pancreatitis

Avatar f tn female that doesn't drink, doesn't smoke, eats very healthy (except for a slight indulgence in chocolate) and drinks 8 - 10 cups of water daily. Since last July, after 3 days of taking Doxycycline for acne (acne turned out to be due to allergic reaction to dairy), my stomach began to swell to the appearance of a 5 mo. pregnant woman (I'm normally a size 2).
Avatar n tn I had to put my 11 year old Llhasa apso to sleep yesterday because he was diagnosed with pancreatitis and was in so much pain that they could not guarantee that he would survive even with treatment. It came on suddenly...he was fine Saturday but began throwing up in the middle of the night and continued...he couldn't even hold down water and was very weak. I took him into the veterinary hospital on Sunday and he was too weak to come home.
Avatar f tn I have been doing research online regarding Autoimmune Pancreatitis. I am noticing no case studies done in my sons age group, treatment is corticosteroids/steroid saving therapies, over a prolonged period of time. In all the research i have been reading there is no data regarding long term prognosis , or quality of life in persons with this disorder. Another concern of mine is if he has to go on a steroid long term, what about schooling?
902019 tn?1249865014 I was diagnosed 2 years ago with AIP, have a 25 year history of autoimmune disorders (eosinophilic vasculitis, mild Sjogren's). Usually have done well with prednisone for the various flare-ups but with AIP, still recurring symptoms and the elevated IgG4 periodically. Next step may be Imuran. Is there anyone out there who has had good results with Imuran for autoimmune pancreatitis?
Avatar n tn Hopefully he will decide to get help he can not do it alone. He will need an inpatient treatment. The excuses will never stop they never do. They also can not do it alone. I pray for you.
Avatar n tn Your husband is receiving the standard medical treatment for a severe acute pancreatitis attack. Often severe cases can take several weeks to subside. The doctors are controlling his nausea and replacing his fluids and allowing the pancreas total rest by restricting solid food. The antibiotics were given as a safeguard in case any infection resulted from his attack. This, too, is standard procedure after an acute attack.
Avatar f tn We need to stay in touch. I also have daily chronic headache, same tests as you were normal, have been to 3 neurologists (2 headache certified). Have your doctors accurately defined (to your satisfaction) whether you have migraine or tension or cervicogenic headache? Different preventive medication for migraines may not be effective on tension headaches. I have tried propanolol, which did nothing for me. Ditto for topamax--just made me dizzy, couldn't tolerate it for more than 1 day.
Avatar n tn My suggestion to you is to stop eating. I know that sounds awful, but the treatment for pancreatitis is for no food for at least 2 - 3 days. This is what they do if you were to be hospitalized. You want to rest your pancreas so it can heal. When you eat it causes it to work causing more stress to the organ. Drink lots of water. The diet once you feel better is a very strict low fat diet, as the pancreas's job is to help digest fat.
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 n tn She did not take this medication on a daily basis but overdosed. The second one almost died herself of pancreatitis. She is a admitted drug addict to vicodin. She has been honest from the beginning of her pregnancy about her addiction but never honest concerning the amount she has taken throughout her pregnancy or that she was taking "bootleg" pills. Therefore the doctors appear puzzled as to her condition based on only the facts that they know.
Avatar f tn I hope someone out there can help me. For 14 years, I have suffered abdominal attacks in my diaframe very high up in the area between my rib cages. The pain mimics pancreatic pain. The pain is so horrible that I almost wish I could die. It usually lasts 20 to 30 minutes, but can be longer. I am paralized during these attacks & can't move. They usually occur 4 to 6 times a year with milder attacks in between the more serious attacks. Lately, they are becoming more frequent.
Avatar n tn 32 yr Male, daily abdo pains/discomfort in naval area (above/below also) since Aug. which come and go several hrs after eating and last several hrs. GP suspects IBS (initially gastritis) Stools are regular & normal but in Aug I had red blood on side of stool on 2 occasions and constipation (now relieved by keeping up fibre) Ever since 18 (not every week but most weeks) I have drank around 6-8 pints of lager a night 2-3 nights a week.
Avatar f tn We are seeing a pediatric gastroenterologist and are in the midst of a bunch of tests on much of her entilre body but I want to make sure she gets the best treatment initially once a treatment process is started. I would be happy to travel to the best one or have my present doctor consult with one on the cutting edge of knowledge about this blastocystis and how it affects the digestive system and the body.
Avatar m tn 46 36 Questions: What does the change trend mean? Should medication treatment start? What medication to start with? What dosage? How long should I prepare to stay on that medication? What side effects to expect? What is the monthly cost? Thank you for your feedback.
Avatar n tn I was in the hospital last month with pancreatitis. The treatment is for no food. The pancreas needs to rest, and by not eating it can heal. Your baby will get plenty of nourishment from what your body has stored. Not being a Dr I can only guess that another case of pancreatitis would be worse for the baby than to go without food for a few days. By leaving without the Dr discharging you. You are showing the Drs that you are unwilling to follow Drs orders.

Avatar f tn I'm off the Procrit and Neupogen as well. I've cut back the Ultram to just 1/2 a pill (25mg) daily. Before, on treatment I was on 50mg twice a day. Anyhow, I've been feeling totally bad since stopping treatment. I can't sleep hardly at all, which makes it worse because I've never been able to take a nap during the day either.
Avatar n tn I,m a little uncomfortable with the previous comment about the pancreas damage getting worse it,s not always the case, I met a lot of people who had pancreatitis, had treatment and have been fine for years, just avoid the things that caused it your surgeon will advise you, have some hope
Avatar n tn Some hospitals do outpatient detox, where you go in daily and have vitals done. They provide daily meds (librium usually). If you can't stay out of the clubs and away from these violent situations you describe, then maybe you need inpatient detox somewhere. You have to be motivated though. What's it going to take to feel motivated to quit? Serious injury to you or someone else? jail? liver failure? It's up to you and when you are really ready, people here will support you.
793908 tn?1294708709 I POSTED THIS IN THE FORUM TOO... Hi all..I have not been in here in awhile. Life has been hard for Julie (my 10 yr old mini poodle). As some of you know, she is on Trilostane. It WAS working great till she had many Pancreatitis attacks..every month for 6 mos..& she had to go off & on Trilostane alot & that threw her body way off. Reluctantly, my Vet upped her to 34 mg. & said she can not go any higher for her weight..13.5 lbs.. I read differently...
Avatar m tn My son who has Autoimmune Pancreatitis takes 2 tsps of Atarax ( histamine) daily. The only thing i have noticed this med does is help with his insomnia. It doesn't seem to affect his pain tolerance at all. the way i feel though is try anything to see if it brings relief, while it hasn't been beneficial to his pain, it has been towards his sleep cycle. he has gone from sleeping 2-3 hrs nightly to finally sleeping for 6-8 hrs. The only advice i can give is keep searching...
Avatar m tn A radical group of doctors and law enforcement have submitted a petition to the FDA that would effectively eliminate treatment of chronic pain with opioids. The maximum treatment would be 3 months and the amounts prescribed very limited despite the amount of pain suffered or the amount of medication you currently receive. You may read the petition here: http://www.citizen.org/documents/2048.pdf And respond to the FDA here: http://www.regulations.gov/#!
1330624 tn?1282845059 while this doesn’t necessarily signify disease progression, it is a favorable indicator for successful treatment. I did several years of interferon ribavirin treatment and other than fatigue, and some mild cognitive issues I managed fairly well. The doctor is right in that lifestyle is important; if you have some free time right now, and not under a tremendous amount of pressure, it might be a good time to get this done with… Welcome to the discussion group, by the way.
877337 tn?1249848050 Then I was admitted in ER for pancreatitis then they said my levels of Hyperthyroid are went high which needed immediate treatment. Then i started om Methimazole .After few months my LIVER levels came little bit up and my antibodies were also high. As iam already have pancreatitis they said sludge in gallbladder which would affect liver and now Methimazole liver levels up NOTGOOD .As we were on TTC for babies they said i should take immediate option.
Avatar f tn The « gastrointestinal doctor in Québec, Canada» Has given me the choice to proceed with the triple treatment but suggested that I wait for 3 to 5 years for an optional treatment which may have less side effects. I am wagering for the treatment because I am presently eligible for insurance coverage that will not be available to me in 3 years when my husband retires from his present employment.
233616 tn?1312790796 A guy has a heart attack at 45 because he took treatment. doesn't mean the treatment caused it. could have been his genetics and a million gut bombs..or that he was a prison subject, still it will go down in the list of possible side effevts. there's no way to prove a drug causes evert reaction. Not when they are only around for a few years anyway.Part of the bad rap for GH comes from all the misuse, athletic and hollywood, but docs won't prescribe megadoses for people to become the hulk.
Avatar n tn The finding of IgM-anti HAV antibodies confirms hepatitis A virus as the cause. You may need serum amylase and an imaging study to confirm pancreatitis. Treatment is mainly symptomatic. Correction of hydration and rest. Seek medical help. Take care!
Avatar f tn I continued feeling bad after I stopped treatment. Neuropathy and brain fog that interferred with daily activities.Yesterday I lost my car in the store parking lot, locked my keys in the car, and could not remember what I had done that day. My neuropathy is mostly in my legd and feet. I have to really concentrate on my steps, it is really difficult at times. My provider said that these symptoms were from treatment meds. I complained, stating I was off meds.
Avatar n tn recurrent esophageal cancer, stage IV, completed aggressive radiation/chemo treatment about 7 months ago; current CAT and PET scans were negative for cancer, but a positive biopsy was found (by scope) near esophagectomy site of the cellular level; waiting to undergo another scope with more biopsies; looking for any suggestions to curb the mucus/gagging reflex and daily nausea; have tried Joe Barton's reflux remedy (w/apple cidar vinegar, honey, etc.
284208 tn?1292859119 Since pancreatitis was high on your vet's list of possibilities perhaps your vet could simply provide daily treatment without performing blood tests or hospitalization? You might be able to bring your dog into the vet's office for daily subcutaneous fluid therapy and injectable medications without leaving your dog at the hospital. Additionally, maybe your vet could instruct you in how to give subcutaneous fluid therapy at home. Your vet may be amenable to this.
