I've shared before that I have pancreas problems. I had three pancreatitis attacks in 2012-13. Pancreatis is inflammation of the pancreas. Your digestive enzymes start digesting the pancreas itself, and to be quite honest, that's exactly how it feels. Like a wild animal clawing your stomach from the inside out.
After a lot of doctor visits and an exploratory procedure, no one was sure why this was happening to me - the pancreas is apparently a very mysterious organ. I've been able to avoid further attacks by limiting alcohol, but it still flares up every now and then. When my pancreas troubles started, I also started having stomach issues. I would wake up and just feel off. No intense pain, but my stomach felt unsettled every morning. I had begun to accept it was just a reality of my new normal, but talked to my gastroenterologist and he suggested Konsyl.
