Back pain can be troublesome, but there’s mostly a reason it’d be hurting. It could range from a sprain to pancreatitis. How can you tell it’s the latter?
The NHS explained acute pancreatitis describes the condition when the pancreas becomes inflamed (swollen) over a short period of time.
Those with the condition may only feel symptoms for a week, which include nausea, diarrhoea and indigestion.
Other symptoms of acute pancreatitis is a fever, yellowing of the skin and eyes (jaundice) and tenderness or swelling of the stomach.
