1453931 tn?1285188953 Hi I am 19, I am being diagnosed with Chronic Pancreatitis, We have been waiting for a specialist to come to our Mayo hospital to do a EUS on me, which is scheduled for Friday. My GI is super confident in his diagnosis, and so are we this is really the only disease I match up to 100%. In my case this is a rare diagnosis because I am so young and obviously my lifestyle habits have not called this. I have been sick for almost 3 years now undiagnosed and miserable.
902019 tn?1249865014 I coasted along ok till last fall, symptoms started again and by xmas was in full AIP flareup. 6 wks of prednisone (starting at 40 mg, then weaning), and by mid March liver tests were elevated again so had to do 12 wks of prednisone. Just completed that in June and within 5 wks my LFTs were up again, no surprise, was feeling so rotten.
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 This is very frustrating since I know that there have had to be improvements and gains in the area of pancreatitis in the past 14 years! I just want to have the same chances that someone who has just been diagnosed with pancreatitis has now. I've been under maintainance medical care for the last 12 years, just treating the pain. I will investigate the autoimmune pancreatitis. I have an appointment on Jan 15th with a PA from the Dr's office I mentioned above.
Avatar n tn Hi everyone Do these symptoms sound like fibro? I had slight tingling in both feet for a couple of months along with some vibration. At the same time I had muscle twitches (like pop corn popping) with no pain. Before this I had chest pain and feeling like my heart was skipping beats. I went to the doctor and had an EKG. He said my heart looked fine from those results. He took blood and I have no thyriod issues or diabetes (although my mom has hypothryiod issues and a suspicion of fibro).
Avatar f tn The metabolism of aspartame in the human body and the proposed toxicities from its metabolic components have concerned a lot of people and have been the emphasis of many post-marketing surveillance studies. Aspartame is metabolized by digestive enzymes and peptides to three common dietary components: amino acids, aspartic acid, and phenylalanine. Minute amounts of methanol can also be detected.
Avatar f tn Get your kidney function, parathyroid gland function and adrenal function tests done because these affect the electrolyte balance in the body. Stress, alcohol, caffeine and fatigue all cause similar symptoms. Certain sleep disorders and peripheral nerve disorders due to diabetes or hypothyroidism can also be the cause. Hope this helps. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
719009 tn?1230319097 I belong to a Yahoo! group which deals with Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction, Pancreatitis and Undiagnosed Symptoms, among other things. If you want to let me know where you live (city/state only, please), I can ask the forum if they could recommend a doctor in your area. Here are a couple of things that I've found helpful (and I post them frequently): Research! Read old posts in this forum.
Avatar n tn I just got word that I won't get the referral because my primay care physican talked to the cardiologist on the phone and based upon the results of an echo and a holter done 5 months ago, before I had an escalation in the symptoms, they feel that every is just fine. As a matter of fact, the MD stated that this is to be expected in this stage of pregnancy. So, I've had more more more anything. I am screaming for help but no one will listen.
Avatar n tn I have had Crohn's for some 38 yrs, in both small intestine and colon, and currently have symptoms just like your wife's but also severe weight loss, some 14 lbs in past 4 weeks. I saw my gastro last week and he has ordered a CT scan of pelvis,abdomen,liver and pancreas, 26 June and an upper GI endoscopy under sedation 9th July. I was dx by MRI last Nov with 2 strictures in the small intestine, but was asymptomatic then. I suspect my problems are either pancreatitis or the narrowed strictures.
Avatar n tn I'm a pretty healthy 22 year old but for the past few years off and on I have experienced, painful burning in the vagina and urinary tract. I was treated for a yeast infection several times and it did not go away.
Avatar n tn as this can do permanent damage to the nerve cells in your central nervous system(brain and apinal cord), cardiopulmonary system and smooth muscle in your digestive tract( mainly the large intestine as these are the areas of the body where opiate receptors are widely spread. Tapering as slowly as possible will almost eliminate withdrawal symptoms. Once you stop taking them you will probably feel some withdrawal symptoms so always taper as slowly as possible toward the end. xoxo- D.
4198743 tn?1354253885 Just beginning my path of discovering what is going on with my body. I have a wonderful life, two children, a dog, a cat, and a very supportive group of people who are worried to death about my failing health. I am hoping to find an outlet and community here of understanding people who I can learn from and support in return.
Avatar n tn All symptoms of what I call the 'antibiotic syndrome' which have greatly increased in frequency in recent years. On further examination, more symptoms may be discovered. Most of the gastro-intestinal tract is tender when pressed, especially the small intestine, liver and gall bladder. There may even have been a gall bladder operation that failed to improve the condition, sometimes even worsening the symptoms. There could be a history of thrush or oral, anal or vaginal itching.
Avatar n tn This is the first Web site I've found where there are people with the same symptoms that I have. I am a 32 year old male who lives in Seattle, WA. I have Thalassemia minor and suffer mainly from ongoing fatigue. I am ALWAYS tired, no matter how well I eat or what vitamins I take. Doctors tell me that I'm fine and "just need to avoid Iron and do some aerobic exercise." I would exercise if I had the energy to. It's comforting to see postings from people all over the world.
Avatar n tn There are also cases of chronic pancreatitis that can lead to mucous-like substances in the stool. You can consider blood tests looking for pancreatitis or celiac disease. Stool samples can be obtained an analyzed for possible causes of malabsorption. If the symptoms continue, one can consider endoscopy for further evalation. This normally is done in conjunction with a pediatric gastroenterologist. You can discuss these options with your personal physician.
Avatar f tn I honestly feel I should report the hospital that sent me home to die in front of my children...I'm really not that type of person,but I kind of feel obligated to let people know that hospital is untrustworthy!!!
1560663 tn?1298050127 I also have a 10 year old cat who had exploratory surgery because she was vomiting. They thought it was Pancreatitis, then an x-ray and u/s showed a thickening in the colon so that is when we scheduled surgery. This is not Mega Colon but IBS, and I treat her with 1/8 tsp Miralax in her morning wet food and her evening wet food. She is on a diet pf Z/D prescription wet food and dry, and takes Budesonide (formulated as a liquid) every day.
Avatar n tn I can't believe how similar our symptoms/problems are. I had gallbladder surgery in mid-July. Ever since I have suffered from pain in my upper right quadrant which radiates through the center of my chest and up under my right shoulder blade. Within the last 3-4 weeks I have noticed that I also get stabbing pains in my left side (they last for a short period of time usually).
Avatar n tn My MD was at a total loss as to what caused my original pain which returned as soon as my pancreatitis pain resolved. I was lucky in that the pancreatitis that was due to the ERCP resolved quickly. Still and all I was out of work for 3 weeks. Tracie, I hope you are feeling better. When did you first realize that something was wrong? You went home after your ERCP, right? Did you end up admitted through the ER?
1916673 tn?1420236870 But definitely consider stopping the Rimadyl and Tramadol, as these will affect the kidneys and potentially make the pancreatitis worse. Okay. There are quite a few things in my message that you need to talk to your vet about, so I'll leave you with them for the time being. Please get back if you have questions and/or after you have spoken with your vet.
Avatar f tn Reading my journals for the last six weeks-will provide some of the highlights when I can, but now I just can't. Hopefully, this will help somone else recognize the symptoms of kidney failure in their babies. I cannot express to all of you how much your comments mean to us right now. Not sure we could make it without you. It is so hard.
6948829 tn?1386375323 Symptoms of overheating/sweating, rapid heart rate, extreme nausea, dry mouth, faintness/lightheadedness, diarrhea (voiding does not relieve symptoms, as in the past), last for approximately 2 hours and leave me unable to care for my children, aged 13 to 3. When they began 10 years ago, happened 4-5 times/year during celebratory dinners w/ alcohol. Now, several times/month, not always with alcohol. Please help, as symptoms render me unable to function.
1318483 tn?1318350782 I know very little about it Addi but from the little I know isn't it usually dx in children and young adults due to the forming of the brain? From what little I know too, it is something that can be readily seen on an MRI. So, I am thinking it's not what you have since you have had MRI's w/none of this seen. As for your daugther, I am sorry, I don't know what the future holds but seems to me that dx is at least the first big step (you know how big a piece that is).
Avatar n tn I saw my regular doctor Monday and she discussed my case with her GI friend at the PolyClinic here in Seattle. After reviewing recent blood work and her relaying my symptoms to him, he thinks it is a Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction, considering my gallbladder is gone. This dysfunction can lead to attacks of the pancreas! There is an invasive surgery they can do to MAYBE relieve the problem, but I'm told it's a bad diagnosis and a bad surgery.
Avatar f tn It's therefore worth getting things under control as much as possible, as this will help reduce the symptoms. SubQ fluids are useful in helping get the blood levels under control, so I would try to keep going with it, at least for the time being. The blood test results will tell you whether it remains necessary. SubQ fluids also help deal with any dehydration, which is very common in kidney failure dogs and causes lots of problems - and can even by life threatening if not dealt with.
