I was diagnosed with Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome

Customer Question

I was diagnosed with Superior Mesenteric Artery Syndrome about 3 years ago, when having a CT scan pre-op for scar tissue from a disc replacement they noticed my pancreatic head was "generous". I am sure this is why my duodenum is pinched almost closed. My amylase and lipase came back ok. I have had hormones checked too and that was ok. I have pressure in my side and mid-back, night sweats, full body muscle aches and cramps, and fatigue (mostly from the loss of sleep). Any ideas??
