Hello,I am a 33yr old male who is not a drinker. My Pancreas hurts. I went to the hospital about a year ago and the doctor said my pancreas is trying to digest itself. What should I do to feel better. I started a new job and my insurance won't kick in for a month. Is there something I could ask a doctor to prescribe for me?Please advise. Thanks in advance for all your help.
Person's Gender: Male
Person's Age: 33
I took a pain killer that was given to me last time. Tylenol 3. It had a little effect on my pain.
Hello, where are you experiencing the pain?
Were you diagnosed with pancreatitis?
What investigations did you have last year?
Can you list your current medication?
Pain- in the middle of my chest
I went to the hospital the same day I sent this message to you. The did diagnose me with Pancreatitis. The said my Lypase levels were over 2000. I was in the hospital for 3 days. Is there anything I can do moving forward to prevent this from happening?
No Alcohol at all.
They said I don't have any Gallstones as well
What is MCRP?
I had an ultrasound done
All I take is Zyrtec (allergy Med daily)
No they discharged me and weren't very sure why this happened. They said it could be internal plumbing or microscopic stones in the gallbladder that cannot be seen that irritates me
I am going to see my primary care doctor today is there anything I should ask him? I am going to see a GI doctor as recommended to me next week. Any Q's for him?
I appreciate your help. Thank you
