Jul 7, 2017 · Mesenteric Panniculitis or Sclerosing Mesenteritis in Digestive Health

I also have had MP for years. Your symptoms sound very much like my own. Sadly no relief only from pain meds on a regular ongoing basis. I am just curious if anyone that has been to Mayo Clinic at any site and has ever achieved relief on a long-term basis from Doctors seen at these sites? Just curious if there is justification for traveling and waiting, testing and then no positive results?

I too diagnosed 2011 with MP… have had flare ups often. When flare up occurs I go on regiment of Prednisone tapering off usually 2 weeks a fter starting. In SD so Mayo would be option but appointments are 5-6 months out for those with knowledge of MP. By then flare ups have subsided and the need to see doctor has gone. I am hopeful that answers for long term treatments can be found. Has anyone been given long term treatment and/or end results? @bakb

Thanks Doron, and yes I am looking for dietary solutions to my MP. Yes I have auto-immune and diverticulitis. I will certainly look at these suggestions and bring to my local MD. You said you saw a mesenteric specialist – may I ask where he/she was located? I am in SD so Mayo clinic is a possibility. I know Dr. Pardi is at Mayo clinic but to get an appointment takes months. Thus looking for possible solutions to help me now. I thank all for this group as I was very frustrated before. At least now I have suggestions and will work on what works best for me. 🙂 Betty

Hello everyone. My initial CT was in follow up to check on tumor on kidney. Initially my local physician referred me to GI doctor. No new news/help/recommendations there. Thus without going to Mayo in MtN r elsewhere my local doctor has been treating me for years. For flare ups I go on a low dose of prednisone with tapering after 5 days to coming off med. For pain which is constant I am on a low doseage of Hydrocodone AM & PM which allows me to function. I have diverticulitis from many surgeries over the years and adhesions that add to the discomfort. I have tried many types of diets to see if that avenue would help in easing pain/discomfort which has not been effective. I wondering if someone has a “home remedy” diet that may seem effective for the person trying it. I am 65 yrs old and retired – and just looking for information. Will follow this and appreciate all input.

Please alllow me to join your group. I have MP for approximately 5-6 years. I am maintaining between flare ups on a low maintenance dosage of hydrocodone. I am interested if others have dietary thoughts to share and/or exercises to help. Thank you.
