Suggest treatment for chronic pancreatitis

I have a history of chronic pancreatitis. I had a nerve block a year ago. For the past week or so I ve had black stools and for the past 24 hrs have been lightheaded upon standing and weak and dizzy walking. I started blood pressure medicine about six weeks ago and it was fine until yesterday when it was coming up lower than usual 100/61..I thought maybe it was medicine but couldn t stay awake long enough to call him.
