Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis symptoms blood pressure


Avatar n tn So if anyone knows anything about pancreatitis or that has had it, could you please tell me what your symptoms are.
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.
Avatar n tn This is suppossed to be one of the symptoms of pancreatitis, but I have not idea what that would look like. Mine is floating most of the time. I am also constipated most of the time. I thought diarreha would be more of a symptom for pancreatitis? I'm going back to the dr. next week, but was hoping to get some ideas of what might be going on.
Avatar n tn He is a thin man, who is found wincing and clutching his abdomen. His temperature is 38O C Blood pressure 100/60 mmHg Pulse 90 beats per minute Respirations 19 per minute His abdomen is flat and the bowel sounds are hypoactive. There is marked tenderness with guarding in the midepigastrium, but no peritoneal signs. I suspect ACUTE PANCREATITIS based on both the symptoms and the physical examination. To test this I would check his serum for amylase. Does that sound right?
Avatar n tn I don't like going to the doctor either. I had a battery of tests done for low blood pressure...they couldn't find the cause.. less than 80 over 30...and that was when I was feeling better. They did all kinds of test...and nothing indicated why.
Avatar n tn (We manage it very well with diet and Vetsulin but it takes dedication, a rigid feeding schedule and 2 shots a day.) Keep an eye out for the symptoms once your pal is well. Early symptoms include increased drinking, iurinating more (accidents may be a sign), weight loss, increased appetite, dehydration and sudden cataract formation.
Avatar n tn I can't control my blood sugars, i usually get really bloated and my stomach swells i have trouble with my bowls, get really tired and fatigued, headaches and my blood pressure goes up and down. I know your daughter wont' go thru some of the same things but just keep in mind if she starts to develope other symptoms it may all be related in some way. Best wishes please keep in touch and let me know how she's doing and ill say a prayer for her everyday .
Avatar n tn A serum creatinine and creatinine clearance test should be done to rule out kidney involvement and a blood sugar for diabetes. However it could also be recurrent pancreatitis and pain of colitis too that has become dull aching type. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Avatar n tn Feel free to post again if you have any more questions. What are the symptoms of chronic pancreatitis? The symptoms are very variable. Pain occurs in most patients at some stage of the disease. This may vary in intensity from mild to severe. It may last for hours or sometimes days at a time and may require strong painkillers to control it. It often radiates through to the back and can sometimes be relieved by crouching forward.
Avatar n tn pressed Very weak Has had a sore on the bottom of his foot for almost a year has High blood pressure Swelling in his feet and lower legs, redness of the skin, blue feet Says he has not felt his feet in years Has had his elbow swell and they thought that was celulitus Veins in his legs are bulged out Discoloration in legs & feet Needs alcohol to sleep at all
902019 tn?1249865014 Her ALK 190, AST 146, ALT 208, LDH 947, Bilirubin 24, Gamma GT 848, CRP 11. Blood Pressure of 151/102. Does this sound like pancreatitis again due to the autoimmune disorder? Her Amylase levels were OK but a doc previous did say that this can happen with Chronic Pancreatitis where the Amylase level is normal?
Avatar n tn This sounds more like an acute Pancreatitis attack. Chronic Pancreatitis, to my knowledge, does not have the type symptoms you indicate. Acute pancreatitis has high levels of amalase and lipase and is sometimes very critical as this one appears to be. Do a search on the web for acute Pancreatitis for more information than you can read. Then do one on Chronic Pancreatitis and see the differences. Hope things improve.
Avatar n tn The location of your pain sounds very much like where mine was located before my first attack of acute pancreatitis. I now have chronic pancreatitis. I also had the yellow stools, either fatty or so oily that they would float. Also had the weight loss and inability to eat. Back ache is also a common complaint, but not everyone gets it. You need a second opinion.
Avatar n tn Diagnosing pancreatitis is not straightforward since similar symptoms can be generated by other disease processes as well, and it is necessary to distinguish between these before appropriate treatment can begin. Ultrasound examination of the abdomen and identification of elevated levels of amylase and lipase (enzymes produced by the pancreas) in the mother's blood are usually sufficient to confirm the diagnosis of pancreatitis.
Avatar f tn I've gone to the ER 4 or 5 times over the years. The second trip to the ER, I was told I had the symptoms of a gallbladder attack & within a weeks, had my gallbladder removed. There wasn't a single stone found, and two weeks later, I had another severe attack at work minutes after taking my first Vicodine ever, for shoulder pain. My co-workers thought I was having a heart attack.The Dr. said I might have a hiatal hernia & gave me Nexium. The attacks continued for 9 more years.
Avatar n tn When it is at it's worse my blood pressure also increases significantly, 150/99. I have not lost any weight, actually gained a few pounds. I am not overweight at 5'8" and 148 lbs. Prior to the onset of this pain I had excellent BP. It is not caused by anxiety because I have a cuff monitor that measures BP while asleep. My doctor suspects SOD, however, it seems the pain should not be as constant as it is and is not really affected by food.
140029 tn?1393301742 scheduled for a Hida scan on the 1st but after second opinion (examination) i was told propably not gb, i'm waiting for my enzyme blood test for pancreatitis results and are taking 2 teaspoons of fiber daily. ER room said IBS but I used to be a runner, no smoke/drinker any ideas??
Avatar n tn Sorry for got to say find the pressure points on your body. If you do a googel for fibro pressure point it will explain. They have diagrams, there are about 16 pressure points if you have so many of them then go to your dr and ask if you can be referred to a rhurmo.

Avatar n tn I have been experiencing extreme upper abdomen pressure for the past year and a half. I have had all kinds of tests and been to a gastro specialists and the doctors have not been able to find out what the problem is. The problem is getting worse but my doctors have given up on me. The pressure is under both sides of my front (lower) ribs and radiates up the center of my chest. It makes it hard to breath and I always feel full.
Avatar f tn Normal ECG, normal echo. Normal bloodwork, FBC, iron study, liver function. TSH was 5.3 on one test and 2.3 on a following. My doctor has requested a thyroid ultrasound and further bloodwork but said it was a precaution and she doubts it will come back abnormal. Chest X-ray clear. My doctor believes it is an encephalogical reaction to the H1N1 vacine that I had 8 weeks ago. I'm not so sure. I do have a specific question, my serum magnesium level was 0.89.
Avatar f tn I am slightly anemic, have been diagnosed with gastritis and reflux, high blood pressure, low thyroid (which also comes and goes), and the pain I've had in my neck has been diagnosed as cervical spondylosis. (sorry, that is probably spelled wrong) Currently I am waiting for blood work to come back. I know he asked for ANA and a comp panel, but I don't know what they are and there was one or two more that I Does anyone have these symptoms and could it be Lupus?
Avatar n tn These are the type of symptoms I endured for a while before my first bout with pancreatitis. I would take the chance and get a blood test to see what your pancreatic enzyme levels are. Especially when there are periods of pain. Your pancreaes is a long shaped organ that is next to your stomach and descending down to an area above your lower back. Have you had any vomiting? Any vomiting of billiaris material (yellow or green bitter stuff)?
Avatar n tn hiatal hernia - a stomach endoscopy - CT scan that revealed that my gallbladder did not have stones and that my liver was okay - blood tests that show that the liver is fine .. But my pressure in the abdomen is so intense that it makes me feel that my diaphram is going to be ripped out by it. The doctor has put me on ACIPHEX but that has not helped at all.
Avatar n tn I also took high doses of Phentermine for almost a year until Had to be treated for high blood pressure for 2 years before it returned to normal. My father and cousin have a history of heart problems/irregularities. With these test results(which frankely have me stressed out) and my history, how likely is it that I will be looking at surgery to repair those two valves? Should I be worried that the current condition could in all likelyhood become progressively worse?
Avatar f tn I went through 8 intervenous drips to rehydrate my body, I was woken up every hour for 24 hrs to see if I was hallucinating, and how bad my shakes were and to have my blood pressure and temperature checked.... Luckily the hospital gave me 15 tablets throughout this time, which detoxed me for that day and injections to stop me vomiting.. After being released I was put onto 200mg of vit B1 every day for 28 days nw reduced to 100mg. alsoa multivitamin.
Avatar n tn What would cause this? I have no other symptoms of pancreatitis and am able to eat just fine. However, they did find I am constipated pretty badly.
Avatar f tn ( this was when I fired the whole Gastro Group. Oh, one more thing? Does your blood pressure drop? Low Blood Pressure? How about bloating? I know the difference from menstrual bloating and stomach bloating. I have been researching over and over for people like me... there are many... who never gets a break from Pancreatitis unless our Pancreas gets' removed. I will be praying for you, as you under go this test.
