pancreatitis

902019 tn?1249865014 The other thing you may want to ask about is a comment I saw on the Mayo Clinic site that said that Imuran can cause or contribute to Pancreatitis. I'd love to know what he/she says on both counts.
Avatar n tn My husband and I told him our concerns about the possibility of my having pancreatitis, as I had the exact same symptoms. My doctor quickly dismissed it and sent me home with phenergan saying I more than likely had a virus and it would pass. After vomiting 14 days straight, I was back at my doctor's office... again, phenergan and go home.
Avatar n tn Other than that her symptoms go more with pancreatitis. Pain above her left ribcage that goes to her back - pain about her shoulder blades. When we saw the Dr.he had a complete blood work report in his hand and it showed raised amylase (131) and lipase levels (718) which I always thought showed pancreatitis. When I questioned him he said some people just have high levels and it is normal for them. I don't buy that.
Avatar m tn Was originally told transplant but then was informed that his liver enzymes are still functioning well at times to prevent us from being placed on liver transplant list and they just don't know why he is hurting so much - they refer us to a pain management center.

Avatar f tn I have Primary Extra-glandular Sjogren's. I am one of those rare ones that now have chronic auto-immune pancreatitis which I almost died from. My right parotid gland is always swollen and has been for years. I have extreme dryness of eyes, throat/mouth, nose and sometime the tender parts. I have extremely dry skin, have neuropathy and numbness too which keeps changing which is part of it being neuropathy and vascular problems.
Avatar n tn Dr Linos is a very good surgeon from the Mayo Clinic/Harvard and he has removed 3000 gallbladders and he could not see the large stone. Now the surgery left (4) tiny holes in my body and the one is inside my belly button that you cant see but it hurt the most. The other 3 are below my breast, one on the right side and a small slit where they drained the stomach. Now I had bad shoulder pains from where they blew me up so expect that too the next day after surgery.
Avatar n tn I was only out of work for 2 weeks and during that time was somewhat out and about. Symptoms of a new illness presented in March, starting with a canker sore, and progressing to flu like symptoms. I noticed greenish/brown mucus and tooth pain and went to doctor for an anti-biotic (I think Bactrim). I took the antibiotic which seemed to clear up what I thought was a sinus infection but I still wasn't feeling better and my glands were very swollen (they still are too a degree).
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
418182 tn?1204508006 When the blister breaks we an check it but get no reading on what it is due to the liquad being gone. Georgie..I am seeking other medical help from the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota. Weither they take me is another story. I want to say that all these months I have felt so very alone and that even going out in public was hard thinking everyone could see I was sick. Just talking to you knowng I am not alone has carried through the past couple days...thats great.
Avatar n tn My wife has been diagnosed by the Mayo Clinic with fatty liver. We had traveled over a thousand miles to go to a Mayo Clinic after local hospitals tried for two years for a diagnosis and came up with nothing. This was diagnosed by the use of a CT scan. She is an RN herself and works with critically ill patients. They opted not to do a liver biopsy and said that the CT scan is highly accurate. New symtoms however are surfacing. Sometimes severe nausea about 6 hours after a big meal.
Avatar f tn According to the Mayo Clinic, autoimmune pancreatitis is an unusual type of pancreas condition. Far more common is acute pancreatitis, which typically lasts for just a few days. This condition tends to be more common in men and often appears in those who are middle aged or older. However, it is possible for it to occur in people who are much younger. Effects Autoimmune pancreatitis causes such symptoms as an inflamed pancreas, weight loss, abdominal pain, itching and back pain.
Avatar m tn There are a number of cause of elevated liver enzymes.
Avatar n tn It often gets worse as time goes by. Don't fool around with local doctors! Go to a GI clinic, like Mayo, in Florida, Shands at Univ. of Fl is good, etc. My wife spent 9 months with local GI doctors and was diagnosed with everything from Pelvic floor dysfunction to IBS and more. NONE WERE CORRECT. Search the web for Chronic Pancreatitis and read up on it. It hits more males than female and often in the 40's age range.
Avatar n tn Can you get to a teaching hospital, or maybe the Mayo Clinic? They work very well together across the specialties, and their diagnostic skills are excellent. Blessings!
673049 tn?1225921298 (even though lyme disease is very hard to diagnose, but once diagnosed, totally curable). Then, she was supposed to go to Mayo Clinic (a very good hospital in the Midwest where everyone goes if they have a major illness) and they were just going to keep running tests til they found it. But the insurance company wants to send her to the University of Chicago instead. So there was a major battle going on there for a while. And now, all of a sudden, the whole thing has been dropped.

Avatar n tn There is nothing worse than a pain you can't seem to treat or get an answer about. I can totally sympathize. There are so many causes of pain on the upper left side of a persons abdomen.
Avatar f tn There are many causes of elevated liver enzymes Quoted from Mayo clinic Many diseases and conditions can contribute to elevated liver enzymes. Your doctor determines the specific cause of your elevated liver enzymes by reviewing your medications, your signs and symptoms and, in some cases, other tests and procedures.
Avatar f tn I am actually going to the mayo clinic because I can't get an answer. It sounds like you're having an acute attack of pancreatitis, but possibly chronic. I don't vomit after a large meal, but I get so bloated it hurts to breathe. I had my first encounter 2 years ago I suffered for four months because it wouldn't go away. I looked anorexic by the time all was said and done.
1126279 tn?1311898642 I had my pancreas totally removed (also gallbladder & spleen) at Mayo Clinic in Rochester MN. They have an excellent surgeon who does it laparoscopic!!! The recovery was very rough but not near as bad as having it open & not laparoscopic! I am now a Type 1 Diabetic & take enzymes with my food. Depending on where you are, Johns Hopkins & UCLA also have highly recognized surgeons for this surgery.
Avatar n tn I really don't know what else to suggest. Have you tried calling the Mayo clinic in Rochester? They are world leaders in health care, and that is where I would go if my doctors could give me no definitive answers. I hope the endoscopies will throw some light on the cause of your daughter's illness. Please come back and let us know how you get on. Liz.

Avatar n tn Seems the pain is at the same place, almost feels like ulcers but doesn't go away or get worst when I eat. What are the classic symptoms for chronic pancreatitis and are they always severe?
Avatar f tn His doctor could not find a reason for his pain until this summer when the pain got so bad he went into the emergency room and was diagnosed with pancreatitis. At that time gallstones were found so 2 weeks later his gallbladder was removed. He had some short lived relief for about 2 weeks then the pain returned and the nausea and vomiting continued. He was hospitalized again with pancreatitis and is now home on pain meds with no relief of the symptoms.
Avatar n tn One doctor suggested pancreatitis and a second opinion said no pancreatitis. I remained with symptoms of incessant fatigue, bowel changes, abdominal pain. The last few months I have had a weird "vibration" feeling in my abdomen. I have even reached for my cell phone thinking it was vibrating but realize no phone in pocket. It is more and more constant now when I am busy and when I am rest. What could this be?
Avatar n tn I have also looked on the FDA sites and have seen nothing mentioned about this. My mom really wants me to find out about Docs. at the Mayo Clinic because she has heard they have a top notch program. I can't imagine what is going on with the FDA and why all of the Docs are so spooked about this proceedure. I will try to find out more info.
Avatar f tn Hi, Thank you first for listening. As I am sure any of you who have been very ill, know how frustrating it is to get anyone to listen to you when you are having trouble getting a diagnosis for an illness that is making you extremely sick. I have been sick for 20 yrs. with NO diagnosis. I have "episodes" a few times a year where I cannot stop vomitting.
Avatar m tn Thanks for the replies they already did an ultrasound of the pancreas. They said it looked normal. Actually, they said they usually can never get as good of look at a pancreas than they did on mine. I rarely get an "attack," although some days are a lot worse than others (that is when I do feel a small sting in my back). I'm not ruling pancreatitis out but shouldn't it start to go away on it's own, or at least get better?
Avatar n tn I had a friend who had terrible nausea and she went to Mayo Clinic in Rochester because all the UW GI doctors in Madison, WI couldn't find any anwsers. NOW THIS SOUNDS STRANGE...BUT IT'S TRUE: They told her that her body just couldn't hold any more food and that's why it comes back out. Her entire body was blocked up. They had to teach her how to have a bowel movement. It seems her sphincter in her anus had bascially forgot how to work.
