Pancreatitis symptoms bloating

Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis symptoms bloating


Avatar m tn I thought symptom was for early pancreatitis, but no typical symptoms for that other than the bloating and back pain. I do not see any other cause of back pain associated with bloating in all my research. Bloating (without gas) associated with back pain is an odd combination of symptoms. I am now starting to take ibuprofen for the pain. (I am 68 years old.) Any help on this please? I am at a loss. Thanks, WillPower PS: High to all my Hep C friends of the past!
Avatar f tn Last year was diagnosed with pancreatitis. Am again suffering from similiar symptoms. Hospital told me not to eat till I saw family doctor. He told me not to eat for 3 days, drink water only. Symptoms got better starting eating carbs after that. 8months later and similiar symptoms, fatigue, bloating. Shall I assume the liquid diet for a few days? Not sure what the doctor or hospital will do other than tell me that and don't want to waste 12 hours in the ER again, let alone the cost.
Avatar n tn I have severe bloating after eating too (as well as many other symptoms) and was just diagnosed with gastroparesis. Has he had a gastric emptying study done? Or gallbladder HIDA scan to check for GB disease?
658828 tn?1225046595 I have been reading online and think I may have Pancreatitis? Are these symptoms consistent with Pancreatitis? I also have read about Fibromyalgia as well b/c these autoimmune diseases seem to occur together, but I just cant get myself to think that this is just a muscoskeletal pain problem especially since its mainly in the area where my kidneys are located. I have an appt with a GI dr next week so I am hoping i can get some answers.
Avatar n tn I know this is an old post & response, but thought this might be helpful others who see this. I, too had symptoms of abdominal bloating & pain (especially in the evenings), and bowel changes (diarrhea & loose stools). Had bloodwork which showed slightly elevated lipase but all else normal.
Avatar f tn Carries diagnosis of IBS, GERD, Non-Allergic Rhinitis. Has history of pancreatitis. Is on special diet. Bloating unresolved for 6 months. Welcome any ideas. Thank you.
Avatar n tn I also have bloating and major pain when I eat. My abdomen gets hard and feels very extended. The pain is now going up my shoulder blade and into my hip. Can you tell me if I should worry about having chronic pancreatits or pancreatic cancer?
Avatar m tn I was experiencing about a 50% reduction in my symptoms until day 6 post surgery. I had a normal lunch that day, and bam, all my symptoms returned (bloating, swollen feeling on my right side, stinging sensation internally) even worse than before the procedure. Had blood drawn a few days ago, and still have high pancreatic enzymes present. My GI docs nurse says I have a mild form of pancreatitus, and to go on a liquid diet until my GI appointment in 6 days.
1240683 tn?1268232755 Hi, I've been having lots of IBS like symptoms for the last 6 months. (Nausea, bloating, belching, constipation/diarrhea, clay colored stools, and floating stools). Some other symptoms that are seemingly unrelated are widespread tendonitis, daily headaches, and fatigue). The most bothersome symptom is the fatigue. I've had lots of tests, and the gallbladder was removed in Feb, but it didn't help.
Avatar f tn Now have less diarrhea and bloating symptoms- but have right upper quadrant pain- dull, aching, radiates to back. Normal ultrasound of the area makes my gastroenterologist think it is a combo of a muscle strain and IBS. Do think it’s worse after having a glass of wine (1-2 times a week). Could this be a sign of something more serious? I think I had a similar issue years ago. Thank you for any input!
Avatar m tn Although colonoscopy and endoscopy and CT scans are good to look at reasons for these symptoms, you should ask your doctor about the possibility that this is related to migraine headaches which can lead to these symptoms as well.
Avatar f tn I've been having a lot of bloating, burning in my upper abdomen... Nausea and back pain I lost 15 lbs in the last 4 months without trying and I wake up sweaty. I've had my gallbladder removed in 2006, a ectopic pregnancy, then a hysterectomy (which they found endometriosis) , gastric bypass (2014)then had pancreatitis a month after that surgery.
Avatar n tn Pressure and bloating may be still from pancreatitis not healed completely. Bloating may also be from several other reasons.
Avatar f tn ve ever had is a (drum roll please)...................CRAMP????? Hahahahaha, dipshit! All my symptoms point to Pancreatitis. I am going to my regular GI Doc on Tues, excited to maybe get some answers. I also "googled" the results of my Transvaginal Ultrasound, ha! I seem to have a "Complex" cyst on my left ovary. Those are the kind that have to be evaluated right away and removed, they are not good!
611067 tn?1458591483 I saw my gastro doctor and he says that he does NOT think I have chronic pancreatitis like my family doctor thought. He said that my lipace levels were not high enough and that the pain and bloating does not indicate that, plus the MRI shows that everything in that region looks good. He thinks that maybe there is something wrong near the connection sites from my gastric bypass. So, he has me scheduled for an endoscope on Nov. 11th.
Avatar n tn if the culprit is the pancreas,at least thats how pancreatitis usualy presents itslef,,,,i have seen people with pancreatitis have no elevated amalayes/lipase at all,untill they had an attack,,,and they returned right after it was over,,,so constant elevated levels could be more then just pancreas issues.
Avatar f tn Do you fell constant discomfort in chest at night? If yes, doctor should carefully listen your lungs. It's rare but it can be spontaneous pneumothorax. Or it is all from constipation and bloating - if this is tzhe case, then avoid sugary foods and fibers (sugary fruits, like watermelon, beans and so...) Pancreatitis may occur at any age, e.g. from a gallstone which blocks pancreatic duct. First investigation is by ultrasound.
Avatar n tn However, I think something is going in my lower stomach area since I always feel discomfort and bloating in that area. What can I do to help rid myself of these symptoms. I just want to have one day where I am not aware of my indisgestio/stomach problems.
Avatar m tn Anna, these were my symptoms when i first was in the hospt. w/ my pancreatitis, i had high Amalyse and Lipase levels and dull aching pain in my mid to left abdomen(for a week).., and since then my stools have been abnormal, I also have lost about 15 pounds, and i indeed have had a stool test for fat and mine came back negative. Thanks for sharing your story anna, hope your test comes back okay I just would like Dr. Rogue to give his opinion on what he thinks is wrong with me.
Avatar f tn I started having pretty severe mid to upper back pain (above bra line) days ago. I first thought I hurt my back But now I e noticed bloating and burning abdominal pain. I have been very stressed so I wasn’t sure if I could have aggravated gallbladder, caused ulcer or could be pancreatitis. Normal stools and no nausea however.
429032 tn?1220444889 First, the docs told him he had pancreatitis. Then one doc tried to tell him he had c-diff, which turned out neg. He has had numerous CT Scans, ultrasounds, x-rays, blood work, and an ERCP. They are all turning out negative, which is starting to get aggravating. His s/s are LUQ pain that is constant w/periods of sharp stabbing pain; bloating/fullness; diarrhea @ times. He takes Nexium everyday. He has been taking Darvocets for over 3 weeks almost daily due to the pain.
656452 tn?1332783935 s no question/doubt in my mind. The past 10 days I have had terrible bloating / fullness feeling under my right rib cage that feels like gas/fullness is lodged under the right rib cage and no place else. Lots of indigestion/burping. Having had full-blown gallbladder attacks in the past, I think this is my GB not working properly, but not sure and keeping an eye on things. No pain. just discomfort from the "fullness" feeling.
Avatar f tn PE last May, unknown cause, became anemic from taking xarelto (uterine bleed) and in the last 4 months have developed terrible GI distress including constant diarrhea, gas, bloating, nausea and abdominal pain. I have lost 35 pounds in 3 months. I have had an endoscopy, colonoscopy both negative, CT of my ABD/Pelvis also negative, celiac testing, answers. Recently I had an ultrasound and was told I have an abnormally dilated pancreatic duct.
