I have had so many problems this year it almost seems that its not one thing but the next. I find these sites, the (IBS) as well so good, as we have all been forced to see so called experts that fob us off most of the time. I work in the field of mental health and If i am told once more that things are all in my head. Arrh hello, Im in hospital with bleeding ulcers, Fatty Liver disease, IBS, SIBO, insomnia and the images don't lie. 'Oh bleeding ulcers cannot be caused by mental stress, Sir' ' Ok, so whats causing them given I am not a smoker, drinker and HP negative' ' Oh you must be taking NSAID's Sir' 'No' , ' Oh well we dont know then'.
Anyway sorry for the rant. I am going through my bloods since the start of my year from hell, and trying to work out why my LFT's were raised in the first place ( I had to do my own research, which resulted in a biopsy and fatty liver diagnosis) Has anyone out there ever started on SSRI's ie Zooloft and maybe antidepressants Mirtzapine etc and then seen raised LFTS, ie ALT,AST,GGT, Alk Phos. Others liver functions see ok, Alburin etc etc.
Of course the experts tell me that SSRI's or any antidepressants cannot and would not do this. But at that time I was not on any other medications, so trying to work out what spiked them., no drink, drugs etc. I have since changed my diet and lifestyle to start bringing the LFTs down in an effort to arrest NAFLD, and will get another scan in 2 months, but still want to know why my LFT's were possibly elevated over the very period I was on the SSRI's, PPI's and Mirtzapine. Sorry for the length of this post, I just find other forum members know so much, and in my opinion offer real insight to real experiences. At least you get some answers here. Thank you
