Possible liver problem

Posted , 5 users are following.

I have been ill for 10 months, most of my symptoms have gone apart from nausea, lack of appetite, abdominal pain and fatigue.

I have been to the doctors about my stomach and prescibed omeprazole twice which reduces stomach acid ( this was meant for my inflammation to go down) however after this long it should be better and its not. Im now considering that there is something wrong with my liver. has anyone experienced this with glandular fever? Its a bit scary reading about it onlinesad if i didnt have tummy problems id be a lot better.

    Hello, I doubt it’s liver but if you  want to put yourself mind at ease, ask your doctor for an LFT (liver function test). It’s a blood sample that they analyze for specific liver enzymes that can tell you if your liver is ok or something wonky is going on.

    Hi Maisie,

    It took me 10 months to really see a turning point in the virus, God helped me start to get better from that point - really want to reassure you that things will still get better, for some it can take longer than others, praying a breakthrough is on its way for you Maisie, I really believe that it is.

    My blood tests showed my liver being slightly off at times during the virus, and I have read this with other folk too - so I think that can be a common symptom of mono but it returned to normal as I got better and want to reassure that this can be normal - of course do check in with the doc always wise to do that, but hang in there and hoping these awful symptoms settle down I know you must be so weary sad

    Thinking of you and believing 100% you are going to make a FULL recovery, trusting God absolutely with that!

      Hey Maisie,

      That is good that they have done these blood tests, you did the right thing by persisting with that, it shouldn't be such a fight to get these things it frustrates me so much!! Really hoping the results can offer reassurance and encouragement, rubbish you have to wait for 4 weeks but try and put it out of your head for now (easier said than done I know), you've done everything you can and just focus on one day at a time!!

      Thinking of you and still believing you are going to get better FULLY, 100% believing that for you Maisie, even if it seems far away right now, it IS going to happen I truly truly believe that God is working in you.
