Pancreatitis or not?

8 month ago i started having pain in my upper left abdomen (near the sternum), upper left abdomen near the armpit and upper left back (under scapula). hard to breath sometime. My stool was light, pellet like mucusy and very hard to pass.
I have moderate itch; nose, chest and thighs, weight loss (2 kgs in 2 month), urine normal colour.

Tests outcome: very high bilirubin levels, liver function is normal.

EUS: mild esophagitis
MRI: normal

The Dr. gave me a diagnosis of gilbert syndrome to justify the bilirubin and said that he is not sure from where my other symptoms are from!

Should i settle for this diagnosis even though my symptoms persist or should i consult another Dr?

Absolutely, see a GI, if your doctor isn't one. Having a specialist is the only way to get to the diagnosis that you can trust.
