For 5 weeks I've been back and forth trying to get a diagnosis. I've been suffering with severe pain in my right side that radiates round and into my back. The sever pain has lasted up to 2 days but the dull ache is always there And is very tender to touch and so far no painkillers omeprazole and buscapan have helped. I can barely eat always feel nauseous and have already been off work 3 weeks the pain is that bad. I had an ultrasound which only showed a dilated bile duct and no stones in my gall bladder. Last Tuesday my gp sent me straight up to the surgical assessment unit at the hospital after seeing my heart rate was 115 and I was very hot and clammy despite my temp being normal. Whilst up there they pretty much did nothing. Had bloods took again which showed elevated white blood count but nothing else. I was basically told they're adamant it's an infection in my stomach/ duodenum / small intestine and just sent me home waiting for an endoscopy (which could be another 3 weeks as I've already been waiting 2) never checked my heart rate or blood pressure once in the 7 hrs I was there either. After a bad nights sleep I woke up this morning with new symptoms. As well as my right side pain I now have pain in my left side that feels very crampy but with agonising sharp twinges it's slightly painful just under my breast bone in the middle and I have a pain across my mid-upper back that's really uncomfortable and almost like a burning sensation and a dull ache all rolled into one. I have managed to eat small amounts and keep it down but still feel very nauseous and a little bloated. I also get breathless quite easy and it's uncomfortable to take deep breaths. Should I be wary of the onset of pancreatitis with these symptoms? The Dr at the hospital has ruled out gallbladder/bile duct issues on the basis of there being no visible stones but I don't agree with her guess as I've never suffered with indegestion/acid reflux or stomach problems before. I'm still thinking gall stones or possible stone in my bile duct with the pain and symptoms I'm getting I'm just worried with the new symptoms 😕
