Jan 4, 2019 · Mesenteric Panniculitis or Sclerosing Mesenteritis in Digestive Health

I feel your frustration. I am right there with you. I recently had the colonoscopy done to verify there was no underlying issues there causing it. All was good. My ANA blood work came back positive with inflammation so I am waiting to see what other tests the dr. wants to do to try and narrow down a more specific autoimmune disease. Other wise we are thinking that all the lithotripsy's Ive had on Kidneys is the cause however the last one I had was in June. Hang in there.

Thank you John. I see where others discuss specific diets to control inflammation, more information on that would be great. Also, what other testing can be done to determine possible causes and treatments of the condition.

Just recently diagnosed with this condition, have ran ANA and was positive for inflammation. Had colonoscopy to rule out any tumors, diverticulitis, etc. All was good there. No waiting for more tests to be scheduled to see if there is an underlying cause. I have suffered from kidney stone for last 12 years. Actually went to er thinking I had another stone when they discovered the MP because of the enlarged lymph nodes and swelling. Anyone else suffer from this, have information they can share, etc. My family Dr. is really good about researching and referring to other Drs. when he doesn't know. Just seems there isn't much information about this condition.

Hello everyone, recently diagnosed with MP. Went to ER with what I thought was just another kidney stone turns out it wasn't but it was MP. had several enlarged lymph nodes in the lining and severe pain. My family dr. has ran several test checking for autoimmune. The ANA came back positive, he ordered a colonoscopy to rule out any colon issues, all was clear there. So now back to drawing board waiting to see what other tests he wants to do. Can't seem to find out what has caused this. My paternal grandmother had multiple autoimmune diseases, I also have a cyst on my right kidney and have suffered from kidney stones for last 12 years. I have had mono twice in my life time. once at 13 and another time at age 22. Second time I was in bed for a solid week going and getting a shot everyday for the swelling in my throat and ears. I am looking for any information to help me cope with this condition. I have low grade fever, body aches (like flu), and the pain in my side. Steroids have helped with the swelling which has reduced pain. Still have occasional flare up of pain. I just want to feel normal.
