Hi I was diagnosed at 16, I am now 24 and haven't experienced anything since being diagnosed until now.
I struggled with alcohol from 20 until 9 months ago when I 100% quit.
I was prescribed an antibiotic for a bladder infection, then fell terribly ill with gilberts the next day. I was throwing up violently for 3 days and my liver felt like it was the size of a soccer ball. Plus the most tained yellow eyes and a very yellow glow everryyywhere.
The scary part was I could not see straight, even sitting up I would get so dizzy I would start puking again.
I stopped macrobid and replaced with amoxicilin when the symptoms subsides and I am feeling better 2.5 weeks later.
Today the doctor told me they found evidence of fatty liver. I am not near overweight, I am active and healthy. I am a vegan since I quit drinking 9 months ago. So for me it doesn't make sense.
I am awaiting the liver specialist and as we know our minds wander while we wait...
Anybody have any thoughts on if fatty liver could be related to gilberts?
Thanks and my heart to you all.
Gilberts is frustrating
