... So do this mean I could have it the rest of my life? This went away for a week and then came back. The only clue they have on mine is a slightly inflamed pancreas. I believe it means my digestive system isnt working and then it sends signals to my pancreas showing that or I may be mistaken. Do you have this or know someone who has? (10 replies)
... Generally you're stuck with it, unless some root cause can be found (some have it from a viral infection that eventually rights itself, e.g.).
