Best early diagnosis

Hi @samakyl2, you are clearly concerned and something isn't right. It is quite possible that stress is adding to your symptoms or perhaps even the root cause of your symptoms. It is incredible how many physical symptoms stress, worry and anxiety can cause. Personally (and I'm not a doctor), I think you shouldn't run to get more scans. In this case, more isn't necessarily better. Stomach and back issues are common symptoms of many different conditions or ailments. I wouldn't leap to something as grave as pancreatic cancer or pancreatitis. You probably have that on your mind because of your husband's experience.

I might suggest a thorough consultation with your PCP to review your symptoms and discuss next steps. Depending on the result of the blood tests, ask which specialists you might see.
Sam, do you have a PCP you trust and can work with you?
