5882236 tn?1377621424 Hi there, I had severe reflux/GERD and Barret's Esophagus due to longstanding GERD issues and had anti-reflux surgery (Nissen Fundoplication) last year and a year + post op, I can definitely say that my upper back used to hurt a lot. My Nissen Fundo surgery was a success and I don't experience the back pain anymore so I really believe mine was GERD-related as I don't have any back-issues.
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 m tn If there is concern about the prognosis or treatment efficacy, I would always obtain a second surgical opinion to ensure that the proper course is being taken.

Avatar f tn I was referred to a rheumatologist and found out that I do not have a rheumatoid disorder. I have terrible GERD, which I am told may be why I am having trouble swallowing and breathing and have a regularly occurring cough and nausea. I also found out from a barium swallow that when I swallow any texture of food or water that it does not continue down my esophagus to my stomach. Some of it lags behind and stays in my esophagus.
Avatar f tn Cirrhosis of the liver has many causes with two being diabetes and obesity. Chronic pancreatitis needs treatment. There are medications to help lower your sugar, but your doctors must have a reason for not giving these to you. I don't know what their thinking is.

Avatar n tn It's true that some heart problems can cause shortness of breath, but GERD can cause a breathing problem called "Vocal Cord Dysfunction" that often feels like trying to breathe through a straw! Sometimes people have BOTH heart & GERD problems. Sometimes GERD alone can cause palpitations. If it's just GERD, check my website called, "Can't Breathe? Suspect Vocal Cord Dysfunction!", which is at and read everything that mentions GERD.

My primary doctor can find nothing wrong with me and I am still living with this little bee stinging sensation in my side. Can anyone help?
Avatar n tn no evidence of masses or pancreatitis, the absence of the pancreatic body and tail, no pancreatic ductal dilation, difficulty in visualizing the pancreatic duct, and hypodense areas in both lobes of the liver. A previous ERCP showed pancreas divisum. Liver biopsies showed missing small bile ducts, but the ERCP showed normal major bile ducts. Could these CT results be the source of my daughter's chronic pain? Would an ERCP procedure to correct the pancreas divisum provide relief?

Avatar m tn My mother has been diagnosed with GERD, pancreatitis, and has a feeding tube and pain pump. She does not eat solid foods. She has small hard brown seed type things coming out of her feeding tube. Her doctor just shrugs it off and does not look into it.

Avatar n tn Dear Pattie, I assume from your posting that your pain is attributed to chronic pancreatitis and that other causes have been excluded. The pain from pancreatitis can be devastating. For those who suffer from chronic painful pancreatitis, each day is challenging. Some patients require ongoing narcotic use- Duragesic patches being one approach to relieve symptoms. Some, however, require klarge doses of demerol to control the pain.
Avatar n tn A positive test is one in which the patient's symptoms are reproduced.

Use of an antacid (Mylanta/Maalox 30ml) after meals and at bedtime. 3.
Avatar n tn My history is complicated, but I am hoping you can offer some suggestion. I have severe reflux, and chronic pancreatitis(not a drinker)for over 7 years. 4 bouts with the pancreas were severe enough for hospitalization. My gallbladder was removed just before the first bout of pancreatitis, probably causing the first case. Gastro said the gallbladder was extremely "sick" and the ducts were full of sludge.
Avatar n tn Possible GI causes of pain in that area would be the various causes of dyspepsia (i.e. GERD, an ulcer, or inflammation of the upper GI tract), pancreatic disease or (atypically) gallbladder disease. With the latter disease, it typically presents with right upper quadrant pain. I would consider an upper GI series looking for GERD or an an ulcer. You can consider blood tests looking at the pancreatic enzymes.
Avatar f tn My mother had severe GERD and was told she had hyperacidity. The thing is hyperacidity is rarely the cause of reflux. She actually had very low stomach acid and now takes betaine HCL with pepsin and digestive enzyme supplements with great results. Excerpt from Chris Kresser's article "Get rid of heartburn and GERD forever in three simple steps"... "To review, heartburn and GERD are not caused by too much stomach acid.
