So I have been having constant Severe Upper stomach pain after using Hpylori antibiotics course. It has been almost 5 months with no relief. Endoscopy, blood tests and ultrasound all normal.
I am explaining my pain here for possible diagnosis. My stomach gets stiff with even slight activity as brushing teeth or walking. It continues to get stiff but the real pain starts when it seems like the inner stomach wall stiffens or get tires and it feels exactly like someone punched me in my stomach, inside of stomach feels swollen. I find it difficult to walk or talk when pain is extreme. It seems like stomach is so much irritated that it does not relax at all. Even if for sometime it feels like stomach is relaxing when I stand it starts stiffening again. Pain is in upper stomach in the middle and left and it radiates to back as well. Walking gives cramp like pain in the upper stomach as well and back. Bowels are normal but I have lost my appetite and lost 10 kgs in just 4 months.
Pancreatitis from ultrasound and blood test is not diagnosed. I dont particularly feel pain after eating, I have not vommited but extreme pain does make me feel nauseated now most of the time. If it was pancreatitis wouldnt I feel extreme pain after eating?
It cant be nerve damage because bowel movements are normal but it does seem like stomach muscles have lost its ability to relax. What have these course of Amoxicillin and Clairythromycin done to me can anybody please diagnose or relate to this issue. My mistake was to continue taking the antibiotics for 7 days even though on very first few days I was in extreme pain.
I was healthy before with no issues and no hpylori symptoms as well but now even if I clench my stomach (when it feels like its a bit relaxed) within an hour inside of my stomach feels like someone punched me its disabling pain I cant do anything, I havent stepped outside of the house or done anything because slight activity stiffens and pains my stomach. Why its not settling it has been almost 5 months why no relief and what could it possibly be, its so extreme that it has almost disabled an active person like me, movements of hands and deep breathing also hurts?
Doctor is inclined towards pancreatitis and requesting CTEC (which I am reluctant to do) even though ultrasound and blood were normal, plus I dont particularly feel pain after eating (I eat very little though because of pain). I have never smoked or consumed alcohol. My stomach feels swollen and while walking I can feel the pain and cramps in upper stomach and the feeling of pain when you jump from high place and feel a pain in pit of your stomach.
Another thing is sometimes whole stomach stiffens and you can feel the whole stomach while walking or while lying on the side you can feel its tensed stiff and like a solid brick (but this feeling comes and goes). Pain is disabling you can realize by how an active and strong guy is finding it difficult to even brush teeth, vigorous movements stiffens stomach and I feel severe upper stomach pain like someone punched you in your upper stomach and you find it difficult to breath.
Sorry for Long post, kindly help me diagnose what it is and can people with pancreatitis shed some light and tell me whether my symptoms seem like pancreatitis?
