Is this chronic pancreatitis?
Hi all! I just joined because I think I might have chronic pancreatitis. I recently turned vegetarian, January 1st, and I gained a HUGE addiction to avocados. Like I might eat 3 or 4 whole avocados in one day. (I also might add that I am predisposed to pancreas problems due to my Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and predisposition to diabetes). A month after this new diet change I got a HORRENDOUS stomach ache that lasted all day long and had me in bed with a fever. It was so horrible, the next time I got it i decided to do yoga for 2 hours and that helped tremendously. I thought it was a lack of vitamin B-12 and started to drink enriched soy milk. I also cut down on the avocados becuase I wanted ot lose weight, so i started cooking low fat vegan meals. So I thought the soy milk was working, but I didnt' realize the avocados could be the culprit, until this past weekend. I went out of town and we went to a lot of restaurants, I had SOOOO much avocados and guacamole, and I drank lots of wine. It's now been 4 days of this stomach ache. It's so horribly painful. I am in tears writhing in pain a few hours after I eat, especially something with avocados in it. If I dont eat anything at all I'm alright, and If I eat food that's low in fat It only kind of hurts. Its a constant distended stomach with intense "cramps" that are felt in the pit of my stomach more on the left side and it radiates into my back, and reminds me of labor pains! Last night it started hurting in my lower back on the right side, which makes me think of gallstones, but I'm not sure. I'm just at a loss. I'm so scared of the doctor by the way and I really want to try and fix things naturally if possible. I also do'nt want to be completely wrong and just have gas or something, but it really hurts horribly! And this stomach ache returns and is the exact same every time it returns. Does this sound like pancreatitis? I just wanted to hear from someone who knows they have pancreatitis, just to know if i'm on the right rack. Thanks!

i was admitted to the hospital on July 7. Severe pain and vomiting. Diagnosed with acute pancreatitis. I was released 11 days later. Still in severe pain my primary care physician ordered a Ct scan and discovered a very large pseudo cyst. I had a drain installed and still have it. It stopped draining but they won't remove because of hole between pancreas and duodenum. They use this to inject...
Firstly I just want to say that most of you probably already know this, but as no doctor has ever given me any helpful advice regarding pancreatitis and I had to work it out for myself, I just thought I'd pass this on. Foods that I have found that really irritate my pancreas are as follows:OnionsTomatoesSpices, especially hot spices like pepper, curries etc.Vitamin C supplementsChilli peppersAlso...

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
Several weeks ago i bought a bottle of Huperzine A tabs after reading about it online and at this site.

I let my midday Mestinon wear off and gave it a little extra time for me to start feeling my MG kicking...
