Hi everyone 1st time on here but wanting to see if anyone can identify with any of the symptoms ive been experiencing. A year ago i was hospitalised with pancreatitis which was very painful. An ultrasound scan afterwards revealed a large gallstone about 3cm. Other scans done since have revealed cysts on my liver and kidneys and nodules on ny adrenal glands. I have high cholesterol for which im on statins and high blood pressure for which im on blood pressure tablets. My vitamin D was severely deficient at 19 nmol/l, i also had raised sodium and potassium levels. My cortisol was on the low side too. The thing is i have been off work for 3 months now thinking it was my gallstone and pancreas playing up again but now im not so sure. I have been in constant pain and find it hard to sleep at night. I am fatigued all the time and get breathless after little activity. I pass clear urine up to 14 tines a day and was up 3 times last night. I have low moods understandably and find it hard to focus on anything much. Just lately i have sporadic tingling in my right arm which is most annoying. Finally i have to see an endocrinologist next week but am unsure whats behind all this.

      Hi never been checked for diabetes but hoping this endocrinologist will check that out too. A whole mixed bag of things going on but worry at the back of my mind that cancer is always a possibility, my father and his 2 brothers died with different types of cancer. Still im not losing weight but crave salty things if thats connected to anything

    relax, I had the same problem. I did not do anyting and I got cancer of t he bile duct.  Get you galllblader out, if you do not you are damaging your pancreas which can turn into cancer. Don't mess around like I did.  Stop eating  out and stop eating fatty foods.  That is why you are in pain. I eat vegs and a lot of water and now have no pain unless I go off the diet and than I have pain.  I eat chicken twice a week and no meat.  It is hard on your liver which will cuase you more pain.

    good luck

      Thank you for the reply literally 'food for thought' - the old saying is you are what you eat, a lot of truth in this.
