History intermittent binge drinking one day on one day off over the years with intervals of non drinking. Generally 40 units pw but spiked before in the autumn, often in short time on no food.
Suspicion acute alcoholic hepatitis. Weight loss combined with odd tummy bulge but could have been fat although I'm skinny ..Fever. Possibly very slight jaundice. Bruised easily and cuts that bled lasted a time. Liver swelled. Didn't attend anywhere . Denial and fog,
Ceased drinking week or two later. No detox just stopped no PAWS.
Month later huge liver pain front and rear.HUGE. 3 days later kidney pain which has persisted. Episodic ammonia breath and brain fog. Rectal piles in 2 weeks. Fatty floating stools. By now Ive googled everything bad.
Still daily kidney pain. Ammonia reduced but fluctuates.
I admit to being highly highly anxious i go to GP. Blood tests 6-7 weeks later and ultrasound show zero. Repeats bloods week later zero. GP feels anxiety and Rex anti anxiety meds.
Feels if bloods ok no damage. Requested ref to private hepatologist who is good but says same labs ok = no damage.
Says you can't feel your liver swell or pain from it. Phantom pain.
Ive read numerous class where labs ok but cirrhosis or damage or an I seeing what I might want to see.
No answer to symptoms I'm getting or those in the he autumn i.e. Belly, fever . Admittedly some were vague. Feels I didn't drink enough for Acute alcoholic hep. Says will have no damage. Agreed my anxiety. Refuses me private fibroscan (paying myself) as feels not warrented.
Feel might be decompensated i.e. Swelling and ammonia breath/HE? Portal pressure issue i.e. Piles.
Bile blockage i.e. Stools
What to do?
