Is there any type of neuroendocrine tumor that can cause ileitis?

Is there any type of neuroendocrine tumor that can cause ileitis? I was diagnosed with Hoshimotos encephalitis and my dtr has been suffering and treated for Chrones, but she does not exhibit the typical diagnostic case. I am hoping there may be a correlation somewhere

Hi, my blood pressure has decreased over the last few months and has been quite low in the last few days. My personal trainers were concerned and did an ecg to check heart and blood pressure. Blood pressure was 88/68, ECG was fine. Saw my GP yesterday and it was 110/?? but he said it wasn t too low and recent blood tests showed normal results. I m currently being treated for neuroendochrine tumour so have had lots of diarrhoea in the last few months. I think that may be the cause of the low blood pressure. Oncologist said tumours would not have affected my blood pressure. I am drinking plenty of fluids. The diarrhea is not constant so wondering if I should take some medication to stop the diarrhoea. I normally suffer from constipation and have haemorrhoids.

I m taking a medication called Simivastine for Cholestorol. Recently, I have been having aches and pain all over my body and some back pain, on the left side as well and in the lower back area. I was also diagnosed with a Nureoendocrine tumor, (corcinoid) in my abdomine, and liver area. I read that Simivastine can cause liver problems. I also was taking Amolodipine for many years.

I had herpes encephalitis in 1982 and had a drug that was not approved and was still being tested as I lost my ability to speak. I was at University of Alabama in Birmingham Hospital. The drug was Arra a? not sure of the spelling. I was wondering if if you may know what could be some side effects of the drug 32 years later. thanks

yes thank you. My husband a 43 y.o. male has been hospitalized a second time noe within the last 3 months. the first time they DX him with guillian barre syndrome. they treated with IVIG for 5 consecutive days and then he remained in hospital a total of 9 days until he could walk and then was discharged. this time, s/s started the same as before. N/T in bilateral feet that migrated quickly up to knees and then tohips and then to elbows and wrists. Then intense burning ache in the joints that followed the same progression. MRI show lesions in the brain, none in spinal cord or brain stem. Lumbar puncture showed only elevated proteins (67). they checked for lymes, encephalitis, meningitis.ets... The first time in Novenmber he last all pheripheral reflexes. This time they sre dull only at this point. I am concerned that they are missing something. My husband states the pain is 9/10, and the only meds that help are Neurontin and toradol. Narcotocs and muscle relaxers do not help at all. We questioned CIDP, MS, transverse myelitis, and they have no answers. They havedone another MRI of brain and brain stem/ neck area. We do not know the results yet, and they are questioning whether or not to do another lumbar puncture... I have requested west nile test and tey just ignore me...I have been an RN for 24 years as well.

Hi. My wife recently was diagnosed with encephalitis, sore neck and very bad headaches. After 2 weeks, strong pain killers, anti biotics, immune system vitamins and quarta zone. The headaches went while she was on this medication. As soon as she came off the medication, the headaches are now back, no sore neck however. She visited her Gp this morning and he has now recommended she see a neurologist. Please help! The pain is severe and all this is getting very costly!
