Hey so I was wondering if you ladies are taking painkillers do any of you have problems with your liver / or think you may do?
I was wondering because a few years back, when was taking lots of paracetamol for period pains, I had a liver test and a liver ultrasound which docs said I had an enlarged liver due to the painkillers. They said if I reduced the amount I take the liver problem should resolve itself. I've been taking less until about a year ago when the period pains got really bad (now I know it's endo) when I've needed to take more as work need me to be in. I'm currently on just ibuprofen and paracetamol together for four to seven days around my period, so I can manage the pain and be in work. But am worried about how all this will be broken down and affect my liver?
Is it just paracetamol that's really bad? I don't want to go to the gp for my pain to be given stronger ones that could be worse. Do you think I could ask for regular liver tests?
