I know this is an impossible question to answer but could anyone answer whether they think I have severe liver damage?
I am 31, female, and for the past 6 months I have been drinking at least a bottle of wine a day, often 1 1/2-2.
Prior to that I didn't drink for 18 months.
Before that, I would regularly heavily binge at weekends and could never tolerate alcohol always drinking too excess.
I started drinking around 17, so that's almost 15 years of this pattern.
I went to the doctors last week as I have been having some very worrying symptoms - pins and needles on hands and feet, sweating, itchy, broken sleep, weight gain.
She did blood test to check liver function.
Since Friday I have also had pale stools, and my eyes look very slightly tinged yellow.
I am petrified. I have a young child and cannot function due to worry awaiting results which I was told I will receive on Friday.
Is there any way to determine the chances that I have severe liver disease?
I have stopped drinking and just cannot believe I might have done this to myself when I have such important responsibilities. I'm totally beside myself with worry.
