In previous thread one of forum users reported a curious fact that mental state of depression, irritation and confusion may foretell aggravation of pancreatic symptoms by a day or two.
I have noticed similar pattern, namely a mental precursor (depression, mind fog) of relapse of pancreatic symptoms. This indicates to me that mechanism of our symptom development may not be caused by diet violation as in classic CP patients but have some additional aggravating factor that triggers both mental states and pancreatic symptoms, making our case more complicated and indicating that the culprit for our symptoms may not be malfunction of pancreas alone.
I've also noticed that a day or two prior to the onset of depression (and accompanying problems with mind for and urination frequency) my symptoms are at their lowest. In other words I feel the best just prior to depressive streaks and there is definitive cycle to this merry-go-around of symptoms: several weeks of recovery, followed by few days when symptoms are at their lowest, followed by depressive streak, followed by strong pancreatic symptoms (nausea, pain, general weakness) and then the cycle repeats.
Please reply if you've noticed similar pattern and have explanation or a theory of why it is so. This may help some of us to understand our illness better and manage it.
Are you aware of other CP forums online where a patient can get additional help? Please share.
