im NOWHERE near as bad as he is,,,,but what could be causing this pain in center into my back?
Avatar m tn So, based on these values his doctor would have said that pancreatitis has resolved. Alcohol can also cause gastritis and acid peptic disease and this can cause chest pain. Another cause would be GERD, (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease), where the acid contents of the stomach come up into the esophagus. Ask him to follow these lifestyle measures to help with his symptoms. Take frequent small meals. Eat dinner about two hours before sleeping. Elevate the head end of the bed.
Avatar f tn There's a new article being carried on the Reuter's News Wire and it's posted in several sites talking about taking NSAIDS (rectally) before having an ERCP. It's saying that in one study use of the NSAID significantly reduced the possibility of post-ERCP pancreatitis. It's an article that definitely worth looking at and talking to your doctor about. The article on Reuter's is titled: "Prophylactic NSAID Reduces Post-Endoscopy Pancreatitis.
Avatar n tn just to add, can chronic pancreatitis cause gastropathy? if so how and how is it treated?
Avatar n tn During the past 12 months she has been under a considerable amount of continous stress and began to experience unpleasant symptoms including free floating anxiety and feelings of panic. On visiting her family doctor she was prescribed the antdepressant Lustral, which is a SSRI type drug. From the begining she described many unpleasant side effects, including diahrreah, nausia, balance peoblems, jaw clenching, ticks etc. May of thse side effects are well documented.
Avatar m tn I have been given a lot of steroids in the past and was on hydroxychloroquinn for a few years but discontinued after I bled so bad the first attack. NSAIDs kill me, so I don't take any and i haven't taken steroids for about a year and a half. I know that c-diff and vomiting don't usually go together but I swear i didn't have any loose stool. The pain is awful, the docs treating me like I'm crazy is too.
Avatar n tn Biliary disease Pancreatitis Irritable bowel disease Ischemic bowel disease Gastroparesis Drugs (i.e., NSAIDs, iron, potassium supplements, bisphosphonates, antibiotics) Ischemic heart disease I stress that this answer is not intended as and does not substitute for medical advice - please see your primary care physician for further evaluation of your individual case. Thanks, Kevin, M.D.
Avatar m tn However, every doctor I've asked has just shrugged and recommended NSAIDs until it goes away. My neuro did suggest it might be my rhomboid muscle, but I'm not convinced muscle pain would last this long without getting any better. I've damaged tendons that didn't hurt this long. I do also have constant neck and head pain. Someone has suggest that I have cervical radiculopathy as the pain extends to my left shoulder and down my arm and peck sometimes. Could this be related?
Avatar f tn One of the most common causes of elevated liver enzymes is medications. Over-the-counter meds like Tylenol and NSAIDs like Ibuprofen and Naproxen Sodium can also cause elevated liver enzymes. Statins taken for cholesterol often cause elevated liver enzymes and also some common antibiotics. Exposure to certain toxins in the home or workplace can be the cause also. Here's an article that lists some medications that can result in elevated liver enzymes: http://www.medicinenet.
Avatar m tn You could try some OTC antacids and see if these tend to make a difference to the pain. If this does not help and there is no history of gastritis nor pain around the lower border of the chest bone, OTC tylenol/ NSAIDS may be tried (needless to say if any of these is present, tylenol/ NSAIDS are better avoided). In either case it is best advised to see a primary care physician to rule out the mentioned possibilities and for appropriate management. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar f tn I would suggest getting this evaluated by a primary care physician or an internist for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Meanwhile you could try some OTC NSAIDS, if there is no history of gastritis and see if these seem to help. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar m tn I also notice that alcohol (especially wine) and NSAIDs (ibuprofen, motrin, etc.) make it much worse.
Avatar f tn Ive had chronic pancreatitis for 25 years and SOD for the last 2. You are indeed correct that some narcotics can cause episodes of SOD to flare. I really sympathize with you because the pain from both SOD and pancreatic inflammation is awful. Through my experience and that of others ive spoken with it is usualy the morphine type pain meds that are more likely to give you trouble.
Avatar m tn I have said that to my primary care doctor, and Orthopedic that narcotics and NSAIDs make that pain worse, but its like talking to the wall...
254215 tn?1195096984 She is very happy, eats and drinks well, barks, runs, and plays with my other dogs. Could her liver still be failing despite all of this? I personally think her last bout of pancreatitis is what caused her liver enzymes to be high, is that possible? Thanks!!!
Avatar f tn chloroquine to reduce pain ,opthalmological consultation is required because of certain side effects 4.NSAIDS and antibiotics to treat other symtoms like fever 5.immunosuppressents :MMF and cyclosporine.sometimes you may need it depending on the situation.
Avatar n tn I am a 27 year old Canadian woman who has been living and working in Japan for the last 2 1/2 years. For the last year and a half I've been having a lot of problems with gastritis and reflux and I can't seem to get rid of them. I first noticed the symptoms last year when I felt a terrible burning in my stomach and had a lot of belching and heartburn after I ate. I had an upper GI X-ray done and there wasn't anything wrong except for excess acid production.
Avatar m tn As far as the IBS goes I've never been very proactice about lifestyle/eating changes to manage the IBS. The bleeding ulcers healed and I have never taken NSAIDS since for chronic back pain. Recently a doctor informed me that caffeine in high doses can worsen ulcers or inflame stomach lining. I was on fat burning pills and an intense workout regimen. At my heaviest I was 275.. I am currently at 175-180 on average. Before I lost the weight this last time I had plateaued at about 230.
Avatar n tn The internal medicine doctor said I might have polychondritis and not to worry about it. Just take pain meds (but I get blood/diarrhea off NSAIDS). I've also been sent to a physical therapist who said that I have ribs that may be popping out of place regularly (subluxation) that could be causing the chest pain. She also thought that I suffered from "lax ligaments" (I can bend my thumb down to touch my wrist).
1840891 tn?1431551393 Some NSAIDs, particularly sulindac (Clinoril) and diclofenac, showed higher rates of hepatic injury and transaminase elevation more than three times the upper limit of normal compared with placebo. However, even in large systematic reviews, clinically significant outcomes, such as hospitalization or death, were rare. NSAIDs do carry some risk in persons with impaired hepatic function.
Avatar n tn I have been on a lowfat diet since January because of the pancreatitis and have lost weight and do not want to lose more as I'm already to thin. I should mention that I did have my gallbladder out two and a half years ago and ended up need a blood transfusion as I was bleeding internaly.
Avatar n tn Scroll now to May 3rd and read the post pancreatitis, some very helpful info there from others that have had it. My pain sounds similar to yours.
517981 tn?1216785618 Usually a course of NSAIDS or cortisone injections can help the pain and swelling. Your doc is on the right track so stick with her. I hope things get better for you soon, been there myself and although it takes time, some how we all get through this stuff. Welcome to our forum and please feel free to write just to vent, we have all been through a lot here and having people that really understand helps more than you can imagine.
Avatar n tn There is no pain just a pressure that sometimes wraps around the chest and back on either side.Feels like hands wrapped around my midsection and squeezing.This pressure seems to move around. Sometimes on the left or right. It leaves as fast as it comes and is intermittant all day. I have stomach grumbling, little bit of gas, bloating which may go down a little further. This is all on the mild side, no severe pain. It is just noticeable enough to cause a little discomfort.
Avatar f tn If I do have a flare it usually sits on 9-1/2 with no letup for 29 hrs and then drops to sit between 7-9 for another 48 hrs PRA has a history of NSAIDS not being able to help --
544292 tn?1268886268 I have been taking Pregabelin (Lyrica) for a number of weeks now, along with Tramadol. I am very aware that when I take a full dose of both drugs together I feel a very strange almost "spaced out" feeling. I feel unsteady on my feet and find it difficult to walk a few yards without having to hold on to something to steady myself. If I reduce the Pregabelin dose it is a bit better. I would be interested to hear from anyone with similar experiences when using both drugs.
407651 tn?1224193495 however i usually am carefull as to what i take as it seems that if i drink alchol i get really bad pains for days and ph goes up. i cant take nsaids,dihydrocodein and some other medications including diuretics as they all seem to cause me kidney pain. the last tests shwed that my kidneys were ok. however i am having problems with my heart rate and am in process getting a POTS diagnosis.
