Question I was having pain in my back and my upper abdominal area.this has been going on almost 10 years, I finally went to my doctors and ordered a CT scan of my abdominal area. A doctor who read CT scan said that I might have pancreatitis. My doctor told me to quit drinking alcohol, which I have. My next step was to visit a GI he did not think I had pancreatitis. He thought I had a ulcer from excessive advil intake, he than order a upper endoscopy. I did not have a ulcer he then told me I had pancreatitis. He then order another endoscopy with a ultra-sound tip. the doctor that did this procedure said I did not have pancreatitis but saw what he was a smoldering and not drink for six months. It's been 11 weeks of no alcohol and I felling some what better, my back is still hurting alot.P.S. I work for UPS. What do you think TMS or pancreatitis or just getting old I'm 54.
