Mesenteric Panniculitis or Sclerosing Mesenteritis

Hi, I'm new here and was just diagnosed with MP after 3 months of pain. My GI doctor says that he thinks too many people are being diagnosed with MP that do not have it and that it ISN'T rare which goes against everything I've been able to read thus far. My CT scan was the cause for my diagnosis and they found it without contrast because I can't do contrast because of kidney disease. I'm thinking he may be a little cavalier about my problem and I'm thinking about getting a 2nd opinion, possibly at the Mayo in Jacksonville Florida. Has anyone here been to that facility for treatment? If so, can you recommend a doctor for me?

Hi I was diagnosed through a CT scan with contrast, had and still do a pain in my right lower stomach, the doctor reading scan said I had MP. When I finally got to have a conference call with him. He does not believe I have it. He thinks it is IBS. Well he told me to taken tsp of Metamucil once a day. I still wake up with the pain or discomfort every morning. I did go about a week without it. I definitely have better stools. I hate the idea that every morning I awake with this discomfort but if I get up and walk around it starts the gas moving and I go to the bathroom, pain goes away until next morning. If you find out anything different pls let me know…
