Avatar n tn The exact diagnosis would depend on a detailed history with respect to the exact site, duration, time of the day, intensity, any associated symptoms like nausea, vomiting, visual loss, any neurological symptoms along with your past medical history. Various tests such as blood tests, CT scan, MRI or lumbar puncture are usually necessary to establish a diagnosis. Take care!
Avatar n tn Thank you for your reply. wow, pancreatitis is pretty severe. Ends up that my husband had a lap-chole followed 3 days later with an ERCP (because of same symptoms)12 months and two weeks ago... the ERCP at that time didn't show anything in the duct..the doc opened a stitch and let out a bunch of bile and that seemed to work. We've had no problems until this past Wednesday, ...he had same symptoms that took us to the doctor to begin with.
Avatar f tn However, some sites also mention GERD among other things causing fast transit times. I don't have any other symptoms, no pain, no yellow skin, no yellow eyes. Just a little stress since I'm very concerned for my health and my next appointment is in 2 weeks. So what can it be the cause of the Yellowish Stools? GERD? The Nexium? or any other of my recently DX?
Avatar n tn 9 degrees celcius. Mostly it has been around 102. I went to urgent care with the symptoms of the flu, no jaundice or abdominal pain, just high fever and aches in all muscles and joints and no appitite. Blood work came back with white blood cells low and my SGOT (ASST) as double the high end of normal. The Dr. told me I have a form of Hepititis, but didn't seem concerned. I went to my PCP and he said I don't have Hep, but my levels are not to be concerned about. I'm not sure which Dr.
Avatar n tn My surgeon mentioned the possibility of me having this. What were your symptoms like? Did food have any effect on your symptoms? I do have reflux which is under control and I'm being treated for bile reflux since my gallbladder surgery (one month ago). Of course I still have that "pain." I am really trying to avoid any more tests. Thanks for any insight!
2188958 tn?1346448491 Also the cranberry juice will not cure the infection but it will help with prevention in the future. But it has to be pure cranberry juice and not a blend or something that is loaded with sugar. I think you can find it in an organic section of the food store probably. Just make sure that if you take an antibiotic that you also take a pro biotic with it because it will help keep the yeast levels in your girl parts at the correct levels. If not you can develop a yeast infection.

Avatar n tn From 20 to 40 percent of women who do not have bile stones, but have biliary pain symptoms, have acute pancreatitis following the cutting of the sphincter; up to 20% can have pancreatitis just from the procedure. There can be long term effects also. The common bile duct may become chronically inflamed due to reflux of small intestinal fluid into the duct. From 14-36 percent may have some long term complications which may result in chronic pain.
Avatar n tn We again heard back from the Doctor about the autospy, and what they listed down for the cause of death was all of her symptoms. It amazes me that they still couldn't come with something. They said all of her organs were ok, so then why did they all shut down? If it was Septic Shock, wouldn't there be any proof once they did the autopsy?

Avatar n tn my neurologist put me on Depokate to treat migraine equivalents, which at this time is still a questionable diagnosis.

Avatar n tn it appears to have shared symptoms, but:... -it's not "right side" specific. Actually, it feels more like the left shoulder blade area. Also why the need to keep drinking water to avoid a backache.

Her ocular pressure was actually only slightly elevated and with cessation of the Topamax, her pressure returned to normal in a day, while it took over a week for her vison to return to normal.
Avatar f tn Thanks again for your posts. We had him on white fish and pasta for 11 days - no problems at all then he suddenly had an "off day" and went off the fish!!! Since NY Day he's been a bit "iffy" - a good day, a bad day (eating and for the past two days he has vomited food and bile).
931217 tn?1283484935 Benefits of Neutering General Benefits - The primary benefit of neutering is the prevention of unwanted reproduction. Though the number of unwanted cats and dogs euthanized at animal shelters has decreased form an estimated 23.4 million in 1970 to about 4.5 million by the year 2000 [1], this still represents a significant problem. Reducing the number of unwanted puppies and kittens has been and remains an important part of reducing the relinquishment and euthanasia of these animals.
Avatar n tn Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS); inflammatory bowel disease; AIDS/HIV; malabsorptive syndromes; pancreatitis; lactose intolerance; and numerous medications including some antiviral medications, antibiotics, and cholesterol lowering medications; and even protein supplements.

Avatar n tn 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 m tn I'd try Nexium -- 2x/day if necessary to alleviate the symptoms. It should take no more than 5 days to reach maximum efficacy with any PPI therapy. Partial fundoplication could also be an option -- but usually insurance companies never like to pay for this procedure.

Avatar n tn If you have no possible HCV symptoms, no liver dysfunction, and a good biopsy result; do not treat with these drugs. I'm in week 20/48 and believe me alot of people who are treating and have treated live in denial. For most, any hepatic symptoms or liver damage that occurs through HCV takes many years; usually more than 20 and that's with adding alcohol and the likes. Interferon and ribravin can damage your body(other organs besides your liver) and mind much more during the coarse of tx.
