Avatar n tn Along with this, you are being given medications to control gastritis. Along with these a few lifestyle changes may help you to feel better. Life style changes that may help include: Drink cold milk at night or take a late night snack. Avoid heavy meals and eat frequent small meals. Avoid too much of caffeine, tea, smoking, fried food and drinks both alcoholic and non alcoholic fuzzy ones. Avoid heavy exercises within 4 hours of a heavy meal.

Avatar n tn I had to put my 11 year old Llhasa apso to sleep yesterday because he was diagnosed with pancreatitis and was in so much pain that they could not guarantee that he would survive even with treatment. It came on suddenly...he was fine Saturday but began throwing up in the middle of the night and continued...he couldn't even hold down water and was very weak. I took him into the veterinary hospital on Sunday and he was too weak to come home.
Avatar n tn Would pain due to pancreatitis be disabling in most cases? I am having post gallbladder removal problems, and I am concerned that my pain is due to pancreatitis? Had my surgery in June with a lot of problems afterwards. At one point I was diagnosed with a bile leak, and given antibiotics. After that I felt pretty good for several months, but now the pain has started again. I have a lot of pressure under my ribs, both sides. Stomach area is burning.
1985662 tn?1327527494 Hi, How are you? Chronic pancreatitis or inflammation of the pancreas that does not improve and gets worse over time usually presents with abdominal pain that may last from hours to days and eventually may be continuous. Pain medications, limiting pancreas activity through stopping food or fluid by mouth. Drinking plenty of liquids and eating a low-fat diet as well as eating small, frequent meals may help. Limiting caffeine and avoiding alcohol may also be done.
Avatar n tn Dear Kerrie, Pamcreatitis canbe one of the complications of lupus- either a direct result of the vasculitis or an adverse effect of the medications that you take, It is always necessary to exclude gallstone-induced pancreatitis because stones can cause a more severe pancreatitis as well as cholangitis (inflammation of the bile duct). Pnacreatiti susually presents with sharp painin th ecenter of the abomen near the ribs. The pain may go straiught through to the back.
Avatar n tn I recently was treated for acute pancreatitis. Could any of the medications that I am taking be a cause of it? They are: Remeron, Clonazepam, Levoxyl, Westhroid, T-3 S/R, Estradiol, Gabitril, Mestinon, Valtrex, Plavix, Zanaflex, DHEA, Oxycontin, Amoxicillin, Progesterone, Provigil. I have Lyme Disease (Babesiosis) and also have been diagnosed with: HSV-1, HSV-2, CMV, HHV-6, HHV-7, HHV-8, Rubella, Toxoplasmosis, Campylobactor Jejuni, Candida Albicans, Bartonella Henselae, Bartonella Quintana.
Avatar f tn Asacol is really a very old drug and there are so many newer alternatives on the market now that could help you. I have had Crohn's for 38 years and have never heard of "pain in the rectum and lower left side" being caused by scar tissue. If this was the case I would be in constant agony with all the flares and severe rectal haemorrhages I have had in the past.
Avatar n tn Please do not self medicate. Sometimes oral medications do not help and you need intravenous fluids and medications to overcome the acute attack. Consult a doctor to assess your current status. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
Avatar n tn the mortality rate is around 5-7 years after diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis. you do take enzymes oraly to help you digest food?,,this is a must and will help the pancreas be able to relax. check into the miopathy procedures where they take healthy pancreas cells,and transplant them into the bad areas. its a tricky thing this pancreatits,but you got to keep on trying.
Avatar n tn I need to know the cause of acute pancreatitis, treatment, proper medications for this problem, and if there is any type of surgery that would prevent this. I do not have a stone, so that was ruled out. I am desperate! Recently, I had pancreatitis for the eleventh time in about six years. Each time it seems worse. Please help me. Thank you.
Avatar f tn During normal digestion, the inactivated pancreatic enzymes move through ducts in your pancreas and travel to the small intestine, where the enzymes become activated and help with digestion. In pancreatitis, the enzymes become activated while still in the pancreas. This causes the enzymes to irritate the cells of your pancreas, causing inflammation and the signs and symptoms associated with pancreatitis.
6472661 tn?1381772732 It is managed with fluids, antibiotics, anti-emetic (anti nausea/vomiting medications) and pain medications. I did not personally examine your dog, but it sounds very much like pancreatitis. It may take a while for her to overcome this and she can have relapses in the future. I don't think there is anything wrong with getting a second vet's opinion if you are concerned, but it is not a condition that is gone in a matter of 2-3 days. Good luck!
Avatar n tn I have recently (finally) been diagnosed with Chronic Pancreatitis. The diagnosis was not made until I underwent a secretin (spelling?) test in March. At that time I was told that my bicarbonate level was within normal range, but that the amount digestive enzymes I produce is well below the normal range. Unfortunately I cannot remember the amount I was told and I have not actually seen the doctor since I had the test done. I don't go back to see him until 6/17.
Avatar n tn The liver has remarkable regenerating power, and should regenerate (though slowly) through this episode. It may help for you to give Piper some liver support medications and supplements such as Denosyl, milk thistle, alpha-lipoic acid, burdock and dandelion root. For a dog her size you would use 1/6 a human dose, as listed on the bottle. The supplements are available at health food stores if not available at your vets. Denosyl is available by prescription.
Avatar n tn I am on creon daily and on pain medications to help with the pain... I want all of the information I can get on this before I agree to have it removed. Anything you can tell me, would be appreciated it!
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 m tn I also got a call from the clinic saying the H pylori test got screwed up and I would have to do another (which I still havn't done due to the pancreatitis diagnoses) In emergency I got my vitals checked they were all normal. I got a blood test done again and everything was normal other than my lipase which had gone down to 200 u/l overnight. They let me go in a reasonable amount of time, no IV, and sent me home with some pain killers and told me to liquid diet for a few days.
Avatar f tn Typically a low fat and low carbohydrate diet is advised following an episode of pancreatitis along with medications that would help in digestion and symptomatic pain relief. I would suggest consulting your treating gastroenterologist for a review/ evaluation and suggestion of an appropriate management plan. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar f tn Thanks. Now for tonight hes acting like he has to pee but very little comes out. Not sure if its a side effect of the pepsid?
1168110 tn?1272685917 I have had an ultrasound done on the thyroid, and I was told it is multi-nodule. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated.... Once I get the TSH level down, I can get the surgery, and hopefully stop this awful burning post nasal drip, and maybe the seering pain in my neck will finally go away... Thanks for listening, hope to hear back shortly...
407651 tn?1224193495 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.and these were the drugs that the dr was saying they can use to help however i am worried a to the effect they have on my kidneys and wondered if anyone has any advice.
793908 tn?1294708709 But if, in the future, the pain gets to the point at which no medications help, and there is obviously ONLY pain, and no enjoyment any more, then you would find it easier to release your lovely girl from this World and its suffering. Yes, I do know how to, because I've had to do it before. But I know that will not help me when it comes Misty's time to leave this World. That'll be a whole new ball-game. I know. Never mind. Your Julie is alive now. That's what counts for now.
Avatar n tn Does SOD always result in pancreatitis? How does it lead to pancreatitis in the first place? Is SOD curable? Is it progressive? My GI doctor thinks that I have a SO stenosis. I am so fearful that I'm going to experience this pain indefinately, and moreso, that I will develop pancreatitis and die. I feel too young to be combating something of this nature. What is the prognosis for SOD, and how can I ensure that I am receiving the most appropriate and proactive care? Can you hear the fear? Help!
Avatar f tn Last week, my 8 year old Siberian Husky went down with acute pancreatitis, which was probably triggered by gorging on dog food. (he got into the canister of food) He came home on Thursday, and on Friday appeared to be on track, but my dog sitter had trouble administering his antibiotic and pain meds. By the time I got home on Sunday he was lethargic and totally off his food.
Avatar f tn After two days i was told last night her kidney is at 7, i cant remember what her BUN was or any other number because at that point i was told she now has pancreatitis and her liver is going bad as well. They are releasing her today with me and told me to take her home, make her comfortable at home and she can either pass on her own or i can bring her in after a few days to be put down. I am having a hard time with this whole thing and felt it came on quickly.
Avatar f tn Hello, I am not sure if I can help you but it DOES sound like pancreatitis. Did they check you for gallstones or any blockages in your bile ducts? How about your Liver? Did they do any blood tests on it at the time you went to the ER? Have you tried going to different ERs? Maybe a different one will see you right away and test you correctly. I had my gallbladder removed last year, but before that, I had the same pains.
Avatar n tn Any help in identifing what might be causing my husband to have the following problems would be greatly appreciated! He presented to the ER on Sept 15th with severe epigastric pain. Lipase was 11,000 & amylase was 5,331, liver enzymes normal, glucose normal, and triglycerides normal, Other abnormal labs included RBC 3.96(L), HGB 12.0(L), HCT 34.7(L), lymphs 15.1(L), ABS monocyte 0.6(H). He was admitted with acute pancreatis. Put NPO/given IV's and pain meds and sent home in 4 days.
Avatar f tn I am sure it is like an upper endoscopy with an ultra sound attachment. When they do an EUS is there any chance the test could cause pancreatitis like an ERCP. ERCP's can be very tricky and my doctor doesn't want to even go there if she doesn't have to. I can tell you that I have normal liver enzymes, normal mri of the abdomen, and two Ct scans that showed possible inflammation of the pancreatic head. I was told that Ct scans were probably a normal variant.
