Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis pain like


Avatar n tn Cessation of alcohol intake is imperative, particularly if this is the underlying etiology of pancreatitis. Abstinence does not always lead to symptomatic improvement; however, patients with alcohol-induced chronic pancreatitis who continue to drink have increased mortality.
229538 tn?1300381367 sounds like pancreatitis is quite painful and its a good idea to use pain control to promote healing. for long term pain control the most recommended opiate is BUPRENEX or TRAMADOL for cats. good pain control would also make her feel more like eating, but on the other hand loss of appetite can be a side effect of some of the need good Vet advice there. Are you assist feeding her? If she is not eating well, hepatic lipidosis is a very serious worry.
Avatar n tn I have to be careful when I stretch - seems like it intensifies the pain. Feels like it lengthens it out - if that makes any sense (kind of like stretching an elastic or gum). I'll be interested to see what other responses come back.
Avatar n tn Sometimes my ribs and side is tender to touch and I get gas and discomfort as well as low back ache. I had one bad lot of pain one night that I thought might be pancreatitis but nothing since and I carried on drinking heavily (I had a drink problem but have stopped now) for several months after and no more attacks. I am wondering whether mine is pancreatitis so let me know if you find out.. don't know of anyone else having it in left hip though. I wouldn't worry about cancer ...
Avatar n tn The pain feels like I have been running and got a side ache almost under my breast. My doctor has not suggested this, he is trying to ignore my symptoms for some reason. He found a small liver cyst, 2 weeks ago and then sent me for blood work. When he called for the results of my bloodwork he said to me "basically your bloodwork is normal" I'm going to call it normal. Then he said he wanted to see me in six months for another ultrasound of liver.
Avatar n tn Often there is pain in the abdomen and between the ribs at the base of the sternum. Pain that radiates to the back is also common with pancreatitis. There are several ways to test for pancreatitis and to reach a diagnosis of either acute or chronic pancreatitis or both. Bloodwork can be checked to look at amylase and lipase levels, if they are elevated it is a sign of pancreatic inflamation, yet some people who have had the disease for a while no longer show elevated a&p levels.
Avatar f tn I've had CT Scan, small bowel series, and EGD. All normal. Now I'm having pain in my lower abdomin mostly right side with groin pain sometimes. Also have upper left abd. pain rad. to my back. Maybe something to do with my pancreas. Anyway, I've talked to some friends at work and they said the swelling could be due to a hernia. I can't tell if I have one because my stomach is so swelled up. So I have a referral to a surgeon to see if he can find out what is going on.
Avatar n tn Since Friday I continue to get nausiated after eating ANYTHING and continually have a nagging pain in my upper right side which gets worse after I eat. The pain shoots through to my back. The only time I remember having pains like this was when I was hospitalized with Pancreatitis after having an ERCP done last November. I went to my primary care physician yesterday. He seems to think that it might be pancreatitis and that I should go back to my gastrointerologist.
Avatar f tn I have the same pain it sounds like that ya'll have had. I had my gallbladder out in 1998 and have IBS and hyatial hernia and acid reflux. Now I am having to deal with this. I am also told that I am going to have to get the ERCP done because gallstones may be creating the problem. Also a big thing! CT Scans and MRI's do Not always show stones.Matter of fact they miss them more often than not. So when the Dr. wants to do the ERCP then they can determine wether it is stones or not.
Avatar m tn Also I would like to add that when I am starving, I mean really hungry, I feel no discomfort. I was also tested for h pylori which was negative. I must add also I drink a ton of diet soda daily, which i am working on stopping that habit. I don't smoke or drink alcohol. sorry for the rant I am just worried.
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 Does the duct dilatation set off an inflamation of the liver and pancreas and cause the pancreatitis pain? Also can the duct dilatation heal on its own in time? I have no desire to undergo an ERCP as I've heard such nightmare stories from people who have undergone but yet I'm so tired of not feeling good and having pain and just would like to feel good again. Thanks for your help.
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 f tn Fluid therapy, regular blood work (sometimes several times a day), pain meds or a patch for pain and antibiotics are often used. This is a very painful condition. In pancreatitis, nutrients the dog needs are passed out in the feces, thus probably the reason for the weight loss (and that is quite a bit). Has he been checked for diabetes?
719251 tn?1230344505 My mother has been suffering from Pancreatitis for the past 4months. She has been in hospital three times with severe pain, vomitting, and fluid in the abdominal. In that time she has lots over 25kg. She is 60 years old but since loosing so much weight she looks like 80 years old. She no longer drinks but continues to smoke. What worries me the most is that she eats very tiny amount of food, she vomitts everyday and she is just not getting any better.
Avatar n tn My 7 year old champion 4-H obedience/Showmanship female schnauzer was recently and unexpectedly diagnosed with pancreatitis. Her Lipase levels reflected 6000. Three days later her levels dropped to 5000, by the 5th day they jumped to almost 8000. After a long talk with the Vet, I elected to bring her home if she was able to hold food down. Despite the high lipase level, the dog was perkier and feeling better, we were risking her survival, but it was chance it or euthanize the dog.
Avatar m tn its bad when i am happy my emzyme count is high it shows im not lying. ive been accused by doctors i like being drugged only when i go in for the pain management...its very frustrating.ive never had my gall bladder removed but once was said it might help. i recently had an ercp test done after countless begging from my numerous doctors and am in more pain now then before. is there any advice for all this and more??
Avatar m tn But the pain continues. Gets worse as the day goes on and if I eat. Pain started in the middle and goes through right upper to the right flank and back right at the same level. I have base pain daily but have had flare ups of horrible pain at least 1-2 times a week. Dr (GI) does not know what to think... Really, he doesn't. Feels swollen some times and can't lay on right side. Touching it doesn't make it worse. I used to be a heavy drinker..
Avatar m tn That discomfort could also be related to gastritis, too. The best thing to do would be to check with your doctor and have some tests run. Also check any medications you're taking - prescription and non-prescription alike - to see if they could cause stomach issues.
Avatar n tn However, over the last couple of weeks, I have had a recurring pain which is reminiscent of the pain I suffered with the pancreatitis - although a lot milder in its form. It's a sort of crampy, central pain which feels like it's more in my chest than anywhere (sort of around and behind my boobs is the best, but crude, explanation!). It feels as if it's radiating down into my shoulders sometimes too. This is exactly where the pain of the pancreatitis was.
Avatar n tn Hi, My daughter, age 14 1/2 at the time, came down with pancreatitis this past July. It was acute, and painful but her amalase and lypase levels were not extremely high. Nevertheless, she was hospitalized for 4 days on IV until her levels returned to normal. They said they didn't know how she got it. Ever since the pancreatitis she has been in pain just about every day (and missing quite a bit of school). It doesn't seem to make a difference as to the types of food she eats.
Avatar f tn hi i have been having pain under my mid rib cage for almost all my life around 20 years ago i went to the er for the pain xrays showed my gall bladder was enlarged they admitted me that night and removed it the next morning the doctor said it was badly diseased but i still continued to have the pain my stomach doctor said i have barretts esphogus and did a nissen wrap to avoid cancer it failed and i had to have another that also failed so the third surgery was a bad one they had to remove half m
Avatar n tn The next day she was using her leg again, but was having very obvious abdominal pain. She's all roach backed now...Like something is terribly wrong in her abdomen...She's in HORRIFIC pain..She's been to 3 vets in the last 10 days...No one can tell me what's wrong with my baby.. Complete bloodwork, xrays, urinalisis...There's nothing there...And yet right now, she's laying on her side whimpering with every breath..:-( She's in such horrible pain.. My funds are depleted...
Avatar n tn This is not a question, but may be a helpful lead to those who are experiencing symptoms that sound like pancreatitis or at least, trouble with the pancreas. From my experience, doctors tend to dismiss looking further into problems with the pancreas. I'm unsure WHY. I was told that a CAT scan would find my problem, but it did not. Only when I was referred to a gastro doctor and he did an ERCP, was the problem with the pancreas found.
436191 tn?1256649906 Have you ruled out issues relating to disc problems in the neck or muscle problems in the shoulder/torso? I would imagine you had gi pain and symptoms like nausea/bloating/constipation etc. The Sphincter o f Oddi conditon is tricky to diagnose. If you take a smooth muslce relaxant it may give you some indication if that it the issue. Also - be very careful with narcotic meds (percocet etc.) as they cause the sphincter to spasm and can even be the cause of SOD!
Avatar n tn I have been suffering from pain attacks for about 2 years. I had a pain attack in January 08 and then the pain stayed around for ages, I went to my GP after a week of the pain and he said I was jaundice and suspected gallstones, he referred me to a jaundice clinic and a week later i was still in pain and hadn't heard anything off of the clinic. I went to the hospital and they said i have pancreatitis caused by a gall stone blocking me.
Avatar n tn Well I'll try to explain to you what i typically go thru. Seems like my pancreas pain and pancreatitis pain are kinda seperate. they seem to have different symptoms but as the same,,,if you understand what im trying to say. my stomach stays sore between my ribs right in the center, it's sore to the touch, my bach ached right up the center and it usually hurts in the left shoulder blade, kinda feels like a burning stabbing pain. it hurts under my left rib cage more like a aching burning pain.
Avatar n tn I posted couple of weeks ago . I went to the Er on 3-11 & was admitted for 4 days for pancreatits with mildly elevated Lipase (28) & a -sudden- severe pain in upper right quadrant(close to breastbone) that went straight thru to the back that was excruciating after eating that night. I also have ongoing pain in my back and a 'shooting & spasiming pain ' thats tolerable for now directly in my left ribs.
Avatar m tn While carprofen IS an anti-inflammatory, I would think that a drug like Tramadol would actually work better on the kind of pain caused by pancreatitis. The pain associated with this is actually quite severe and treating it with carprofen would more or less be like expecting a patient who just had abdominal surgery to be able to take Tylenol or Advil for post-surgical pain. Tramadol is stronger and much better equipped to handle the kind of pain produced by pancreatitis.
