Hello Ive just found this site and would like advice please.
For some time Ive felt unwell, I went to see my GP and started to tell him about my symptoms, I only got to bad headaches and he arranged for an MRI scan. I told him but I have other symptoms he said " stop there, we will deal with one at a time" he arranged for blood test. Frustrated he wouldnt listen. I then get a letter to see my GP. Spoke to a nurse who said my livercount was up but in normal range its 30? There was also swelling. She said its nothing, so why get me to see a GP tomorrow. In 2011 it was 20 and signs of swelling, he dismissed it. What 30 is I dont know I will find out tomorrow.
I have headaches, stabbing pains between my shoulderblades, my tummy pushes out on my right side by my ribs and is very hard, then settles dow this can go on through out the day. I feel nausious loss of appetite, fluid arround my ankles, face feels on fire but body hot limbs cold. My fingers go stiff unable to bend ( I had a steroid injection in my thumb 2 weeks ago to realeas it ) I have 2 brown pigments 1 inch and 1/2 appear on my face. I have bright red like pin head spots appear on my arm back and tummy about 8 in all. My personallity has change annoyed, not me at all.very tired and low energy.
Ive searched on Google and all my symptoms match liver disease. How can I get my GP to refer me to a specialist?
Can you still have blood testsin the normal range but have abnormal liver?
I do not drink alcohol, I dont smoke. I am overwheight and can not lose it and have beenon slimming world.
Any advice will be appreciated. Im in the UK
