Liver damage?

Posted , 5 users are following.

2 months ago on February 02, 2017 I made a terrible decision. The night before February 1st I had drank 11 beers and the night before that, 7. I'm feb 2nd I took 2, 500 mg acetaminophen pills and one naproxen tablet. That night I got terrible abdominal pain. About 2 weeks later the abdominal pain went away, but things still aren't back to normal. I am nearly constantly itchy, my feet are always cold, I get a bad taste in mouth, my heart rate is at 88 all of the time, I am experiencing tingling in my arms and legs in certain position, and have had a terrible acne breakout on my face. Anyways I got liver function tests done 3 times and everything has came back normal. I am 18 years old. I think I have little time left, does anyone have any thoughts? I havent gotten jaundice, and no fluid hypertension. Thank you

    If no-one comes in with better suggestions, I would drink masses of water to try to flush out your system. AND not drink anything else (no sweetened drinks, no tea, no coffee). I would also switch to a mostly vegetable diet to place less strain on your organs. But I am no expert.  I had liver disease and still have kidney disease and the advice for the kidneys is to drink at least 3 pints of water a day (which I find quite hard): some others apparently manage to drink 3 litres of water a day !  I feel sorry for your predicament, everyone makes mistakes some time in their lives. The important thing is not to repeat mistakes !  I think the fact that your liver results have come back as normal is great news and wish you well.

    I agree as mad as it sounds there's not a symptom you have mentioned that couldn't be put down to anxiety, what does your Dr think

    My doctor did think that it could be anxiety related, however I am a bit convinced I messed something up. Could it be the possibility that the lft wasn't accurate?
