I have had three or four episodes of pain in the upper middle part of my stomach. More like a feeling of being punched really hard than of sharp pain. It starts off mild and worsens and radiates to my back. I experienced all the episodes while sitting at the computer. I immediately stood up and the pain started to lessen. Walking around helped some and then I took a tums as this happened between 8 pm and 9 pm in the evenings. I notified my GI doctor today but he is doing procedures all day. His nurse will call when he checks in. They are always reliable. She is concerned it may be my gall bladder...oh joy.
A few weeks ago my bilirubin was a tad high and the doctor sent me for a liver panel. The nurse said that all came back clear, so that is a relief. I was just wondering since he increased my 6MP to 100 mgm, if this could be pancreatitis. hmmm. I am eating low residue , nothing spicy.
