Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis symptoms uk


Avatar n tn I have had acute pancreatitis and now have chronic pancreatitis, so maybe I can answer some of your questions. Some symptoms of pancreatitis include a swollen and tender abdomen, nausea, vomiting, fatigue, sometimes a fever and rapid pulse. Weight loss is frequent. The nausea, pain and vomiting often follows a meal of some sort, and can be triggered more severely by foods heavy in fats. Often there is pain in the abdomen and between the ribs at the base of the sternum.

Avatar n tn In 1982 I underwent a transduodenal sphincterplasty of the Sphincter of Oddie for the diagonisis of a stenotic pancreatic duct. Symptoms were burning abdominal pain radiating into my back at waist level beginning approximately 20 minutes after eating. Sometimes the pain caused vomiting with trips to the emergency room. Remained pain free for several years but burining pain started again after meals. Ductal manometry (sp?) revealed I had a spasming pancreatic duct.

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.
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).
769745 tn?1345750012 I got home and looked up the symptoms of gallbladder problems and they match mine, also what matched more was pancreatitis. Acute pancreatitis The main symptom of acute pancreatitis is abdominal pain, felt just behind the ribs and spreading through to your back. The pain usually comes on quickly, over about an hour, and can be severe. Often this pain is worse when you lie down, and feels slightly better when you sit forward. Other symptoms include nausea, vomiting, fever and feeling unwell.
Avatar f tn * Upper abdominal pain * Indigestion * Losing weight without trying * Oily, smelly stools (steatorrhea) When to see a doctor Make an appointment with your doctor if you have persistent abdominal pain. Seek immediate medical help if your abdominal pain is so severe that you can't sit still or find a position that makes you more comfortable. See: http://www.mayoclinic.
218828 tn?1217257258 There is a very indepth article on Gastrointestinal Malabsorption on the Patient UK website. This is an excerpt... "Malabsorption, from whatever cause, may be accompanied by: Changes in weight and growth: Inadequate absorption of calories will lead to loss of weight in adults or stunting of growth in children. Adults will complain of unintentional weight loss and perhaps tiredness, lethargy and fatigue.
Avatar n tn Do, please, look up the "Pancreatitis Supporter's Network" on Google (UK based). It's a very informative and helpful site for sufferers to chat and offer their own experience and help to others. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn Hi, Please, please keep on at your Doctors. I live in the UK, and started having attacks of SEVERE pain, with all the obvious symptoms of acute pancreatitis. In addition, pancreatic abnormalities (insulin-dependant diabetes, pancreatitis etc) have run down the mother-daughter line for four generations. It took the doctors FIVE YEARS, and in the end, a suicide threat (desperate for someone to take me seriously) for them to diagnose acute pancreatitis.
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?
544292 tn?1268886268 I would be interested to hear from anyone with similar experiences when using both drugs. Andy - Taunton, Somerset, UK Like Andy from Taunton I was given Tramadol on top of the highest dose of Pregabalin and had the same symptoms. I have now come off of Tramadol and am seeking a new pain killer to take over from it.
Avatar n tn Yes, one can have acute pancreatitis or chronic pancreatitis. The reason why I think it is your liver and/or pancreas is that you mentioned the hypoglycemia symptom. Inflammation should show up on an US. I still think there is something going on with them. Diarrhea since 19? Please make sure you let the GI physician know about that. I am not sure if that is related to any food intolerance. As far as the antibiotics, I think they were aggrevating your gastritis.
Avatar m tn With obvious concern, we brought him to the hospital and he was diagnosed with pancreatitis. A common diagnosis. He was put on a bland diet, some meds, and sent on his way. Still no eating. He was brought back to the hospital with a fever and dehydration. He was put on IV fluids which made him feel 90% better so he started eating a little bit. His fever went down so he was sent home again. Once home, he refused to eat or drink.
Avatar f tn People with parathyroid (not thyroid) problems have a lot of your symptoms too. And it could account for the pancreatitis. This disease is commonly referred to as the "stones, bones, abdominal groans and psychic moans". Research this and see what you think. Given the pancreatitis I'd think your more along the hyperparathyroid disease than metabolic myopathy. Hope this helps!
Avatar m tn It could be anything from a virus, to a gut blockage, a tumor in her throat....pancreatitis......liver problem, kidney problem.... Only a vet can tell you. One way or another you HAVE to find the money needed for her treatment. Is there a relative or friend you could borrow money from? Or like Margot says, it IS possible a vet will allow you to make payments in stages. It depends. But I would advise speaking to the actual vet, and not just the receptionist in the office there.
Avatar m tn I am still experiencing the same symptoms of uncomfortable irregular bowel movements, pain after eating red meat or high fat foods (I have changed to a low fat diet on recommendation which has helped a little), constant mouth ulcers and discomfort in bottom side of right ribcage when lying on my right side. I am also experiencing pain around the left hand side appendix scar when I stand up for any length of time or walk any great distance.
Avatar m tn However the episodes of pain have continued and the doctors have at various points decided it was Kidney Stones, Gallstones, a problem with my gall bladder and pancreatitis however I've had CT scans, ultrasounds, numerous blood tests and urine tests and none of them show up anything characteristic of the above.
Avatar f tn I should also add that I have had no previous problems with my pancreas, never had pancreatitis, I am not an alcoholic, I have had no blunt trauma to my abdomen nor surgery.
Avatar f tn Hello, I live in the Uk, and I was wondering if anyone could help interpret my blood work results. I seem to be exhibiting hypothyroid symptoms, but my docs says I have normal thyroid function, but my hair is falling out I have gained 30lbs and can't seem to shift it with diet and moderate exercise, I am losing some hair eyebrow eyelash foggy memory really bad. Please help if you can. Need to know if iam rt3 dominant and leptin resistant. Also I have some nodules in both sides of my thyroid.

I had a very infected full of stones gallbladder .I had a very hard time getting things to show up on tests so by the time we did get me in I was very sick ...
Avatar n tn My dog recently diagnosed w/Cushing symptoms and shes only 7 yrs...I am not real good yet regarding the disease...I have been on forum asking same questions...there is though a person on this forum, that does know, hopefully they will respond to you... Good Luck...
Avatar f tn Ongoing symptoms include:- never ending fatigue, BP that falls rapidly at will, swollen glands in throat and axilla regions, hearing loss in R ear, brown facial mask that is darkening, recurring pancreatitis, headaches, brain fog that makes me nonfunctional at times, abdo & back pain when having a bad "episode"! Inability to cope with stress when fatigued and start to yawn non-stop then collapse into a heap. BGL normal. Morning cortisols taken twice and within normal limits.
Avatar m tn Prednisone mainly acts to speed up the aging process of the body. Hence, hardening of the arteries will accelerate, cholesterol is higher, osteoporosis is faster and more severe, the blood sugar is higher, cataracts form, muscles atrophy and lose strength, fat forms around the abdomen, the legs thin, and the skin thins. In general, think of any aging effect that you see on any organ and prednisone will accelerate this effect.
Avatar n tn consatant reoccuring pancreatitis is not acute,its chronic,and that puts you in a whole different ballpark my firend! if you eat certain things...(greasy,fatty,dairy,lots of proteins exct) or if you drink alcohol,and contine to do so,this will ALL cause the pancreatitis to act up. every time you eat the pancreas has to do work to help digest,difference is with this condition,it does not release the needed enzymes,instead it acctivates them inside the pancreas,and its itself !
Avatar n tn However, this is my history...I am 33 (next week), white female (UK) and was found to have an extensively calcified pancreas in 2006. It would appear my accute attacks started in childhood and continued in adult life, especially during pregnancy. A particularly bad episode of pain led to ultrasounds being requested, whereupon the extensive calcification of my pancreas was discovered. I was also told I have nephrocalcinosis.
Avatar f tn My daughter had her gallbladder removed 2 yrs ago at 29. There were no gallstones. It just wasn't working at top level. Anyway, she still has the "bad gallbladder" symptoms. Pain in her right side moving into her back underneath her shoulder, intolerance to greasy or spicy foods, severe diarrhea, nausea. She was told this is normal but I had mine removed at the age of 53 and I've never had a problem. What's going on? She has had several tests done prior to surgery but nothing since.
