mesentric panniculitis

I was recently diagnosed with mesenteric panniculitis.  Anyone else have this?  It's sort of rare.  I hope I can find a doctor to find the cause and treat it.

Hi, mesenteric panniculitis is a rare benign inflammatory condition of unknown origin that affects the mesenteric fat. Mesenteric panniculitis resolves spontaneously in most cases, however, palpable masses may often be found between 2 and 11 years after diagnosis. In general, treatment has been reserved for symptomatic cases. Incidental masses may be observed and left untreated. So, if you are asymptomatic at present, you can follow up with your doctor for monitoring. Regards.
