... KJones80 - chest pains? - yes indeed. They were awful. I had/have a back injury from an auto accident about 2 1/2 yrs ago. For a long while, the back spasms and the wrap around pain were layered. It was difficult to tell them apart. But - when the flexeril stopped working on the back pain (spasms) - I later learned this new symptom was gall bladder and in my case -... (9 replies)
... Hi About 5 weeks ago I noticed a large swelling in my upper left abdominal area, initally there was no pain. About week after I noticed the swelling I had come home from shopping, thought I would grab some lunch - about an hours late it was like some-one was putting a knife through my stomach area. I went on to develop symptoms of heart-burn/gasritis- seems to come and go... (1 replies)
... Good morning. Just wanted to check in with you and see how you are doing. I am ok, but my symptoms came back again so I suppose the medication is not so great after all. I had an attack of IBS yesterday and other than stress I don't know what the trigger was, but Im eating my Activia yogurt and I took one of the amitiza caps and I felt sick to my stomach. This thing is so... (13 replies)

... I empathize. It disheartening how often things are not thoroughly explained and then you feel you have to make a snap decision. They did not tell me about the iodine injection when I had my upper GI until I was about to start the procedure. Not knowing if I was allergic and the severity of the reaction (if I was by chance) did not make me feel very positive to say the... (13 replies)

... Thanks so much for your support. Yep I got the double whammy all right lol. Well the scan went ok, but I felt like I really messed up. I had to sign papers of course, and the part about the dye I struggled with and just could not decide if I wanted it or not. I did not remember having the dye in my veins when I had my last CAT a few years ago. Soooo I beat myself up over it... (13 replies)

... Hey there wv! Hope everything went well. I know the barium "shakes" are real tasty! :) At least I do hear they are so much better than they used to be. Sounds like you got the full scan with the double whammy on drinking the stuff the night before and the day of. Mine was only day of.

... I know what you mean about doing research that only makes everything more scary. I have run into the same thing. I love to learn but sometimes I just stress myself out. I read about pancreatic cancer too and as luck (or a lack thereof) would have it, I also have a fatty liver. Guess we're two peas in a pod! I also don't show signs of jaundice, fever or vomiting (unless... (13 replies)
