I have pancreatic insufficiency, I had been losing weight for 3 years in the last 2 years the weight has been drastically drop. I was 13 stones 3 years back now im 9 stone, Last year I would get light headed, weak legs and arms after 5 hours of eating now its 2 hours. I lost and been fired from 7 jobs and now I cant keep a job becuase every few hours of shaking companies say to me to get my health sorted first. I got 2:1 in university I was perdiected a first and also a job but now I cant even maintaine a part time job. Has anyone else been through the same thing?

    Have you been tested for diabetes? It sounds like you may have low blood sugar. Malnutrition may also be part of it. Do you take digestive enzymes?

    Most importantly, do you have a gastroenterologist who specializes in pancreatitis? You need a comprehensive assessment of what is going on.

    I understand how you feel about work. I lost several jobs, too, due to my health. It is so difficult...

    Vedawms asked some of the same questions I was going to. Also, what is your diet? Are you eating clean and not drinking / smoking? Life style choices can help a great deal. So can exercise. Folks on this site know how challenging it can be and it's a great place to help get some direction, answers, and support. Hang in there.

      I forgot my checklist. 😉

      I was thinking about exercise before you mentioned it, Doublej29, but for different reasons.

      I've known several people with pancreatitis who do not respond well to heavy lifting and great exertion, like leaf-raking. It can set off an attack, and probably mess with blood sugar, etc. Just curious what kind of job you have, bilal70496.

      yes i eat clean because if i dont eat clean i get severe stomach burn, i never drank or smoked .. i took coginative enhancements while i was studying i think that had to do with some of the things that happend to me 😦

      i do get depressed and down

      i was very healthy 6 years back no issues

    My suggestion would be to go to another GI who really knows pancreatitis and see if you can get a more comprehensive set of tests. There is no one test for pancreatitis.

    And frankly, it doesn't sound like pancreatitis.

    Ask if you can get a neurology referral. I'm wondering if there is long-term damage from the uppers. There is also medication for "the shakes", but that's just a patch. You need to work more closely with your doctors to get to the root cause.

    See if you can also get someone to help get your stress under control. A counselor sounds like a very good idea to help you get your stress under control.

    I do wish you all the best!!
