If so what were your symptoms and experience?

I'm being treated for diverticulitis but still having pain. All blood work is normal.
Thanks a bunch [Smile]

Symptoms couldn't stop vomiting. Sore pain kind of dull in pancreas area. I believed they did a scan of sone kind and blood test. My blood test were abnormal and they told me I had pancreatitis. Hospitalized for 5 days. No food or fluid just IV

My recent ct scan came back with atropy (shrinking) of pancreas head with chronic pancreatitis. I did do specific pancreas labs, no results till I see doc on Wednesday.

My symptoms range from a dull contstant pain in the stomach to OMG horrific disabliling back pain. Lasting for seconds to hours. I have chills,sweats, diarrhea, some vomiting and fatigue.

I had horrible back and stomach pain. I felt like I had the flu, vomited, couldn't sleep.

My white count I believe was off the charts. Nothing to mess around with.

I don't know what to do. Had this last year super bad. Had scans that were all normal. I don't know what this is.

My symptoms:
Abdominal pain
Dry heaving
Diarrhea
Low grade fevers
Chills
Sweats
Very bloated stomach

How long do I need to give the cipro and flagyl before giving up on the diverticulitis idea. This is day four on antibiotic.

The dr said he wants to treat for babesia but the gut issues are relentless!!

Please does anyone have any idea? I am feeling like death.

I also get these skin reactions. Like stinging burning skin that sometimes rashes up. I CANNOT go on this way.

Suggest going on a liquid diet. Low fat, low protein, low carb. Mostly water and veggie or chicken broth. Rests the pancreas.

Also need to be careful about taking proteolytic enzymes...they can make pancreatitis worse...

Have you considered that some of your meds are making it worse??

I think certain meds (like Tylenol) make my pancreas hurt.

Research colloidal silver and its effect on pathogens . It causes no harm to gut and kills many ( 650) pathogens. Really worth considering as it wiped out infections for me that ABX did not eradicate . Best brands : Sovereign , meso , and Argentyn 23 . Many LLMDs are using these .

I was woken up at 3 am by excruciating pain upper left abdomen under ribcage- that shot thru to my back with intense nausea (did not vomit)

Then the next day could not eat or drink anything without intensifying nausea- could not even chew gum. That was followed by a SEVERE headache and body aches- so thought I had the flu (slight fever, but not much)

The next day, on top of all this, I developed an unquenchable thirst. I was now able to drink water without nausea, but no matter how much I drank- I could NOT quench my thirst AT ALL. It was very weird.

Then by day 3- I started having (sorry this is graphic) green watery diarrhea which was happening even while I was sleeping. After 24 hrs of that- I started passing out and my heart was skipping beats.

Went to ER- and was told that my Amylase and Lipase bllod results were thru the roof and that I had ACUTE pancreatitis.

Was hospitalized for 7 days.

Noone knows why I even got it. I do not drink AT ALL- lost my gallbladder to Rocephin several years earlier....

Since then I have developed "chronic pancreatitis" where I have mini-attacks that never get as bad as that first one.

If I just "rest" my pancreas- by not eating for a day or at least eating very "easy" food, it seems to clear up.

Ok ty guys. I sure hope my meds aren't the problem. I have to have these meds. My labs are fine so I'm just confused. And scans are always ok.
