Shes 34, she did not fall or hurt herself. She does drink alcohol regularly and did drink alot Thursday night. Woke up and could not move without the pain. Shes been having a hard time since. She says it feels like a knife that comes to the front abdomen then shooting pain to the back
Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Her height is 5'4 and shes 150 pounds
Doctor: Dr. David, Board Certified Physician replied 3 months ago

she could be having pancreatitis inflammation of her pancreas if she is having upper abdominal pain radiating to her back and if she has been drinking a lot of alcohol

blood tests can check for amylase and lipase levels.

she should go to the ER

they can do the blood testing there.

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
