I've suffered with upper tummy pain for many years (which comes and goes) it's slap bang in the middle and when it's bad it radiates to my back and I'm sometimes sick and rather hot. The pain is like a dull burn/ache which will wake me up. If I eat the pain always gets worse.
Doctors gave me an ultra sound scan which didn't show anything and I did have blood tests a while ago. I have a history of being anemic and also had an underactive thyroid (neither affect me now). Anyway I keep looking at the symptoms of pancreatitis and it sounds very similar. But doctors have said it's IBS? This has always puzzled me. IBS is meant to be tummy cramps? Also buscopan does nothing at all, like most pain killers, stretching, etc. Nothing helps!!
Anyway should I mention Pancreatitis to the doctor or will they think I'm being OTT? Surely they would have thought of it and I've heard it can be tough to detect? I'm only 30 though so maybe they just assume I'm too young? Or do I just accept the IBS diagnosis?
Any thoughts are appreciated!
