For the last few years I have had SHARP disabling pain in my lower left side at and below the ribcage. I used to think it was just gastritis, but now that I am having new symptoms I am thinking it could be my pancreas and am making a doctors appointment. I have had fatigue like you would not believe, night sweats where I have sweat out the entire bed, my tryglicerides are 313, and my glucose has been slightly elevated and liver enzymes elevated as well. Last weekend I thought I was having chest pains but I also had pain in that lower left area, and went to the hospital thinking I was having a heart attack (I have high BP anyways) My cholesterol had been elevated too, so I was concerned. It was 91 degrees outside and I think it turned out to just be heat stroke, so I thought. Now, a few days later and home from the hospital and I don't feel ANY better with the fatigue, and it's worse when I eat. My stool has been oily as well, but I just chalked that up to my IBS.
My question: I am not nauseous nor do I have a fever, but sometimes my appetite is lost on occasion. Is it still possible to have pancreatic problems if you're not really nauseous or having a fever? Anyone?
