Pancreatitis causes nausea

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis causes nausea


Avatar n tn Ive been sick since 2004,at first the doctors were saying it was chronic pancreatitis,then they were saying it wasnt,what do you think it could be...
Avatar n tn In November of last year I had an ERCP where they didn't find any stones in the bile duct or anything but ended up with Pancreatitis and hospitalized for 4 days and out of work several weeks. Then the pains subsided and other than having terrible Acid Reflux I didn't appear to have any problems. Then out of the blue last Friday around noon time I started getting terribly nausiated. I thought that I might be coming down with the flu.
Avatar m tn I have had issue's with not getting hunger pains for the last year so i have had a colposcopy and today I had a ultra sound and Hida scan the gall bladder report I got back was that everything was functioning well but then she asked if I have had pancreatitis in the past and I said no not that I knew of she she that it showed that I have had it before but I guess everything looked ok now? What is this and what does it mean should i be concerned?
Avatar n tn I haven't yet found any specific food or drink that causes the nausea to be worse. I have pretty much had to give up coffee because it seems as though it does aggravate it - not cause it, just aggravate it. For me to give up coffee is unbelievable. I have worked three jobs for the last four years and have pretty much lived on coffee. Going cold turkey in the hospital wasn't much fun! Oh well, at least one bad habit bit the dust. I do find that the pain I have is worse after I eat.
Avatar n tn Can a person develop chronic pancreatitis after having acute pancreatitis that resulted from having an ERCP? I have developed abdominal pain that radiates to my side and back that is relieved when I lean forward and worsens when I lean back. No nausea or vomiting, no fever. Should I follow up with my doctor? I had the acute pancreatitis around 2004. Thanks for your response.
Avatar n tn If the diagnosis continues to be elusive, you can consider a second GI opinion. Causes other than pancreatitis can be considered. Malabsorption and celiac disease can also cause mucous-based and oily stools. Sending the stool off for such analysis, along with obtaining blood tests to exclude celiac disease can be discussed with your GI physician.

Avatar f tn However, broad-spectrum antibiotics, and other antimicrobials should be used to cover possible infectious causes such as toxoplasmosis infection, and to cover infections secondary to the pancreatitis, if warrented. Treatment of pancreatitis in cats include the following: For Anorexia (not eating), use appetite stimulant medications. For Dehydration, use IV and/or Sub Q fluid therapy, For Hypothermia (dangerously decreased body heat), use incubators, heating pad, etc.
Avatar n tn he has given me nothing for my discomfort or nausea. He seemed concerned about this elevated lipase but gave me zero information as to what where or why? I have looked and read what I can online, but not sure what I read. any input into this would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar f tn They should have stented you. Dr cotton and lehman etc will always stent a patient since it usually causes pancreatitis when you do not. I would get in to see Dr cotton to get his opinion. Amitryptiline is another drug option that may help.
902019 tn?1249865014 I was diagnosed 2 years ago with AIP, have a 25 year history of autoimmune disorders (eosinophilic vasculitis, mild Sjogren's). Usually have done well with prednisone for the various flare-ups but with AIP, still recurring symptoms and the elevated IgG4 periodically. Next step may be Imuran. Is there anyone out there who has had good results with Imuran for autoimmune pancreatitis?
Avatar n tn I do not have any stomach nausea at all--just that horrible feeling under my tongue/chin. It happens with or without food. What is going on with me?
Avatar m tn Hi Constant nausea could be due to various causes and not all of them are related to stomach. There are many illness and medications that cause nausea. Refer: Internal ear problems, migraine, diabetes, gall bladder diseases, pancreatitis etc also cause nausea. Please go through the link and please discuss all the possibilities with your physician. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else.
Avatar n tn PS - blood work from each ER visit showed mildy to moderately elevated amylase, creatanine, chloride, neutrophils, esonophils, lymphocytes and platelets - trace blood & white cells in urine (IVP normal). And hypochromic anemia - but B12 & all other normal causes of chronic anemia ruled out. Sed rate varies from nornal to high. BP low. Normal EKG's. Mildly elevated microsomal antibodies. ANA recently went down from 1:2560 to 1:160. I am taking 2 muscle relaxers and 2 300mg ea.
Avatar n tn I must also add that since the heartburn started I got a weird type of abdominal pain which is a pain upon pressing deep just below the navel, it pulsates there, its not otherwise really noticeable and I have mild nausea sometimes.
Avatar n tn Hi - well my daughter saw the gastro doctor about doing an ERCP for her pancreatitis and he was very cautious. That is good. But he thinks maybe she has IBS and not pancreatitis. So now we are more confused than ever. The symptoms that lead to his thought that it is IBS is that her pain always comes with her menstral cycle and she has mucus in her stools. Other than that her symptoms go more with pancreatitis.
Avatar n tn Gallbladder problems and alcohol cause 60-75% of the cases of people diagnosed with pancreatitis. Other causes can be from drugs used to treat other medical conditions, hereditary conditions, or post-ERCP testing. You didn't say whether your doctor discussed this with you. I would also suggest that if you are not seeing a gastroenterologist already, that you do so, as there are many diagnostic tests they can do, and various treatments recommended per your individual condition.
Avatar f tn I love my husband more than life itself, I can't imagine a world without him, and unfortunately he has Chronic Pancreatitis. His CP causes awful, painful nights and even days, so I stand by his side and aid him. He doesn't usually say when he's not feeling good, because truly I think it's all the time, but he has better days then some. I love being intimate with him, sometimes I miss it and sometimes I know I need to tend to his needs more than worry about sex.
Avatar n tn disease of the biliary tract, for example: gall stones blocking the duct where it opens into the duodenum alcoholism trauma - bullet or knife wound duodenal ulcer hyperparathyroidism - over active parathyroid glands hyperlipidaemia - abnormally high levels of lipids such as cholesterol in the blood viral infection certain drugs such as corticosteroids and thiazide diuretics. The main symptom of pancreatitis is severe abdominal pain that is sudden in onset and continuous.
Avatar n tn as you probably know, the most common causes by far are gallstones or alcohol intake. Some people get it for no known reason, or from medications. What might be done surgically -- or whether it should be done at all -- would depend in part on whether the cause becomes known. As to the stricture itself: first, it's not really rare to see the enzymes go up without the bilirubin. It depends in part on how narrow it is.
Avatar f tn Wouldn't even drink milk, her favorite. Last Tuesday vet said she has pancreatitis from her bloodwork, took her off Prednisone for allergies (he said was one of causes), put her on Hill's I.D. diet, no human snacks, gave her shot of nausea medicine. Right away she ate her dinner, and continued to eat better and better, got well and stayed that way several days.
Avatar m tn Hi, your persisting symptoms of nausea and abdominal pain could indicate a viral gastroenteritis. The other causes could be jaundice if there is yellowish discoloration of skin, food poisoning if the symptoms occurred shortly after taking food, peptic ulcer disease and sometimes cholecystitis and pancreatitis. Please consult your primary care physician for further evaluation. In the meantime take oral fluids and OTC acetaminophen for the pain. Regards.

Avatar f tn I just got over acute pancreatitis and I would agree with your guess. Do you have a temperature? When will you be home? Okay, if it's pancreatitis, inflammation of the pancreas, it is usually caused by two things, alcohol or gall stones. There are other causes like my medication-induced kind, but that's under 2% If you are in that much pain and do have a fever, consider going to urgent care or the ER where you are. A blood test can check your lipase levels.
Avatar n tn Viral gastroenteritis would be the most common causes of acute vomitting. More chronic causes can include pancreatitis, gallbladder disease, or anatomical abnormalities. If the vomiting does not subside, an upper GI series can be considered to look for a blockage or narrowing (i.e. pyloric stenosis), as well as an ultrasound to evaluate the gallbladder. Blood tests to evaluate the pancreas can also be considered. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
Avatar n tn The MRI of the brain would rule out obvious neurological causes of nausea. These options can be discussed with your personal physician. Followup with your personal physician is essential.

Avatar f tn What do you think---my gastro doctor thinks something would have shown up if it was pancreatitis---i am scared, queasy sometimes and don't know what else it could be---could gastritis and bile reflux be causing the nausea? Can someone have pancreatitis for 5 years without a diagnosis?
Avatar n tn I get the red face and great energy on the second day after the injection and the 3rd day causes the nausea and vomiting. EGG's have shown gastritis most of the time even without having had any pain when the test shows I should be in agony. My GI does not see the relationship of this drug to the episodes. But you cannot tell me otherwise. The last episode caused a NG tube to be put in to help out with the nausea. It did help. Any help with this problem would be appreciated.
Avatar n tn If you have eosinophic esophagitis, have you found the foods that you are allergic to - that are triggering some of the symtpoms that you're having? Eosinophic esophagitis is an entitiy that is distinct from GERD. Vascular problems in to the pancreas can also cause an inhomogenous pancreas.
