I have had some blood tests come back with super-high triglycerides, so my Dr put me on Tricor to help bring them down. I really figured that they were high because we had been on vacation & I had been eating more "fatty" foods than normal. So, I did not take the meds ever night, also, they made me feel sort of nauseous, so it was easy to "forget" them sometimes. Well, for the last month or so, I have been having terrible pains on the left side of my abdomen whenever I eat, and started burping, which I NEVER did before. Since I am Celiac, I thought at first that maybe I had come across some hidden gluten, but watching my diet didn't seem to help. Actually, things got worse. So, I had also just quit my job, and got a new one, and was without insurance. Yes, of course there is COBRA, but it was very high, so I was hoping to 'tough it out'. No way. My attacks have continued, and I did some diagnostic work on the web, and realized it was my pancreas, like they had warned me! I sent in my COBRA payment, and will see my Dr tomorrow. My question is this.....does anyone else suffer from this disease? It appears that it will be a lifelong problem, given that my first attack was a month long. I have gone to a liquid diet to help the symptoms decrease, but surely I cannot be expected to live this way forever!! What the heck do I do???
