pancreatitis

517981 tn?1216785618 Also you might want to look up some information on pancreatitis. You can google this word or go on webmd or even this site. Your symptoms seem pretty close to this. I hope this has helped you.
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 m tn My son had this done and his doctor was relieved that he didn't have to touch his pancreas and causing him to have pancreatitis. Keep us posted and good luck! From WEBMD.... ERCP is a highly specialized procedure which requires a lot of experience and skill. The procedure is quite safe and is associated with a very low risk when it is performed by experienced physicians. The success rate in performing this procedure varies from 70% to 95% depending on the experience of the physician.
Avatar m tn Decreased blood and urine amylase levels in a person with pancreatitis symptoms may indicate permanent damage to the amylase-producing cells in the pancreas. Increased blood amylase levels with normal to low urine amylase levels may indicate the presence of a macroamylase, a benign complex of amylase and other proteins that accumulates in the blood. Is there anything else I should know?
Avatar m tn 10:18 PM I have been taking Prevacid for quite some time for acid reflux. Is it normal to have vise grip like pains around the upper portion of the abdomen (just below the chest area) that goes from the front to the back? Nothing seems to alleviate the pain, not prevacid, rolaids or tums, not drinking soda quickly to help me burp. The pain continues. Stomach bloating is quite evident when this occurs. It hurts to breathe deeply. I have had this pain constantly for 5 days now.
Avatar m tn According to the Mayo clinic website - "Results of a HIDA scan might include: - Normal. A normal result means that the radioactive tracer moved freely along with the bile from your liver to your small intestine. No problems were detected. - Slow movement of radioactive tracer. If the radioactive tracer moves through your bile ducts very slowly, this may indicate a blockage or obstruction. Or it may indicate a problem in your liver. - No radioactive tracer seen in the gallbladder.
Avatar n tn Lyrica does not commonly cause the mentioned side effects, though very rarely issues like pancreatitis, rhabdomyolysis may be associated. I would suggest consulting a gastroenterologist for a possible evaluation of the symptoms and suggestion of an appropriate management plan. Hope this helps. Take care!
Avatar n tn There are A LOT of posts over on the message board at webmd under digestive disorders that people are posting about the same symptoms. There's also a Dr.'s response. If I were you I wouldn't push for the gallbladder. If everything's ok, most likely it's not the GB. Be careful what you push for.....................When they start digging, then they are DEFINITELY bound to find something. That goes for everyone. We're all born with something or another and are fine with it. I have to ask though.
Avatar n tn I have so many symptoms that seem unrelated, yet I can't seem to get answers for any of them. I have severe pain in several joints: knees, hips, shoulders, and wrist/fingers. I have chronic fatigue. No desire to do much of anything most of the time. Frequent urination, I seem to spend more time in the restroom then out of it. I have trouble sleeping at night. I've tried ambien, but it doesn't seem to help, I'm still very tired the next day and wake up with a headache when I take it.
Avatar m tn Now the difference between the Parkland ER doc and Baylor ER doc, was that the Parkland doc offered up some possibilities that it could be pancreatitis (due to some of my other symptoms, which will be listed below), gallstones, or something either muscular or skeletal. I figured I would try getting into the Parkland Free clinics, but when I scheduled an appointment I was told there were no openings anytime soon and that they would call me when there was.
Avatar f tn Okay, so i am a young female who has a pretty long history of stomach issues with no primary cause. I will list: 14 years old to 17 years old: Bad cramping due to gas and loose, painful BM. Doctor's told me it was IBS and put me on Lexapro (then Prozac). Had weight loss and vitamin def. Constantly changing BM. 17-22: Gas stuck around (pain wasn't so bad). Was still having loose BM and started getting Acid Reflux symptoms...
Avatar f tn Does anyone else have levels go up and down like this. I've had many tests for pancreatitis and been very stressed besides the laparoscopic surgery. So I guess stress can cause many changes in the body. Any advice please. Hope this makes sense.
Avatar f tn ) Internet Makes Hypochondria Worse Cyberchondria WebMD Feature Thanks to the Internet, becoming a hypochondriac is much easier than it used to be. The easy availability of health information on the web has certainly helped countless people make educated decisions about their health and medical treatment, but it can be disastrous for people who are likely to worry. Hypochondriacs researching an illness used to have to scour books and ask doctors for information.
Avatar m tn I think that neurologist did you a disservice with his vague mention of an idiopathic dysautonomia -- you're shooting in the dark when you pick autonomic diseases and try to match your symptoms. This is not diagnosis. Ankylosing spondylitis is a serious disease -- if you had it, you would be in misery for much longer than three weeks. The symptoms are so severe and very debilitating. Please don't torture yourself by 'symptom surfing' the internet. You don't need the anxiety, believe me.
Avatar n tn I know this for a fact because I wrote about my very first ambulance ride in my journal back in September 2006, during which I was experiencing the exact same symptoms that led to my diagnosis. Since then I have gone to the ER on several occasions to get a shot of Dilautid or whatever for the pain. The frequency of attacks, up until recently, has been once every 2 - 4 months. In this past month alone, I have had THREE attacks, so it appears they are increasing in frequency.
Avatar f tn I am not a doctor however I have had pain as you mention. It could be gas or you could have pulled a muscle when vomiting, I think it is called costranditis not sure of spelling but that should be good enough for a search. It is the tissue between the ribs and can be strained Good luck!
Avatar n tn I too experienced the same symptoms post -op as pre-op. I had 100% remission of all symptoms for 4 days and then they all came back. Preliminary diagnostic (blood & urine) tests were within normal ranges. Don't accept normal findings when you don't feel normal. (my surgeon at 10 day post-op exam got me started with a simple explanation of the anatomy and physiology in the gastric system) This article "PostCholesystectomy Syndrome" is located www.emedicine.com/med/topic2740.
Avatar n tn I was convinced that I had gallstones because the symptoms matched perfectly and the pain comes on after eating greasy or fatty foods. I did a liver cleanse and ordered a gold coin grass tincture to soften up any stones in there, and have been drinking gallons of organic apple juice. The pain comes and goes, but I've been on a diet for the past week to try to keep the pain away, I'm not eating red meats or fatty foods. Mostly all fruits and salads and fresh vegetable and fruit juices.
Avatar m tn Prilosec has made these symptons bearable and has helped relieved them to some degree, however still have some of the above symptoms and gassiness. In truth, I never really felt that I had classic traditional heartburn or had problems eating certain foods, such as I could eat spicy foods and not have much change in my symptoms.
233616 tn?1312790796 Unfrtunately my GP did not listen to any of my symptoms and assured me nothing was wrong with my liver, so I went looking on my own and found this deficiancy fit the profile of my symptoms to a T. Of course some symptoms overlap with those of HCV as I later learned. Hwever, I do think this has improved my chances of fighting this and perhaps generating some newer, healthier liver tissue.
Avatar n tn I started researching Celiac and I have so many of the symptoms it is unreal. (Although you can have Celiac and not have symptoms, also the symptoms vary from person to person.) I got a blood test done last Friday to test for this and am waiting to get results. In my research for Celiac disease I found out that if Celiac disease is undiagnosed in an adult it can lead to gall bladder malfunction and gall stones. Bingo! The gall bladder is removed but the problems persist or become worse.
Avatar m tn increased or painful urination; severe stomach pain (with or without vomiting); symptoms of thyroid cancer (eg, lump or swelling in the neck, trouble swallowing, shortness of breath, persistent hoarseness)
Avatar n tn Yes, many of us can relate to your symptoms. You did the right thing by first getting to an MD to check out any physical problems. You never said what the outcome from cardiologist was. Most likely normal. If it is anxiety, the more you focus on it, the worse it gets. You need to get a distraction and try not to think about it. Much easier said than done, especially when symptoms are so severe. Have you thought about therapy?
537497 tn?1292556656 But of course as soon as I was too tired to fight it anymore I fell right asleep and slept just fine. What frustrates me is my symptoms will change. After a few months of the fast heartbeats and chest pains I convince myself I am fine and it goes away. But it that it? Nope of course not. Now something new has to come along and ruin my day, ugh....
Avatar n tn This web site came up after I punched in symptoms of abdominal vibrations. Does this fall in the category of paresthesias (abnormal sensations like numbness/tingling etc????) and where the heck are the doctors in all this? You would think there would be at least some paper(s) published or something! Sometimes I feel the only symptom you don't have to prove is pain! ...sometimes..?
Avatar n tn The paralysis is one of the symptoms. The mind is still in a state of sleep where physical movements are prevented so one doesn't act out dreams and cause injury while sleeping. I currently take Provigil (daytime) and Celexa (nightime). I also have trouble staying awake w/o Provigil. For years my sleepiness, irritability, etc. were blamed on depression. It has been a valid diagnosis as far as I can tell. I can function fairly well now. I am a 48 yr. old male. Hope this helps.
