Nausea related to Chronic Pancreatitis
I was dx'ed with chronic pancreatitis about a dozen years ago. I am very familiar with all of the attending symptoms, but one seems to have gotten much worse of late. Nausea is very common with pancreatitis, but in my case, it typically comes and goes. In the last six weeks, It has been severe and constant from the minute I wake up until I go to sleep and that usually does not last nearly long enough (my sleep time is short is what I am trying to say). I am diabetic and it has been a real struggle to eat enough to keep my blood sugar from going too low and have any energy at all. I have used phenergan, zofran and the transderm scop patches and only phenergan gives the slightest relief.
I guess my questions are; Has anyone experienced a significant increase in nausea related to chronic pancreatitis? If so, were you and a physician able to discover anything that may have been the culprit? What action was taken either knowing the reason or just treating the nausea without knowing the root cause?
