I had a lot abdominal pain and the blood test results for my liver were at 72?

About two years ago I had a lot abdominal pain and the blood test results for my liver were at 72 and should have been around 15. I had a scan but they could not see my liver Cleary as I have a high diaphragm and by chance they saw a lump in my gallbladder. They forgot about my liver issue and concentrated on gall bladed which has now been removed and the biopsy was all clear. I assumed everything else was okay but the past 4 weeks I have been having slight abdominal pains but what I am more concerned about is that I have been getting shooing pains in my legs and arms and also the back of my calves have been burning. In addition have been very tired and falling asleep in the day. I have been to the doctors for more blood tests and my folate is low but my liver reading is 79, which is very high, I don’t drink alcohol or smoke. The shooting pains and burning sensation my not be related to the liver issue. She has not give me any indication what could be wrong but send me for another scan. what if it is something really bad and it has got worse over the two years? I am only 32 and have 4 kids and just want to be okay. Any thoughts would be really welcomed.

Hi
The high liver test was it SGOT or SPOT?
Did you check for virus c?
Feeling sleepy can be liver related, the arms and legs pain can be kidney related so I recommend checking your kidney as well
Good Luck

HI,
AS U SAID,LEG PAIN AND BURNING IS SURELY NOT RELATED TO THE LIVER.
IF THE LEVELS ARE HIGH EVEN NOW,THEN THERE ARE CHANCES,THAT SOMETHING MIGHT HAVE GONE UNNOTICED IN LAST 2 YEARS OR IT MAY BE A FRESH ISSUE UNRELATED TO THE PAST ILLNESS.
BUT WHATEVER THE CASE,YOU SHOULD NOT WORRY AS THERE ARE REMEDIES FOR IT.
GET A SCAN AND DECIDE THE FURTHER LINE OF TREATMENT

The liver function tests are not that high , beside , I recommend u to do full check up, CBC, thyroid profile, kidney function tests,
It could be hepatitis A infection , u can test for it

A bout the shooting pain in the legs, u need to undergo neurological and musckloskeletal examination to rule out any serious suspects

Hi..
Thanks for the query..

First of all please upload your investigation reports and also get other investigation done like Hemogram, Renal function test, Vitamin B 12 levels, potassium, calcium and sodium levels done..
Burning and tingling sensation in hands and legs with pain can be due to Peripheral Neuropathy..

Get proper evaluation done so that appropriate treatment can be advised..

Hope this helps..
