it started bizarrely, i had throat pain but not where you tonsils are mainly in the larynx area.
also having nerve- Electric shock type little pains in between my shoulder blade's and mid back which would come and go.
after six months of this I then suffered really horrendous at abdominal pain. which lasted a month non-stop it was worse at night when I was laying down and it was a really strong dull ache that would radiate right through to my back. also felt like i was being squeezed in a vice just above belly button area. one day it gradually started to fade out and I've not had it since like that maybe the odd twinge here in there.
but I do have a constant pain around my shoulder blades and when I take a deep breath it feels like my shoulders are being ripped out. i've had nausea and I was sick once and it had traces of blood in it, only tiny amounts though. I was told this could've been a burst blood vessel but I don't think it was because I'm 35 and I've never had blood in my sick before and normally I am a real recher when I'm sick.
i've had chest pain here and there as well now my pain is right-sided under my ribs that sometimes makes my right shoulder ache as well. and when I wake up in the morning is my left side feels like it's all cramped up bruised internally it's horrendous but the more I move throughout the day it gradually wears off. i now have flashes of pain in my elbows and knees, it feels like nerve pains, im asuming its reffered pain, i also used to get flashes of ear pain but not so much now as i used to get it.
i was convinced i had pancreatic tumor, and although i had normal mri and ct i wasnt convinced by them as iv read they can be missed, i told my specialist i wont be convinced untill i have a eus (endoscopic ultrasound) as this rarely misses anything.
so i had that done on Saturday and again was clear, so im now happy to leave the tumor theory... but i do think it may be cronic pancreastitis, as i have read this doesnt always show on scans. most of my symptoms left-sided and right-sided are my main symptoms plus the electric shock type pains in between my shoulder blades and what feels like on my spine. but the not so classic symptoms like the laryngeal pain The flashes of pain I get on my knees and elbows, really are confusing me!
i've been going to the GPs for the first six months when this started for them to treat me for depression telling me it was all in my head I was imagining the pain making the pain worse. eventually I collapsed with the pain I was taken to hospital where I had a CT scan and that was normal. i've also had an MRI scan ultrasound. Fecal test, A blood test for autoimmune pancreatitis. A blood test for tumour markers. all came back normal. (I had to pay for all of these things as the GPs were not interested)
The specialist I am seeing now did go over my scans again and said my pancreas does look on the plump side but has told me because all my blood testsare negative for pancreatitis it can also be plump if there is a lot of healthy tissue. I just don't buy that when I've got this many symptoms and in this much pain.
I also have two children and it does terrify me.
i've lost friends and family over this as everybody thinks I'm going crazy and should see a psychiatrist. but I know there is something wrong your body does not give of symptoms for no reason.
