I've been having right mid back pain since 6/2013. I went to my doctor for it shortly after it started. I was told that it seemed like a muscle strain. After many appointments, a MRI, CT scan w/o contrast, and x-rays that showed constipation and gas, I was told by my GI physician that it appears to be IBS. Mind you that my amylase has increased from 160 to 185 within a matter of months. My lipase is within range, on the lower range or normal. I sometimes get a sharp pain in my right mid back when I move a certain way and then I'm left with a dull ache that lasts for days. Ibuprofen, muscle relaxers, and heat seem to help sometimes.
I haven't lost any weight, but I have hypothyroidism. My appetite is normal. The only problems I have are the elevated amylase and pain. I've been concerned that the pain is pancreatic since it first started. Any thoughts?
