Hi everyone. I'm new here and have been reading many of your posts.
Over the last few years I have had a series of unexplained ailments which I have been running numerous tests for. During an ultrasound for what I was concerned was a kidney issue (collapsed with body seizing pain in upper/middle right side of back), I was found to have a Fatty Liver. The ultrasound technician had even asked me if I was "gassy" as she could not get a clear image of my kidney for all the gas buildup in my abdomen.
My doctor seemed very complacent and simply told me to watch my diet. I am not overweight, I exercise three to four times a week, I do not drink alcohol at all, and yet I have this. And due to the years of feeling unwell (including chronic migraines) I have now developed a very severe health anxiety, which greatly affects my life and time with my daughters.
I have never had abdominal pain, though I do feel the bloating and swollen belly that was referred to in the ultrasound, I experience unexplained nausea, pale stool, extreme fatigue, and though I'm not sure if it related.... I began waking up with a bloodshot left eye for the past three days! I am worried and honestly afraid that I am further along in my liver damage than my doctor seems to be telling me. And as far as causes, the only thing I can conceive is that it may have been caused due to some migraine medication (antidepressants) that I was taking... but have since stopped.
Has anyone else had similar symptoms that could help me understand at what phase I may be in. I desperately want to reverse this, but I do not know what changes to make, as I currently do all of the recommended fixes... though I have made very strict dietary changes to everything that helps my liver (grapefruit, leafy veggies, green tea, broccoli, low carb, etc). I am trying to stay positive, but I am quite literally in the dark on this.
Has anyone had success reversing it with these symptoms? Please let me know. Thank you very much!
