Ibuprofen For Pancreatitis

Let’s discuss Ibuprofen for pancreatitis. I take it for acute pancreatitis, only acute pancreatitis. If you have chronic pancreatitis you may want to try taking Ibuprofen for pancreatitis daily but ask your doctor if it is safe to take with your current drug regimen.

Ibuprofen for pancreatitis is simply common sense but it is NOT a safe drug. Actually there are no safe drugs. A Big Pharma company could take something as safe as vitamin C and create a drug that would kill you so anytime you are dealing with a Big Pharma drug there is risk.

Ibuprofen For Pancreatitis – Risk vs Benefit

With acute pancreatitis there is risk as well, a lot of risk. Risk that it will escalate in to necrotizing pancreatitis (necrosis with infection), organ failure, bleeding, shock and/or death. Severe acute pancreatitis with complications poses a mortality risk of up to 30%.

There is also risk with Ibuprofen for pancreatitis and you need to be aware of the risk.

Why I Use Ibuprofen for Acute Pancreatitis?

I use Ibuprofen for acute pancreatitis because the risks are definitely outweighed by the benefits. The biggest benefit is that 800 milligrams of Ibuprofen will stop an acute pancreatitis attack where NOTHING else but other NSAIDs (aspirin, naproxen, etc) will.

When you cut out all the medical bullshit acute pancreatitis boils down to this …

Ibuprofen-for-acute-pancreatitis-inflammationInflammation.

Nothing that the medical community does in the ER stops an acute attack within 90 minutes.

It takes them days!

They are slower than shit going up a rough tree!

They first try to determine whether or not you are having an acute attack. That is assuming you have already been there done that, have the pancreatitis hall of pain t-shirt and they (your local ER team) have actually recognized acute pancreatitis before and it is in your records. So while they are fiddle-fuckin’ around trying to determine what’s wrong your pancreas is eating itself and you are sustaining damage. Now…

When they come to the conclusion you are having another acute pancreatitis attack they do what?

They give you an opiate for pain.

Opiates only “mask” the pain.  What is worse is that opiates are a known CAUSE of acute pancreatitis. And doctors give opiates for pancreatitis pain? Go figure huh?

So IF they work how do opiates work?

They trick your brain!

Yep, opiates trick the brain into believing you don’t hurt and most will take you on a pleasure cruise to exotic locations, or so I have heard.  Frankly …

Demerol didn’t do shit for me, no pain relief, no pleasure cruise.

The sad thing, like I said a couple sentences up, is that opiates also CAUSE acute pancreatitis.

That is fact!  But …

Even IF the opiates work for you “masking” the pain is not even close to the same thing as dealing with the inflammation, by using an anti-inflammatory drug like Ibuprofen for pancreatitis, which when eliminated also eliminates the pain.

ibuprofen-for-pancreatitisWhy does eliminating the inflammation with Ibuprofen for pancreatitis also relieve the pain?

In the case of pancreatitis, eliminating the inflammation deactivates the enzymes. You see those enzymes are NOT suppose to activate until they reach your small intestine. However when your pancreas becomes inflamed, for whatever reason, those enzymes (trypsin) can activate early while still inside the pancreas. The inflammation causes the enzyme activation. And …

That is why once the inflammation is resolved, by using Ibuprofen for pancreatitis, the enzymes deactivate, they quit devouring your pancreas and the pain disappears. Read a previous post what happens during an acute pancreatitis attack

Anti-inflammatories are considered to be minor to moderate pain relievers because they relieve headache pain, arthritis pain and so on but the reason they work in those conditions is because they eliminate or relieve inflammation. The pain in those conditions is caused by inflammation as well so when an anti-inflammatory is used to eliminate the inflammation the pain resolves. In the case of Ibuprofen for pancreatitis larger doses are required than are those usually taken for joint pain and headaches.

Pancreatitis pain can be mild.

Pancreatitis pain can be moderate. But …

When demerol (used for moderate to severe pain) won’t even take the EDGE off the pain I wouldn’t call that minor or moderate pain, would you?

Doctors treat symptoms.

I prefer to go after the CAUSE because …

While the ER doc is shooting your ass up with pain meds to treat your pain your pancreatic enzymes are still chewing up your pancreas. The inflammation is still there. It has NOT been addressed! In fact the opiates can cause MORE inflammation and CAUSE another bout of acute pancreatitis. An anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen for pancreatitis makes more sense.

Oh sure, doctors have figured out that you should not eat and so they take away your food.

Whoopie!

Any moron could conclude that fact, since ingesting food tells the pancreas to produce enzymes, and then when your pain resolves 2 – 5 days later they want you to bow, pay homage and do the happy dance because they saved your life. Your pancreas is frickin fried and almost useless but hey they stopped your pain and saved your life! They are like …

… gods!

NOT!

They are imbiciles!

They let your pancreas devour itself.

IF they had the brains God gave a goose they would have figured out that anti-inflammatories such as Ibuprofen for pancreatitis were indeed the answer!

WHY? (I hear you asking)

So we’ll cover it again.

What Is Pancreatitis?

Did you say inflammation of the pancreas? (Correctamundo!)

What eliminates inflammation?

Did you say anti-inflammatory type medications? (Correctamundo!)

See! Did you notice that this pancreatitis pain and inflammation issue isn’t really a difficult dilemma such as solving quantum teleportation?! But …

There is the issue of money.

IF you knew that $.30 worth of Ibuprofen for pancreatitis would accomplish more than a $1500.00 – $10,000.00 ICU visit which would you choose?

Exactly! And …

I would hate to think that money, cash flow, cabbage, bread, c-notes, ben franklins could be the reason doctors do not tell you about Ibuprofen for pancreatitis or other anti-inflammatory medications but money (or it’s loss) may be exactly why you don’t know about the fact that Ibuprofen will stop an acute pancreatitis attack.

Hell, I don’t sell Ibuprofen.

I have no vested interest in telling you about Ibuprofen for pancreatitis and how I stop my acute pancreatitis attacks. Ok, sure …

Ibuprofen-for-pancreatitis-snake-oil-salesIf you buy some grape seed or curcumin and or other products I might make $.44 (44 cents)  up to a whole $1 or $2 IF you really get extravagant and buy several bottles but do the math!

At about $.44 per bottle I’d have to sell 500 bottles per day to make any kind of money! And trust me on this it ain’t even CLOSE! I think my record day has been like 5 bottles, wow, $2.20!

$2.20 EVERY day would barely buy my coffee! But …

I ain’t doing this for money which is a good thing cuz I’d starve! So …

IF any of you reading this Ibuprofen for pancreatitis blog post THINK I’m just a snake oil salesman trying to take advantage of some desperate people well …

You need to think again because this is NOT my dream, lotto winning, money niche.

I have pancreatitis.

I know what the pain of pancreatitis is like and I hate to see people suffer more than they actually need to or be butched by some surgeon IF it could have been prevented with $.30 (30 cents) worth of Ibuprofen for pancreatitis! So …

IF you think for one minute I am simply trying to take advantage of your pain and suffering you, my friend, can kiss my white ass and go somehwere hot!

The FDA can kiss my white ass!

The FTC can kiss my white ass as too!

I stumbled upon what works for me which is to say God showed me what works and I am simply passing it along so that you may have the knowledge of Ibuprofen for pancreatitis as well.

I can tell you this, the night I was in an excruciating acute pancreatitis attack and the demerol didn’t do shit and I started rumaging through the medicine cabinet and found my wife’s 800mg Motrin tablets and they said “take for pain” and I was in PAIN and after taking one I was no longer in pain that …

When I told Dr. Langdon what traspired he was dang sure O.K. with writing a script for me so that I could continue using Ibuprofen for pancreatitis! But then he was one cool and very good doctor. But …

There is risk with Ibuprofen for pancreatitis and similar NSAIDs.

We’ve already covered those risks.

Aspirin is an alternative which seems to work as well as Ibuprofen for pancreatitis.

Aspirin is somewhat different because unlike Ibuprofen aspirin doesn’t cause heart attacks where Ibuprofen has been known to do so. Aspirin can and does cause bleeding in some people, so does Ibuprofen and this can be life threatening as well. But …

Again the risk is small when using Ibuprofen for pancreatitis and it seems to work a tad better than aspirin (I’ve tried 1300 milligrams of aspirin); however, if you have an adverse reaction from either Ibuprofen (or another NSAID) or aspirin please remember I have told you it could happen and I have also told you that if you do what I do – you do it at your own risk.

If you should die please don’t tell me because I will feel absolutely horrible.

I have no idea why God showed me the way.

I have no idea why he saved me (even the doc said I should have been dead) because ..

I’m an asshole.

I’ve been an asshole my whole life. But …

He helped me find Dr. Langdon who listened and had the brains to recognize my condition and confirm it via tests. He helped me discover Ibuprofen. He led me to white, unsweetened grapefruit juice which actually stopped my acute pancreatitis attacks and by that I mean – they just stopped after I started drinking grapefruit juice. Then …

He helped me discover grape seed and curcumin and put together my regimen that along with my diet (which God also helped with – I mean who would think of doing enemas to completely cleanse their system before starting their food diary?) allowed me to actually heal.

So why me when so many others have so much more damage and are in so much more pain?

I don’t have a clue.

I can think of tons of reasons why He should have simply let me die a very painful death but did He?

No!

He saved me.

He had His Angels protect me.

He showed me how to survive and now …

I’m passing what He taught me along to you.

I could care less where you buy your grapefruit juice, grape seed extract, curcumin, vitamin C, pancreatic enzymes, multi-vitamin/mineral formula or Ibuprofen (advil, motrin). Get them at your local health store or your grocery store or where ever, just get them and try them.

Use my supplement cocktail coupled with Ibuprofen for pancreatitis to stop an acute pancreatitis attack.

Use my diet and daily regimen to heal.

Avoid all dubious information on the net, especially if they ask you to buy some frickin’ book they wrote after their father died of pancreatitis. IF they knew what I know their father may still be alive and well! And …

free-Ibuprofen-for-pancreatitis-informationMy info is frickin’ FREE! You can spend all day at my sites, learn everything you need to know and the info won’t cost you a damn dime.

A few of you who follow my info have said I should write a book.

I don’t want to write a book and get paid.

God didn’t charge me.

He GAVE me everything.

The least I can do is to try to return His kindness in the same fashion.

I would like to know if the info helps you. If you find releif or better yet healing; I’d like to know. I don’t want a bunch of rah, rah …

I just would like to know if you feel better. And …

If you do, thank and praise God, not me.

Try Ibuprofen for pancreatitis and my cocktail for resolution of your next acute pancreatitis attack and try to have a pain free day!

    wow, i’m so glad I found your site and info. I started having my attack of what I’ve been thinking was a gallbladder one a few days ago. I also stumbled onto Motrin.
    Even though folks on the web said nothing touched their gallbladder pain, I noticed the ibuprofen did. It took it away in about 30-45 min. Today I’ve been in bed trying not
    to take it though, thinking it would mask a fever or more pain which i assumed was from my gallbladder. Anyway, now I think that possibly i have a case of Pancreatitis,
    after reading through your blog. Don’t know if I’ll still get an ultrasound soon to rule out stones…not sure. What started my horrible pain was eating a huge pile of sunflower
    seeds several days ago. Have you heard of that causing Pancreatitis?? Thanks for everything:)

      Ibuprofen works wonders for pain caused by inflammation. The pain is relieved when the inflammation subsides. I was kinda led to it I think anyway, I am glad it worked for you.

      Gallbladder disease and pancreatitis have some commonalities.

      Both are triggered by fat. Sunflower seeds are FULL of fat. It may be good fat for most people but those with gallbladder disease or pancreatitis shouldn’t eat them or at least not more than a VERY SMALL mouthful on occasion. So yes, sunflower seeds could definitely have been the trigger or at least the straw that broke the camel’s back so to speak. Don’t get me wrong. Sunflower seeds do NOT CAUSE pancreatitis but they could certainly trigger AP (acute pancreatitis) in those who already have pancreatitis and they could also trigger a gallbladder attack which could and does CAUSE pancreatitis if a stone gets stuck in or near the pancreatic duct.

      Alcohol doesn’t bother the Gallbladder but can throw the pancreas into a real hissy fit. Symptoms can be somewhat similar as well especially if your gallbladder is infected but by and large the pain of acute pancreatitis is severe to extreme and CONSTANT. It can bore from front to back and visa versa. Lying down usually makes the pain worse. The patient usually, involuntarily, leans forward because it seems to help relieve the severity of the pain somewhat. The pain is so severe it becomes hard to breathe and so I find myself taking fast, short breaths (panting like a damn dog on a hot august day). You usually stream sweat, can run a fever. Nausea and vomiting can be really bad for some people and vomiting doesn’t relieve acute pancreatitis pain where I know people who have had gallbladder disease have said they puke and feel better. And with acute pancreatitis things can go from bad to worse in a heart beat (necrosis, infection, bleeding, organ failure and death). Now …

      An infected gallbladder is nothing to take lightly either because that puppy can rupture which causes peritonitis. Peritonitis can be life threatening. If your gallbladder is full of stones those can pass causing the gallbladder attack and/or infection if they get stuck and a stuck gallstone can also cause gallstone pancreatitis (most common causes are stones and alcohol consumption).

      It may be to late now to get a good enzyme reading from a blood draw but if you are still hurting and it is pancreatitis amylase and lipase may still be elevated if you hurry. They can stay elevated up to a week I believe after an attack that resolves.
