pancreas problem or something else????
last year i started getting sick. the pain and vomiting got worse and they took my gallbladder out. i felt better as soon as i woke up and thats where the story turns bad. the day i came home from the hospital i had horrible pain in my upper abdomen. the drs thought it was from not passing gas and not having a bm. i took everything under the sun, they even did enemas.in the back of my mind i knew it wasnt that cause the pain was only from my sternum to the left about 3-4 inches. everything wakes up and i still have what i call ATTACKS. that started april 2011. at first they would come about once a week sometimes 2 weeks. now everyday. most days the pain is about a 4 to 6 and could last from 10 - 20 minutes and done or hurt for 10 -20- minutes and go for that time and come right back and last all day. pain starts under my left rib cage(sternum to left) feels like it grows. around my left side thru my back.starts getting hard to breath.after a big attack i can feel like there is something under my ribs.like its swollen.i can handle alot of pain but this makes me cry like a baby, the pain is off the charts.have no diarriah, i do start to feel sick to my stomach, does not matter what i eat or drink, pain is always in the same place and radiates around. now the last couple of big attacks the second it starts i feel pressure in my head like high blood pressure. last june they ran a test to see if i had, a stone lodge somewhere they missed.NO. they gave meds for stomach issues.NO, wasnt that. blood work shows nothing, but once the amylase was very high.but just once. no pain meds (even shots of strong drugs) dont touch the pain.i just had another ct last week, still waiting to hear.i cant take this pain anymore and the not knowing when and where the next attack will be.
PLEASE CAN ANYONE TELL ME WHAT TO ASK THE DRS TO LOOK FOR NEXT.i feel like im going crazy. thank you for your time.
