Anyone have CP i think I have early CP, for several months now ive had green and yellow stools sometimes loose sometimes hard sometimes both I cant digest tomatoes or lettuce anymore, It doesnt hurt to eat however I have almost a constant dull pain on my right upper quadrant... however if I push on my stomach theres rarely pain, most of the pain is in my back but its weird if Im sitting still laying ect its fine but if I arch my back (shoulders back, stomach forward) I get this pain in my back just about where the back ribs connect to the back... I have been to a GI he has me on an acid reducer and a spasm reducing drug for my colon, he did a colonoscopy/endoscopy, and said I had a spastic colon, and acute gastritis, however it just doesnt feel like it to me, from all the surfing ive done it seems more like something bilinary but he is adamant that im too young

It really is not possible to say whether or not you have chronic pancreatitis based upon the limited information that you have provided. However, if you have never had pancreatitis before, and if you do not have gallstones, and if you do not drink alcohol or take medications associated with pancreatitis, and if the lipase or/and amylase levels in your blood are normal, and if there is no history of chronic pancreatitis in your family, then it is unlikely that you have chronic pancreatitis.

You should certainly ask your GI doctor to comment on your concerns.
