Pancreatitis pain nausea

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis pain nausea


Avatar n tn Weight loss is frequent. The nausea, pain and vomiting often follows a meal of some sort, and can be triggered more severely by foods heavy in fats. 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.
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 There is a distinct possibility that this could be pancreatitis again, based on your previous history. After having it once, some people seem to be more prone to having repeated attacks, and then often they develop chronic pancreatitis as a result. And yes, it can just come out of the blue like that, but it's more likely that SOMETHING triggered this episode, you just haven't been able to identify what it is. The pain does radiate to the back with an attack.
Avatar n tn If you had Pancreatitis you would know it! The pain is normally starts out on your RIGHT side underneath your ribcage. Eventually the pain will shoot through the middle of your stomach and to your back. It is the most god awful pain you will ever experience in your life. In my opinion it was worse than any labor pains I ever experience. Read down farther in this forum. TazLady has posted many things in regards to Pancreatitis as well as Concerned Lady.
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.
Avatar f tn The thing that is hard with it is, which you have experienced, your scans can look normal and blood tests also and you still have pain,nausea, fatigue and the whole pancreatitis everything! The ER will not do anything about this because nothing is showing up on any of your tests and according to the its not an "emergency" so get to a GI fast! chronic pancreatitis is hard to diagnose so hang in there!
Avatar m tn i am a 27 yr old female, with more pancreatitis attacks then i can count in the last year and a half. ive been accused of a frivilious life style which is so far from the truth. ive had every test known for this condition. in the last 2 months i was put on a protien suppliment to replace my emzymes that my pancreas produces. in the first 2 wks i lost 20 lbs, had no appetite, liquid bowel movements, dizziness, fatique, discoloring of the skin,and more symptoms i can even list.
Avatar m tn When the twitching happens I can feel it externally when I touch the area. I've never had the severe pain or nausea/vomiting, and no swelling or pain to the touch. I've got a pre-scheduled appointment with a gp on Wednesday. Are there any specific questions I should ask?
Avatar n tn 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. She has tried going without milk for 4-5 days and without wheat for about a week. She was tested for food allergies also, which came back negative. The most pain she has is in her abdomen area, running horizontally from side to side and it is tender to press on.
Avatar n tn Oh well, at least one bad habit bit the dust. I do find that the pain I have is worse after I eat. I do find that Coke helps control the nausea some. I have always drank a lot of water, but I have to be careful now because when I drink large amounts it comes back up and along with it comes the bitter bile junk (for lack of better word to call it).

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 was diagnosed with gastritis and IBS and was basically told there was nothing else to be done. BUT, upon a big attack (EXTREME pain and nausea) I went to the Urgent Care Center and the doctor there spotted it and I was sent the next day to a gastro doctor who did the ERCP. DON'T give up! KEEP PURSUING your symptoms!! This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/232980'>6 years of Pain</a>.
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.
436191 tn?1256649906 Does anyone have any insight regarding persistently elevated pancreatic enzymes (Amalyse and Lipase)? About a month ago I began having pain (ribs/abdomen/back) along with nausea. Thinking it might be gallbladder bloodwork was done, and the pancreatic enzymes were elevated (about a week after the onset when things were a bit better). They have never gotten better (they are mildy elevated but defintiley abnormal). I continue to have severe belly pain - rib soreness/burning...
Avatar n tn It takes time for the pancreas to settle down after an acute attack, so the usual treatment is to avoid alcohol and rich fatty foods while treating the pain and nausea with medication. You're so young that you will very likely recover just fine as long as you mind what you put in your mouth and let your pancreas rest and heal. It's not going to happen overnight though.
665361 tn?1225276972 burping, right-sided discomfort, discomfort between where your ribs meet at the bottom of the rib cage and any changes in bowel habits or nausea. The other thing you want to do is find out if the pancreatitis could be due to an auto-immune issue.
Avatar n tn He told due to his history chronic pancreatitis was possible and was given enzyme supllemnts which do not help the pain. Ive read chronic pancreatitis might not show up in these imaging tests but the severe weight loss and pain are continuing. Please keep me updated on ure condition since it sounds quite similar to my dads.
Avatar m tn What makes me now wonder about chronic pancreatitis is that in the weeks following the disappearance of the rash the back pain has been joined by a pain in the pit of my gut or just below the rib cage at the upper stomach after eating a bigger meal or at night. Again, it is not debilitating but usually takes an hour or so to subside. I'm not a big drinker, and in fact have had no alcohol (or any other vice) for probably 5 months in effort to lose weight.
Avatar n tn The dog is given IV hydration and nutrition, nausea and pain control, and then you wait it out. Is she eating anything at all? I hope your vet explained that avoiding fats is very important right now - and in the future. What did your vet determine to be the cause of the attack? Did your dog get into some fatty human food, or is something more ominous like cancer going on? Was an ultrasound done?
Avatar n tn Follow your diet, stay away from alcohol and see your specialist often. Alot of what you mentioned sounds familar to Pancreatitis. The diareha, the continuous pain, the off colored stools. You are probably experiencing fatigue, mood swings, depression and/or extreme tiredness. My specialist told me it's exhausting being this sick and he is right. With your families help, you will be better in the future than you are today.
Avatar n tn My dog had acute pancreatitis over the weekend and I took him to an emergency vet on Sunday and to his vet on Mon. They both kept him overnight, IV, blood work, meds, and his vet did a rectal x-ray and abdominal x-ray with barium to look for obstruction. He found dirt/sand. My dog ate cat poop covered in dirt. He is at home now doing fine and I have him on a bland diet of canned white chicken and brown rice only. However, his lower abd/belly is a little distended and hard.
Avatar f tn I am now 61 years old and have chronic pancreatitis, fibromyalgia, IBS, GERD, asthma and problems with both the back and hips. I have had numerous surgeries due to the pancreas and liver. I have been on very strong meds for several years. Recently I was in a really bad situation partly due to my insurance company. I take opiate meds for pain. The last year and 1/2 that included Methadone and Fentanyl lollipops as well as other meds for nausea etc.
Avatar f tn Looking horrible he aged about 10 years just in 3 weeks which started with and emergency room visit for horrible pain about a month before. Then back into the emergency room a few days later as no one could bother to see him any sooner then a month later of the first visit to the hospital. The 2nd time the emergency room had the gastro doc look at the ct scan and the doc wanted to see him right away and the ER was told to admit him.
Avatar m tn I have trouble sitting up for more than 30min at a time! Because of pain and nausea, I even have trouble walking upright! If you have CP taking out the gal bladder, doesnt cure your CP......why cant you sit up, is it because of pain also?
Avatar f tn sir , a 26 yr old ante natal (G2 P2 L1) was admitted with term for stomach pain nausea,vomiting on the day of admission.her pain was relieved only by pethidine inj.the very same day she delivered a live male baby.through normal vaginal delivery,baby is fine.this is her third day of admission.still she complains of epigastric pain. PRE DELIVERY investigastion done showed increased CRP,SERUM AMYLASE AND LIPASE,TRIGLYCERIDES.
Avatar m tn Went to ER on Monday 24th, she was admitted because of nausea, pain in the upper right quadrant, had not eaten, and lipase and amylase were in the 200s. She was discharged yesterday. No scan was performed during her stay. An ultrasound was performed in ER which showed to abnormalities and no inflammation of the pancreas. Questions about possible bile leak or the stent creating a problem were dismissed. I am afraid she is not able to eat because her enzymes become elevated.
Avatar f tn I have a significant amount of pain daily, quite a bit of nausea, and my energy is non existant, but the baby is healthy and developing just fine. I have had a little more frequent, and earlier sqreening (especially for gestational diabetes) than the average pregnant woman, but all that matters is that the baby is healthy and we are both safe. I would not take getting pregnant lightly, but talk to the doctors and I bet they would be willing to try.
