I'll be seeing my cardiologist tomorrow anyway, but I thought I'd run this by you all, in case anyone has experienced this...
For the past 3 weeks or so, I have had approximately weekly bouts with upper abdominal pain (left, right, and center, but most tender in the center) that radiates around to my lower back (both sides). No nausea or vomiting, no diarrhea, no significant gas. BP and pulse normal. The first two times it came on fairly abruptly after eating something about 10pm at night (different food each time), and last night, although I ate some soup at about 10pm, the pain didn't come on until 5am. It's not quite as bad as the other times but the symptoms are the same. The first two times I was doubled over for about 8-12 hours. Today, it's been 3 hours and hasn't let up yet.
I'm on Crestor, fenofibrate, metoprolol, and aspirin. I took fenofibrate years ago with none of these symptoms. Think it could be the Crestor or a combination? The fenofibrate has really (and suddenly) reduced my LDL and triglycerides, so if I go off of that, I'm back to square one.
I've also lost weight over the past 4 months or so, about 15 lbs--down to 135lbs. I do get some exercise, but not an inordinate amount. And my appetite (when I'm not in pain) is normal. Any thoughts?
