I was admitted on Monday, discharged on Tuesday. Ultrasound, CT scans and blood test for Pancreatitis negative, but the CT did show a bit of inflammation on the "tail" of th Pancreas and bottom of my right lung a bit of fluid. Dr not sure whats wrong with me - and that bugs me not knowing what is wrong. I am in constant pain - pain comes in waves with nausea (no diarrhoea or vomiting), i am bloated and pass soft smelling stools - sorry thats gross I know and I pass a lot of gas and I have heartburn too. I am seeing the specialist on the 16th. What is wrong with me? Some one else experience this (same symptoms and baffled dr)? Dr even diagnosed me with colitis?!

If you see a specialist then just relax. I will see my specialist on next friday. He changed me lot of medication for Crohn but not suits me. I still have diarrhear and cramp and I already know for sure that no one can cure my Crohn's diseases. So I have to live with it and find things to do to get rid of my mind the negaitve idea. What ever come will come. Worry doesnt help. I dont think you have big issues. If it is inflamed can anibiotic cure? Prepare questions to ask specialist for you waste money then you must know the answer of your sufferrings. Best of luck
you have to wait and see what the specialist says. im my case all scans normal and i have raised ALT liver enzyme but no known cause.
The surgeon told me yesterdaybthat patients with these symptoms are the most difficult to treat because its a guessing game until a deginitive cause is found and can only offer pain management until diagnosis.
He has suggested I could have something called biliary microlithiasis. It basically micro sized gall stones and sludge that can be missed on tests and sometimes can only be found with exploratory surgery and removal of gallbladder.
gallbladder issues can apparently cause pancreatic issues also. The fact they have found something may hasten up a diagnosis though. good luck.
Thanks for the reply stephen17840. I was at another dr today, and he suspect I might have Crohn's disease or something like that, but I must see the Specialist. He prescribed new pain meds and an anti inflammatory today. I will see the Specialist and see how this new meds goes. If I don't see any difference, I must phone him (dr I have seen today) - to see if he can get me to see the specialist earlier. (He knows the specialist)
