    I have been experiencing several issues..I had been admitted several into hospitals several times in the past 2 years. It started with being admitted for pancreatitus,..keeping in mind i am not a alcohol drinker. I had several tests done and no answer to resolve my constant pain in center of my chest and bores back to my back and up into my shoulders, I am a diabetic type 2, diagnosised with baretts disease and had ct scans done, mrcp, several x rays and had my gallbladder removed back in june of this year and still experiencing issues and i have an hiatal hernia also my gastrologist just put me on creon(pancrelipase) and still no effect... my pains are relentless going on days now ..extreme fatigue,lack of appetite and insomnia, and unexplained weight gain and also in past had 2 colonoscopies and endoscopies done. and yet still in pain.
