But there is constant back pain. He is also getting treatment for Cholesterol and blood sugar. Could you please let me know is the back pain due to pancreatitis as all his reports are clear and recently he under went pancreatitis cancer blood test too but reports were normal so what could be the reason of his constant back pain.

Pancreatitis itself is a cause of back pain and abdominal pain.
Pseudocyst with secondary infection can also cause the same.
If acute pancreatitis progresses to chronic stage, obstruction of the pancreatic duct can lead to pain.

Since pancreas is the source of insulin, patients with...

I think I have pancreatitis. It flared up suddenly about a week to ten days ago. I thought it was the flu. It gets better if I don t eat; then gets worse if I do eat. I have had this before...and just get sent home form the Emergency Room. If it is Chronic Pancreatitis, will it show up on any medical tests? Or only if it is acute pancreatitis? I don t have a ride to the ER; should I look for one, or call an ambulance. I also have chills, weakness, and now am getting spaced out, e.g unable to concentrate.
