Some of you will remember me from before when I was especially concerned about my liver / overall health due to a 25 year history of (mainly) social drinking and then my AST and GGT levels were raised in second half of 2015 due to occcasional very heavy binges.
Over the past few weeks, my health has deteriorated again: no appetite, rapid weight loss (down from over 14st to 12-a-half stone inside a month, very dry mouth and extreme thirst with frequent urination, lighter than usual stools (mid-brown rather than dark-brown) and rather messy, abdominal pain and bloating, low energy, insomnia and brain fog. Also, I have achy joints, gums bleed easily when I brush my teeth, and many unexplained bruises, which are increasing.
However, all of the LFTs, blood count and clotting tests have been done several times and are within normal ranges. The only thing that has happened is that the platelets are much lower than they were several months ago - around 200k compared to nearly 400k.
I am convinced I have serious liver disease, but my GPs and hospital doctors say all of the tests are normal.
What can/should I do?
