Is it possible to have normal sgpt/sgot with fibrosis/cirosis

Is it possible to have normal sgpt/sgot with fibrosis/cirosis.

i have chronic hepatitis B and i am on entacavir for the last 10 months with hbv dna<20iu/ml for the past 5 months.
off late i am getting a weird sensation on my right side and am wondering if its got anything to do with my Hep-B status.

all my LFT parameters are normal
last ultrasound in march was also normal

Also my diagnostic lab has this new blood test called enhanced liver fibrosis test (ELF),was wondering how accurate is this test.

fibroscan is better, more statistical studies on it
