Hi, I was diagnosed with chronic pancreatitis last year, I have good weeks and bad weeks with the pain, I have had constant diarrhea and I've had a low grade fever every day for months now and it makes me feels miserable, sometimes I get real shaky and weak and I can feel my temp rising, especially when I get nauseaus. I'm also having problems now with awful acid burn in my thoat, I cannot lye on my back or right side without burning liqiud coming up and usually I have a gnawing burning pain in my stomach. Are the fevers part of having chronic pancreatitis? what about the acid burn?
The low grade fevers seem to be pretty common with CP. I have CP and it happens with me quite often. I have not had a problem with the acid burning sensation you describe, yet have heard others speak of it, particularly those CP patients that also have Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction (SOD). Since this is a new development for you, I suggest you see your gastroenterologist as soon as you can get an appointment and have this checked out. It sounds very uncomfortable.
Thanks nanny, I feel better knowing the fevers are probabaly coming from my pancreatitis, I actually called today for an appointment and I have one for October 3rd, meanwhile I'm eating tums and drinking pepto bismal like it's going out of style! they help for a little while, then it just starts up again:(
