For other people with mals, does it hurt to exhale very deeply. I notice that i inhale fine but I baby the exhale and never exhale all the way. Every once in a while I have to blow air in order to get enough air or I get out of beeath.

I have been to see many drs and been to the er with this numerous times. After a while they all seem to think I was making this all up and it was all in my head. It's frustrating to say the least. One thing that gets me relief is to get in the fetal position if you can imagine a 300 lb man doing that. Lol

I am a 52 year old male and I have diarrhea with nausea almost everday of my life. I have tested for many things but I just could never get relief. I somewhat learned to deal with the diarrhea by taking questran every morning before eating anything for 2 hours. If not I would get diarrhea within 10 minutes of eating my first meal everyday. I also get spells of severe abdominal pain with my stomach right in the middle under my ribs being ultra sore. I was recently hospitalized and they were thinking pancreatitis but they did a ct scan and found 75 percent stenosis of my celiac trunk artery. They say it is from vasculitis but the the ct scan clearly shows my ligament that attaches to my diaphragm is rapped around my celiac artery. The artery is only 2mm in dia now but the artery just past the ligament is 6.5 mm. It hurts almost all the time now but especially when I exhale. They want me to see a rheumatologist for treatment of vasculitis but I feel I actually have Mals syndrome. Here is a picture of my celiac artery.

I have one strange difference from most people with Mals. I have not lost weight. And when I have pain, i have an overwhelming feeling of hunger and wanting to eat more even though just causes more pain. I currently weigh 300 lbs and am 6' 6" tall.
