  1. pancreatitis?
    so, for two months now i have been living with this pain in my abdomen. the pain is in my upper left/middle abdomen and gets worse when i lay flat on my back. its a dull, achy,crampy constant pain. the pain intensifies through out the day and radiates to sides and back to the point where i cannot move.i also have excessive sweating in my arm pits, i get the chills to the point where my teeth literally start chattering and i have a low grade fever..99/100 and i get the hiccups everyday, and not just your normal hiccups, these are the ones that come deep in my abdomen. i have had every test known to man for my stomach and intestines…CT scan, Upper GI w/sb follow through, ultrasound and an endoscopy…nothing. i was put on medication but had to stop it because it was causing me to get dizzy and have double vison. so my question is, does this sound like pancreatitis or something else?
    yes, i have had blood tests. two mono tests and CBC’s…all which came back normal. also i dont know if this would make a difference but, i had the CT Scan and Ultrasound about one week after feeling ill.


    • Pancreatitis is an inflammation of the pancreas. The pancreas is a large gland behind the stomach and close to the duodenum. The duodenum is the upper part of the small intestine. The pancreas secretes digestive enzymes into the small intestine through a tube called the pancreatic duct. These enzymes help digest fats, proteins, and carbohydrates in food. The pancreas also releases the hormones insulin and glucagon into the bloodstream. These hormones help the body use the glucose it takes from food for energy.

      Normally, digestive enzymes do not become active until they reach the small intestine, where they begin digesting food. But if these enzymes become active inside the pancreas, they start “digesting” the pancreas itself.

      Acute pancreatitis occurs suddenly and lasts for a short period of time and usually resolves. Chronic pancreatitis does not resolve itself and results in a slow destruction of the pancreas. Either form can cause serious complications. In severe cases, bleeding, tissue damage, and infection may occur. Pseudocysts, accumulations of fluid and tissue debris, may also develop. And enzymes and toxins may enter the bloodstream, injuring the heart, lungs, and kidneys, or other organs.

      Yours sounds more chronic
      Chronic pancreatitis occurs when digestive enzymes attack and destroy the pancreas and nearby tissues, causing scarring and pain. The usual cause of chronic pancreatitis is many years of alcohol abuse, but the chronic form may also be triggered by only one acute attack, especially if the pancreatic ducts are damaged. The damaged ducts cause the pancreas to become inflamed, tissue to be destroyed, and scar tissue to develop

      While common, alcoholism is not the only cause of chronic pancreatitis. The main causes of chronic pancreatitis are
      blocked or narrowed pancreatic duct because of trauma or pseudocysts have formed
      congenital conditions such as pancreas divisum
      cystic fibrosis
      high levels of calcium in the blood (hypercalcemia)
      high levels of blood fats (hyperlipidemia or hypertriglyceridemia)
      some drugs
      certain autoimmune conditions
      unknown cause (idiopathic)


      Relieving pain is the first step in treating chronic pancreatitis. The next step is to plan a diet that is high in carbohydrates and low in fat.

      A doctor may prescribe pancreatic enzymes to take with meals if the pancreas does not secrete enough of its own. The enzymes should be taken with every meal to help the body digest food and regain some weight. Sometimes insulin or other drugs are needed to control blood glucose.

      In some cases, surgery is needed to relieve pain. The surgery may involve draining an enlarged pancreatic duct or removing part of the pancreas.

      For fewer and milder attacks, people with pancreatitis must stop drinking alcohol, stick to their prescribed diet, and take the proper medications

      Hope That Helps. Good Luck

  2. Has the use of Dabur Nutrigo for Men caused excessive sweating in anyone?


  3. Why do I get all worked up over the littlest things?
    Okay, I’ll admit, I’m a little bit dull around the edges and very sensitive. But lately I’ve been crying & getting mad/frustrated over the littlest things. Like today my friend in my gym class was talking to this other girl and she was right behind her so I could hear everything she’s saying. She said stuff like, ‘She has no common sense, she’s a man, she’s so stupid’ Like … seriously?
    I told my self that it really shouldn’t get to me, cause I KNOW it’s a joke, but I still get pissed.

    And also, I tend to cry a lot. For example, my mom asked me why my clothes are always wet near the armpit . I cried and told her I have excessive sweating. Like really? Why would I cry about that?
    And I also cry since I get so frustrated with school and stuff …

    I’ve also been getting white strands of hair.


    • Don’t worry about the gray hair.

      It is important to understand how self esteem is built and to use that information to develop your own opinion of yourself. Be aware of how you talk; be positive—no negative talk because it affects the way you perceive yourself. You are just as good as the next person and you need to correct the negative thoughts that run through your head. Practice talking positively to yourself in the mirror and you will be amazed at how well the positive input works after a while.

      Another way that works in how self esteem is built, is actually building confidence in yourself by building self worth. Don’t always try to please others, but take the plunge and build that feeling that you can make good decisions and stick to them. Avoid contact or association with negative people, because they can bring you down. Face your fears, forget your failures, appreciate yourself, and reward yourself—–all of these things can help you build confidence and self esteem.

      If you stay positive and keep your thinking in that vein then your life will take a turn in that direction and you will see first hand how self esteem is built. Avoid things that push your buttons and create a negative response in you, because you are what you think and you need to maintain a positive outlook in everything you do and say, and in this way—among others—- these actions will help bolster your self esteem.
