My symptoms of pancreatic cancer started approximately 9 years ago. I am a severe alcoholic since age 16. I am unable to drink as I did in the past, after just a couple of beers I become deathly ill. Listing symptoms from onset to present Ð fatigue, digestive issues, diarrhea, lower back pain, overall feeling ill, night sweats, nausea, severe allergic reactions, shortness of breath, anxiety, depression, severe pruritus on the face and scalp, dark brown urine, and abnormal bilirubin in lab tests. The most recent is a palpable mass in the center and just below ribs that is sensitive to touch and increased pulse.
