Info About Acute Pancreatitis

When the pancreas becomes inflamed, the condition is called pancreatitis. There are two different types: acute and chronic. Acute pancreatitis is typically caused by gallstones or drinking too much alcohol. This condition usually comes on suddenly, lasts for a short time, and then goes away. However, some people may experience attacks throughout their life.
 
Possible symptoms of acute pancreatitis can include pain in the upper part of the stomach. This pain can be sudden and intense, or it may be mild and occur after food is eaten. Other symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, and fever.
