Hi I was recently diagnosed with Mesenteric Panniculitis. I was in the ER with severe pain and they saw the "misty mesentery" on my CT scan. Just looking for some support and guidance. I see a GI specialist next week.

Hi @shandle – I was diagnosed with MP in February during an ER visit and have had 2 ER visits since then. I encourage you to go to Facebook where there are 2 support groups with great info, all taken with a grain of salt. The most important things to do now are to hydrate with at least 1 gallon of water a day, seriously reduce stress, get lots of sleep and watch your diet. I cut out sugar, dairy, spicy foods, fried foods, fatty meats. Mayo has 2 docs who specialize in the mesentery, so I suggest you try to see one. I have an appt 10/4 with a doc from Mayo in Rochester, MN. Sending positive thoughts to you!
