Forgot to mention.. my lymph nodes are swollen in my neck. And they're quite painful. Also, my last ribs on both sides (the 'floating' ribs) are really tender.
I'd ask the doctor for a referral to a liver specialist rather than accept that he doesn't know, he needs to send you to someone who DOES know like a Heptologist or a Gastroentrologist. You want to get to the bottom of those raising enzymes.
Stay away from alcohol if you drink and any medications you can do without, they can both raise enzymes. Have they done an ultrasound? A liver biopsy?Are you overweight?
almost sounds as if your being poisioned.
what could possibly be poisioning you, perhaps deisel exsaust, mercury, lead, something your eating, were you tested for lyme desease.did you get a new job in a new building? sick building syndrome, like formaldihyde poisioning, all that plastic , new carpeting? do you work at a dry cleaner? do you work with chemicals?
do you eat a lot of something not healthy like soft drinks? or eat at resturaunts a lot?
think of un obviouse things too.
hope that helps.
Have they done an ultrasound?
Yes, I had one recently when I had pancreatitis.
A liver biopsy?
Are you overweight?
Nope. Slightly underweight.
I most definitely need a new Gastroentrologist. Even my Internal Medicine doctor said gee, yeah, your liver enzymes being high is sort of like a fever, we know it's indicative of something but we don't know what... I'll see you in 6 months. Great.
It's funny brtammy mentioned being poisoned.. My blood tested high in arsenic, but the doc said that arsenic passes from your blood quickly so it had to have been a recent exposure. Except, I have been avoiding all tap water, fish, chemicals etc, for months. I eat 100% organic, drink glass bottled reverse osmossis water, live in an older home without any new upgrades. It's a mystery where I got the arsenic from. If I didn't know better I'd suspect my husband. ;O)
