Spider nevi appeared 3/4 years ago(2/3) attended the docs and shrugged them off as nothing. Left it for 3 years as I totally lost faith but now there getting to me so much I think I’m ill. I went for a full mot blood test few weeks bak including hiv/hepatitis test and liver function test and all came back normal. I then had 2 follow up test one to measure testosterone levels and the other for oestrogen. Background on me - I am 25 years old. Was relatively fit before the spider nevi appeared. Heavy smoker. Non drinker ever. Used to have the odd binge in the past. Used anabolic steroids for a month without doing correct pct hence the reason for doctors testing T levels. This was back years ago after I had a failed relationship after 6 years and a young son I was struggling to see for a while to begin with, this lead me to the steroids and heavy cocaine use but barely ever been much of a drinker. I drink one or 2 and I feel sick. I used cocaine most days for 2 years as I was sofa surfing and in a really bad place. I am beyond all this now focusing on my son and the great relationship we have and I have a really good job so the question I have is : is it possible to have about 20 spider nevi and be totally harmless as all doctors have shrugged this off as fairly normal as blood work etc is normal. I have no symptoms of any liver complications or showing in my blood work other than weight loss but I presume this is down to a really poor diet. I have really bad fatigue and catch colds easily and often tho my results on lft were normal. Hormone levels normal. Urine normal. Hiv and hep A,B&C all negative. Never really had a drink often tho I have had years where I maybe had a drink at the weekends. I used to use sundbeds a lot and as I stated above smoke a lot so could this possible be the reason behind my spider nevi or could this be from using sunbed a frequently as at first we thought it could be liver related as there are so many on my body but lifestyle wouldn’t indicate any serious harm appart from drinking loads of energy drinks which obviously isn’t good and previous cocaine misuse but my first 2 appeared before this started. Can anyone please please help it’s driving me insane I can’t sleep or work and doctors aren’t getting me anywhere. I clearly need help and to get to the bottom of this as it abnormal I used to be so healthy and fit but for the past 3/4 years this has been non existent. My first spider nevi appeared not long after using anabolic steroids for 2 months and have got gradually worse and more volume of them since. Surely 2 months of steroids wouldn’t br enough to do this or cause liver problems. I need some professional help and guidance. I have an appointment next week again to raise my concerns and prompt action but they all seem lost and unable to assist me ? Please someone out there must have or know if someone who has been in a similar situation and can guid me with the facts I stated above! I don’t look unhealthy though my hair is starting to recede bags round eyes as constantly tired and noticeabley skinny due to poor diet not eating enough. Stomach sometimes feels bloated but clearly blood results showed normal levels so this can’t be due to an inflamed liver ?
