At the end of June I got a sharp pain in the center of my stomach and then all these problems started. I've been in the ER over 5 times in 3 months with racing heart, gnawing pain in the upper abdomen and back pain that wraps around both ribs. They found out I had gastritis, gerd and Barrett's. My potassium has also been found to be low since all this started at the lowest it was 2.8. The stomach pain went away with medicine but the back pain stayed. I ended up finding out my gallbladder was filled with stones so I just had it removed a little over a week ago. Unfortunately I still have the back pain and I've had it for 3 months all day every day. It's hard to describe the pain, kind of like burning, cramping and stinging. No medicine really makes it go away, even morphine in the ER only lasted about a half hour for the pain. It's getting hard to breathe right because the pain is so irritating. Does this sound like it could be pancreatitis?
