Is your chronic pancreatitis 1000times worst when you don't sleep? I have this do you?

Posted , 4 users are following.

Everyday I don't sleep the pain increases 1000 folds and makes it harder for me to sleep the next day. The more sleep I get the better I manage but usually I only manage to get like 2h. As the night goes by and I don't fall asleep the pain keeps on increasing. Its so weird and have yet to meet anyone like me. Please whether you are like me or not I would really appreciate your input.

Thanks

    I don't think the amount of sleep I get affects my CP at all.

    I'm so sorry to hear about your pain. Lack of sleep decreases your growth hormone. Therefore cellular repair decreases significantly. I experience an exacerbation of pain following sleeplessness too.

      Hi Victoria,

      Your the first person I have heard say this as well. I'm sorry to hear you have this too. I was wondering where your pain was located? Do you also get kidney and intestinal pain on top of pancreas pain. Only manage to sleep 2h and skip days sometimes. Is it the same for you?

      Thanks for your help

      Good evening Alex, my pain is constant under my right rib cage. After eating a "naughty meal" the pain moves to epigastric region; feels like acid is burning. The two episodes I've experienced with acute pancreatitis the pain radiated to my left back. I have constant diarrhea with everything I ingest, even yogurt! Lemon juice with water helps pain. I've found that fasting helps me the most, as my acute/chronic pancreatitis is secondary to hypertriglyceridemia. Hope this helps?

    Not sure that I have pancreatitis as thetest results aren't in on that one, but I do have gastritis, gerd and a hiatal hernia that the doc said would make gerd worse as I age. For me, the extra acid production ticks off my stomach issues. Stress can cause extra acid production. Am guessing lack of sleep causes extra acid production from stress? Been keeping pepto bismol by my bed for when stomach wakes me up. Was also told 2 seasons (Soring/Fall)make acid production flare due to pollen which is supposed to increase acid.
