30 years of Epigastric pain with no relief
ABOUT THIS CASE FILE
I have suffer with upper epigastric pain for 30 years. It started with a bout of pancreatitis that lasted about 2 weeks. For years the doctors thought it was my pancreas, that I had chronic pancreatitis. All test came back that the pancreas was fine. I’ve seen several gastroenterologist. I’ve been diagnosed with GERD, IBS, and Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction. I take 3 medications (Pepcid, Zantac, Prilosec) for the GERD, but still suffer with it. For the Sphincter of Oddi dysfunction I have taken several medication and had 2 ERCP’s with sphincterotomys. All with little to no relief. I’m at the point were I’ve just about given up hope of ever find out the problem.
