3 years ago I was diagnosed with acute pancreatitis from binge drinking. So After that I would never drink more than a beer or two when I went out. After almost a year I was re diagnosed with acute pancreatitis from drinking 2 beers on back to back days. Since then I have not drank alcohol. It has been almost 2 years now. Last week I began having pain in my upper abdomen right below my ribs (exact symptoms of the start of pancreatitis). I think I was having another episode of pancreatitis but the pain never became extreme. It has been a week and I still feel the pain. It isnt unbearable but it feels uncomforatble and keeps me up at night. Can a history of acute pancreatitis lead to sudden chronic pancreatitis or random episodes?
I am only 26 years old, exercise regularly, and have be on a healthy diet almost all of my life besides alcohol.
