Some of you may remember me from months ago, along w my symptoms. I went on doxy for @ 6 wks ,when I went off the sx reduced a ton. Never had labs pointing to lyme but was given a clinical possible dx.
Now for 1.5 months I have had upper left ab pains and some centered burning. Turns out my lipase has been elevated which dr said points to mild pancreatitis. I had a ca 19 tumor marker done (had this in the past as my dad died of pc) and it doubled in one month and is dbl normal. Dr said this can rise with general inflammation to the pancreas, not always cancer. I am however, terrified I have PC and its going undetected. I had scans, eus etc-all clear, but know it can be missed.
Now this is a stretch of some sort and hope you can answer-
1 Has anyone had inflammation of the pancreas from doxy
2 Has anyone had inflammation of pancreas from lyme?
