I’ve had signs of portal hypertension, I was getting a squeezing sensation in my upper right abdominal area and my heart was beating fast in my ears. Had this over a few days around 5 days ago. Went to docs who refused to do anymore blood tests because I had some done a few weeks ago and had ultrasounds a few months ago so not taking any further. A few days ago i went into a state of confusion where I wasn’t coherent, I had HE, I was drifting in and out of a semi conscious state. an Ambulance was called, I managed to tell them eventually that I thought it was HE butmy partner told them ive had liver bloods and ultrasound done and all was ok but I suffer from PTSD and had mental health issues. I went to a and e and asked them to test for my ammonia levels when I’d come around and was more coherent. Instead they refused to do blood tests and called the mental health team. They think I’m having a breakdown but it’s my liver. I’ve never experimented anything like it. They are refusing to investigate my liver further as my last bloods etc were fine.
Since the portal hypertension symptoms, I have had a gradual buildup of fluid in my tummy and legs, the fluid on my tummy isn’t it’s not hard but getting bigger every day. My kidneys at the back are hurting too. They said it wasn’t Ascites as it wasn’t hard. My wee is brown and there’s been blood in my stools, my fingers have clubbed and I have spider veins on my breasts too as well as muscle twitches. went to a and e again yesterday who just called mental health team. Nobody is listening to me and my symptoms, they think I’m going mad. I know I have cirrhosis but the hospital are not giving me a CT Scan or checking my ammonia levels because they said cirrhosis would have shown up on ultrasound! I really need some help because they are thinking my mental health issues are the root cause when I’m seriously getting all of these symptoms. I keep getting bouts of confusion but everyone thinks it’s my mental health and ITS SERIOUSLY NOT. I have mild PTSD, never been like this. Nobody will help me and nobody is listening. I feel like I’m been left to die as nobody believes me because of my mental health issues! I don’t feel like I’ve got long and nobody will do anything!! Please help
