Brief Answer:
Answer given below

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for the additional information.
Amylase is raised only less than 2 times the upper limit of normal.
ALT, Cholesterol and GGT are only mildly raised.

The flank pain could be muscular. Tylenol may provide relief.
Since you have history of passing kidney stones, an ultrasound scan may be done as kidney stones too can cause flank pain.

I hope that answers your query.
Let me know if you have any more questions.

I became very ill about 7 1/2 months ago with e-coli. In hospital my eyes were extremely light sensitive and my left side was extremely weak. both legs now are affected (hips are stiff and painful as well as lower back) and it is very painful and difficult to walk. The MRI of the brain showed post infectious process, vasculitis and demylination. The MRI of the spine showed significant degeneration. The EMG showed a problem with the muscles in my back but nowhere else. I am at a loss...I have been tested and do not have MS.
