Yes: Not sure what is going on, could be as simple as dehydration but given the fact that you are pregnant, it is not worth guessing. Go to the er now!

Yes: Pancreatitis can be severe and can also be associated with bleeding. This in combination with anemia of pregnancy could be causing your fatigue you should be evaluated by a physician and possibly a maternal-fetal specialist.
Dr. Stuart Sherman
Gastroenterology 45 years experience
Yes: Without knowing the complete history, you likely had gallstone pancreatitis. This can be serious and even lead to death of some pancreas tissue and tissue around the pancreas. This is best seen on IV contrasted ct scan. Because of the radiation of a ct scan, i suspect you did not get one. In this setting fatigue and dizzyiness may be due to bleeding/anemia and infection with lower blood pressure.
