Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis symptoms in men


Avatar n tn Hi everyone Do these symptoms sound like fibro? I had slight tingling in both feet for a couple of months along with some vibration. At the same time I had muscle twitches (like pop corn popping) with no pain. Before this I had chest pain and feeling like my heart was skipping beats. I went to the doctor and had an EKG. He said my heart looked fine from those results. He took blood and I have no thyriod issues or diabetes (although my mom has hypothryiod issues and a suspicion of fibro).

Avatar n tn This is the first Web site I've found where there are people with the same symptoms that I have. I am a 32 year old male who lives in Seattle, WA.

Doctors tell me that I'm fine and "just need to avoid Iron and do some aerobic exercise." I would exercise if I had the energy to. It's comforting to see postings from people all over the world.
Avatar n tn My MD was at a total loss as to what caused my original pain which returned as soon as my pancreatitis pain resolved. I was lucky in that the pancreatitis that was due to the ERCP resolved quickly. Still and all I was out of work for 3 weeks. Tracie, I hope you are feeling better. When did you first realize that something was wrong? You went home after your ERCP, right? Did you end up admitted through the ER?
Avatar f tn The pancreas is found in the abdomen, where it helps to regulate the amount of glucose--a type of sugar that is naturally found in the body--in a person's blood.

Pancreatitis is expensive to treat because it's usually done in-patient and the condition is fatal more often than not.

Avatar n tn I have been reading about pancreatitis, and was wondering that if I have in fact caused enough damage that my pancreas is "digesting itself" due to the digestive enzymes being active in the pancreas, will this repair itself if I stop drinking? Or will the damage to liver and pancreas be permanent? Can I reverse this? OR, is it more likely that what I am feeling is liver pain?

Write if you want more info and good luck to your son.
Avatar f tn I have A Manual of Laboratory Diagnostic Tests book by Frances Fischbach, second edition.. which gives some possible causes for elevated levels of ALT and AST.

If your bile duct is clogged (the same stuff that causes gallstones) it slows or entirely stops the flow of bile from the liver and digestive enzymes from the pancreas.

Avatar n tn The GI doctor she just changed to recently now is suggesting she pursue the SOD treatment option in San Francisco with one of the experts in the field. We've heard about this option in the past, and from research we've done, my mom has just been too scared that the manometry and the sphinterotomy will make her worse and/or not help at all. Not just the research, but the super specialist himself in San Francisco basically warned her against it when she saw him like 6 months ago.

Avatar n tn PSC occurs more frequently in people with ulcerative colitis than in those with Crohn’s disease, affecting men more than women. Symptoms include jaundice, nausea, weight loss, and itching. PSC may not improve with medical treatment for IBD and may ultimately require liver transplantation. The cause is not known and there is no effective medication for PSC. To correct severe narrowing of the bile ducts, a balloon-tipped tube may be inserted into the duct to enlarge it.
Avatar f tn The symptoms can take months to years to manifest, usually from the age of 30yrs and is more common in woman than men. The neurologist thinks that the so called ‘glandular fever’ I had at the age of 32 was actually a flare-up of myositis, but misdiagnosed (once again). Usually the inflammation destroys the muscle fibres over time, but anti-inflammatories and cotrizone medication slows down this process.

Avatar n tn They will find out the results in a couple days. I'm worried about her and hate to see her in so much pain. It's very unlike her to cry over a stomach ache. I'm wondering if it could be appendicitis. The Dr. doesn't seem to think so but didn't give her another blood test today (12-27). The last one was done on (12-23). The first few days her pain was more often in the evenings.

Avatar n tn a woman can easily tell from vaginal yeast infection,but men,they have to look for other symptoms-constipation,bloating,perhaps more beer drinking(yeast food),tired easily,sleep too much,sleep too little. i am surprised on several postings when someone mentioned he has been on cipro for 4 weeks or any antibiotics for 2 weeks,no one mention the possibility of yeast infection. anyway,just my 2 cents.
