Worried about my liver

Posted , 4 users are following.

hello, ive started getting tenderness and pain around my liver area. this is accompanied by vomiting and this morning a pale coloured stool. on tuesday i noticed a purple bruise on my right calf but do not remember banging it. my right calf also feels a bit stiff and harder to touch than the left. a little worried this could be down to liver problems. i have taken a couple of overdoses in the past when i was very low. image
