I'm 37 I've been a heavy binge drinker. Felt very strange a few months ago still feeling drunk well in to the next day and felt pressure around my right abdomen at one point a pulsing sensation around my abs. I went to see the doctor and my GGT was 247 don't remember the other scores the doctor scared me but thought I would recover as I'm still young. I thought I had alcoholic hepatitis but the doctor said I didn't. The liver pains went away after 3 or 4 weeks. I went back to the doctor 6 weeks later my GGT was 87 and my bilrubin was normal. The doctor seemed positive and said it might be worth another test. I was supposed to go back in 4 weeks.
I'd lost a lot of weight been exercising and eating well. I was feeling great. Stupidly I started drinking again only a few beers and with 4 days in between and then the last few times I had 7 or 8 beers. I was horrified to see I'd drank 5 times in March after I'd promised the doctor and myself I was done. I stupidly thought I could go back to drinking just cut down.
It's 2 weeks since I last drank and I've been experiencing pain on my right side a little worse than before. Also worryingly some right shoulder ache. Most worrying I had 3 days of feeling very woozy and light headed and a few episodes of feeling fatigued.
Today the pain was almost non existent but I felt fatigued for most of the day. I've got a blood test on Wednesday. I'm pretty pessimistic about it. I feel like I've really let myself down. I'm thinking I probably have cirrhosis. Before I felt incredibly anxious freaking out but full of energy now I feel very defeated and depressed. I guess I just wanted to share I feel pretty low right now.
