Hi. This subject is severely doing my head in now.
Two months ago I went to the doctors. I’d had diarrhoea for a few weeks and a severe attack of chest pain. I had tests and my liver function was at 700+
This scared the hell out of me. This was on the Thursday. On the following Monday I had more tests. These had reduced over the weekend to 300+ so would suggest the first tests read a ‘spike’ of alcohol?
I went on a strict diet of fruit, veg, herbal tea fish chicken etc etc etc. Basically nothing that was bad for the liver went down my throat including alcohol.
I was exercising every day. Running 1.2km daily. At my heaviest I was 17st 4lb. Today I weigh 15st 3lb.
I wanted my function ok before I went on holiday so I took another test just before and my results went to 96. Went on holiday. Didn’t go mad but enjoyed myself. I had chest pain again the day I got back and again a week later. I’m suspecting this was gallstones although the pain was crushing in the Center and not to the right. It’s definitely not my heart. My last attack wasn’t as excruciating but it lasted 5 hrs. I continued my diet as I have been doing and again had a blood test a month after my last. My function was back up to 370! I’ve no idea what the hell is going on but surely one or two days of eating tasty food and half a bottle of wine can’t elevate my function up that high so quickly?? I’ve had an ultrasound that confirmed a fatty liver and gallstones/sludge in my gallbladder.
I’ve niggling back ache on my rightside that feels bruised rather than pain. Under my ribs feels bruised rather than pain to touch. If my mind isn’t on it the niggle goes almost. I did have an impact injury back in may in that area so I’m not sure if it’s that or my liver. I’m very frustrated. Can anyone share any experiences or light on this? Thanks, Chris.
