: I have several mild symptoms of IBS, but can control it with diet easily. The big problem is the tight, burning feeling I get below my breastbone, and occaisionally it will spasm TERRIBLY, and I double over in pain unable to breathe hardly. It lasts for about ten minutes, just long enough to get to the er for them to tell me there is nothing wrong. I don't get heartburn, the symptoms are better with BM's, I get plenty of fiber, no caffeine, spicy food, etc, etc. My doctors always want to put me on something like Prilosec, which helped, for a while, Prevacid and Zantac only mildly help. I had an upper GI, and abdominal ultrasound, which reveiled absolutely NOTHING, and the docs seem perfectly content to not know what is wrong with me. I am scared and frustrated, and just want to know if anyone out there has had these terrible spasms (in duodenal region) and if so, is Pancreatits, duodenitis, Hiatal hernia, WHAT?!?! Thank you for your help! Sarah.

Hi Sarah,I don't think it is pancreatitis. I had it and it is a everlasting pain with out stopping. I landed up in the ER and 7 days in the hospital. No food or drinks only IV's on 5th day Gall blader surgery. Pancreatitis is the most painful thing I ever had. It will NOT go away on its own. It must be treated.Good Luck, CP
