I'm James, I am 29 years old.
When I Was 16, maybe twice a week I'd go to a friends house and we'd hve 4 cane of lager each (4% fosters)
At 17, this turned into maybe 3-4 times a week.
At 18-19, it stopped, and I started drinking wine. 12% wine, often a bottle every other night.
between 20-26, I'd drink I reckon on average 4 cans a day, every day. Maybe 5 at weekends.
26-29, around three pints a day.
I've never needed alcohol and could stop drinking at any moment without issue
I've never had a single symptom (apart from bad guts after too much beer the next morning)
Recently, my stomach looks bloated, whereas i've always been really thin
I'm also worried I may have a couple of small brown patches on the whites of my eyes, which are otherwise white, albeint a bit bloodshot
The skin on the back of my hands is a dry but not itching or flaking
It's only since doing a bit of research, i've thought - God - all of these symptoms point to liver damage
Do you think I've damaged my liver? Can my GP help?
I was thinking of a roadshow for the love your liver campaign in January,I'd have to travel a long way though, I'm worried I will do that and then not be able to be seen...
I'm actually scared stiff, and can't decide if my skin looks jaundiced or not
My parents laughed when I Said it... but I'm seriously worrried I've done some really serious liver damage
I'm feeling to scared to go get checked..
My girlfriend tells me I'm obsessed and that I have nothing to worry about and probably most people drank that in their 20s, and just slow down to safe limits for my 30ss.
