pancreatitis

Avatar f tn I was recently givin medication to help with a frozen shoulder. I took two Solpadol pills and within half an hour of taken them i was rushed into hospital with severe stomach pain. The doctors ran test and i was told it was pancreatitis. I was checked for Gal stones, was clear. They said they found no cause, and it was put down to alcohol misuse. I am not a heavy drinker. Could the Solpadol have caused this? I read in the leaflet one of the severe side affects is pancreatitis.
Avatar n tn The Puestow Proceedure is designed as a measure to reduce/eliminate pain thereby reducing or eliminating the use of pain relievers. Pain is generally caused by the reduced power of the organ to drain due to blockages. Surgical placement of a stent to bypass the blockage can achieve better function of the organ while reducing pain.
Avatar n tn Feel free to post again if you have any more questions. What are the symptoms of chronic pancreatitis? The symptoms are very variable. Pain occurs in most patients at some stage of the disease. This may vary in intensity from mild to severe. It may last for hours or sometimes days at a time and may require strong painkillers to control it. It often radiates through to the back and can sometimes be relieved by crouching forward.

Avatar n tn Taking deep breath causes pain. Entire stomach feels bloated. Lots of gurgling and grumbling noises all the time. Tender to touch. Relief: Eating up to 30 minutes then starts again.
Avatar n tn Other than that her symptoms go more with pancreatitis. Pain above her left ribcage that goes to her back - pain about her shoulder blades. When we saw the Dr.he had a complete blood work report in his hand and it showed raised amylase (131) and lipase levels (718) which I always thought showed pancreatitis. When I questioned him he said some people just have high levels and it is normal for them. I don't buy that.
Avatar n tn That is my central question. I take pain medication but still have problems. Some of the meds I've taken for pain have even seemed to make it worse while others make it better. I've had all of the suggestions like Crohns, kidneys, liver, g.b. - but all have been supposedly ruled out by tests. If it wasn't for the g.b. tests that were negative I'd say it's classic gallbladder symptoms. Recently I've been wondering if there is some occassional liver swelling that causes problems in that area.
Avatar n tn She did not take this medication on a daily basis but overdosed. The second one almost died herself of pancreatitis. She is a admitted drug addict to vicodin. She has been honest from the beginning of her pregnancy about her addiction but never honest concerning the amount she has taken throughout her pregnancy or that she was taking "bootleg" pills. Therefore the doctors appear puzzled as to her condition based on only the facts that they know.
Avatar n tn They do not want to give you pain medication which is so silly. Who care if you get addicted? I just want some relief instead of sitting in tears all the time. I get so angry when the Dr.'s say maybe I will give you tylenol I just look at them and say its time for me to go.
Avatar f tn I give you all this background because in August of this year, I developed pancreatitis. Pain I had NEVER known! I went around for almost 2 months going from doctor to doctor (including my own gastroenterologist) and all blamed it on acid reflux. I kept putting my foot down because I know what acid reflux feels like and this pain was not indicative of acid reflux. Finally, I was referred to a gastroenterologist who was famous in the Dallas area for performing successful ERCPs.
Avatar n tn There are many causes of pancreatitis in childhood , viral etiology including mumps , infectious mononucleosis , influenza A, german measles , and Coxsackie B virus . These would produce a clinical picture of acute pancreatitis with severe epigastric pain , severe enough to cause the child to assume a sitting position , radiating to the back , persistent vomiting and fever . If the pancreatitis is due to a viral uncomplicated infection , the prognosis is good .
Avatar f tn The attacks also just mysteriously, pain is so severe that by the time I get to the ER I am screaming in pain. This occurs about 5-6 times per year. my physician has prescribed Inapsine also known as Droperidol. It ia a smooth muscle relaxer used often by anesthesiologists. my husband injects it IM in my hip and within 3-4 minutes all pain is resolved. I am certainly not recommendin this to anyone as we are all different with different problemns.
Avatar n tn html Patients with acute pancreatitis typically complain of upper quadrant abdominal pain that radiates to the back, is relieved by sitting up, and is associated with nausea and vomiting. Some, however, can have nonspecific complaints and varied findings on physical examination. Clinicians must thus rely on such laboratory tests as serum amylase and lipase to support the diagnosis.
793908 tn?1294708709 Julie had another Pancreatitis attack...she had diarreah & vomiting. I was prepared this time...I was scared but it was either me treating her or the ER Vet for 4 days again. I came to terms with my decision to treat her at home. I called my Vet & he said to give her the Flagyl that he gave me 2 wks. ago...just in case this attack happened again. I did & It worked after 1 day but I kept her on it all week.
Avatar m tn First time I was treated with during Winter 2007 tripletail, seroquol, effexor for 9 months. I came off medication and I felt so drained that I could not do anything over Summer of 2008. After being off medication for 4 months my illness came back in Fall 2008 and I received inection of cojectin, copixol, and ativan, and then physiatrist prescribed celexa and seroquol, and then switched from seroquol to olonzapine because serouqol was not working well.
Avatar m tn Now because the juice is not flowing out of the duct freely, it starts digesting the pancreas itself. This causes the uncontrollable pain (Spasms) in the abdomen part and pain can continue for hours and even a day unless a painkiller is used. Now my question to concerned person is that - Is there any cure for Chronic Pancreatitis ? Because this disease was diagnosed 12 years ago, when there was less advancement in medical sciences.
Avatar f tn 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. Untreated pancreatitis can cause long term damage to your pancreas.
Avatar f tn Other than that it can be pain due to pancreatitis, gastritis or kidney infection too. Please consult your PCP for primary examination followed by proper referral. Hope this helps. Take care!
151462 tn?1359175876 I am currently having a lot of abdominal pain. Mainly in the upper left, and my lower right sides. The pain in both of these areas aren't constant, but appear to be sticking around more often in the last week. I have no gallbladder, so that isn't the issue. I have had pancreatitis (unknown cause) twice, but he last time was 11 years ago. It doesn't feel like pancreatitis as when I had that I lost a lot of weight, and I haven't lost any weight now. In the past week the nausea has increased.
936335 tn?1246415831 I have pain in about ten minutes after I eat that causes severe pain. I keep a food journal to try to avoid different foods that causes the trigger. But the pain is so severe that is debilates me for the remainder of the day and causes severe back pain on the left side of my back near my spine. If I take whatever stomach medicine I am trying at the time, my enzymes to break the food down, and pain medicine then I can usually function pretty well without going into that severe pain.
Avatar n tn Also, blockage to the pancreatic orifice can cause pancreatic pain or attacks of pancreatitis. Papillary Stenosis can be caused by passage of stones, or scarring after treatments (e.g. endoscopic or surgical sphincterotomy). Papillary stenosis usually results in sufficient backup of bile flow that there is stretching (dilatation) of the bile duct. This can be recognized by scans and various x-rays, including ERCP. Papillary stenosis requires endoscopic or surgical treatment.

Avatar n tn I also have been going through a lot of life changes lately which have been very stressful. I am on no medication. Questions, What coluld this pain be and at what point should I be seriously worried?
Avatar f tn She ordered me to take pain medication, muscle relaxant, and vetigo medication. She told me I needed to see a neuro as soon as possible. So you were correct, it was coming from that site. She told me that they could do an xray if I wanted, but I declined sorta leaving it up to them telling her about my MRI and she siad that is better than an xray, so she said just see a neuro. Thank you again.
Avatar n tn Hello - thanks for asking your question. Causes of left upper quadrant pain include dyspepsia (ulcers, gastritis, esophagitis), pancreatitis, or splenic diseases. You have had Xrays, ultrasound, and abdominal CT scan, ruling out pancreatitis or splenic disease. Although you had a normal barium swallow, it is not completely sensitive in diagnosing ulcers.
Avatar n tn I also take Oxycontin sustained action with breakthrough pain medication for attack pain which has really helped my pain. I'm going to cut and paste from my previous post, I hope that's okay. I'm not a doctor and I know next to nothing about this stuff but you sound a lot like me. So many things could be causing your pain and nausea. Doing your own research can only help. Check out the "First Principles of Gastroenterology", http://gastroresource.com/GITextbook/en/Default.htm.
Avatar n tn The possible causes for the pain would depend on where it is. Upper abdominal pain can be caused by liver/gallbladder disease, GERD, or diseases on the upper digestive tract. Lower abdominal pain can be caused by inflammatory bowel disease, irritable bowel disease, a mass, diverticulitis, appendicitis etc. Depending on where the pain is, ensure that either an upper or lower endoscopy, as well as a CT scan and/or abdominal ultrasound is considered.
Avatar f tn Beside gastroparesis (which means slow gastric emptying) the cause of pain may be gastric ulcer. This can be diagnosed only by upper endoscopy.
Avatar n tn My doctor took chest x-rays, which showed no abnormality, and gave me anti-inflammatory medication. The pain persisted, so the doctor ultimately had me do an abdominal CAT scan, an MRI of the spine and a full body bone scan. Each test showed no abnormality. The doctor has determined that this must be a nerve based problem and would like for to utilize pain management services. I'm concerned that this could be a more serious problem perhaps with my lung.
Avatar n tn you are basically out of it and don't remember a thing. The pancreatitis is painful but the pain is about the same as the SOD (very painful). Of course if someone comes down with post-procedure pancreatitis, they give lots of pain meds to make you very comforable. From my last ERCP (3-04), I found out that the pressure in my pancreatic duct was 200 (normal reading is 40 or below). I also have celiac disease and have been on a gluten-free diet.
