3 months ago I have a heavy couple of drinking nights watching the world cup.
1st night about 18-20units
1 night off
2nd night 18-20 units
After this I felt like crap for a couple of weeks, I went to the doctors fearing i was dying. I was examined which felt fine to the doctor i had a liver function test and full bloods, white blood slightly high(now 3weeks after binge) all came back perfect, i remember GGT was 23
So i went to work for about 1 month and still felt weak, pain in stomach and perhaps liver ache and bad tempered etc, by this time i had been reading forums about cirrhosis etc and was terrified and not sleeping and having massive anxiety and depression issues.
I went back to the doctors and again had LFT and full bloods(now 10 weeks after binge) all perfect
GGT=19 ALT=20 plateletts=270000 white blood normal etc. They also found I had Gastritis.
Doctors are starting to think its in my head, i pushed for a Ultra Sound and had to go private, this came back all normal, smooth, no hypertension signs etc.
My drinking besides this binge has been around 20-40 units a week for 10 years ish, sometimes none, months off etc, weeks off sometimes. I have always eaten pretty good, 3 meals a day, veg etc
it is nearly 3 months now and obviously I have had no alcohol since, im feeling better very slowly and had a bout of yellow stools that has now cleared and been fine for several weeks. But i just cant shake the fear that im about to die from liver damage in the middle of the street of something, im becoming reclusive and want to stay in my flat. Im aware that people can have serious issues with good LFTs and Ultra sound, how common is this? I have read some proper horror stories on the forums!
