Had all bloods done all perfect had pipes up and down nothing but gastritis had liver scan yrly nothing wrong.8yrs on i have liver pains on & off badly up my back my glands are up all over my body mood swings foggy brain&im exhausted,my stools are yellow & i have diarrhea alot and i cant now digest fats or milks my feet and body hurts think its irritable bowel but i can feel its my liver it hurts constantly like an ache with a stab up my back

I'm very healthy in my body eating etc&i'm part of a cycling team.(last 6wks im so tired i feel like im dying) i have not had a drink in 9yrs or smoked for 26yrs,only painkillers i have ever taken are paracodol.i have a appt this friday to try and ask doc for a fibroscan or ct.normal scan says my gallbladder is superb...any help would be much appreciated as i have no life like this.
