So sorry for the delay. I didn't expect you to answer so quickly!
Those are all the specialists I've seen.
The GI specialist had no opinion on the liver. He basically said "it's not GI, so I don't know."
I have never had any liver test.
I had a few ultrasounds. One for gall bladder, GI and one for heart. No CT, xray or MRI.
Symptoms started 3 years ago. It's been a battle. The only significant event before it was a very bad case of strep throat about 1.5 months before symptoms started. I took a lot of antibiotics and Tylenol during that time. It was also a very stressful time in my life.
I get IBS-like symptoms. When I get bloated, the pain is much, much worse. Basically, anything that jogs the area hurts. Exercise, poking at it, bloating, deep breathing. And the pain will last for days.
I started taking ibuprofen last fall. I take it once or twice a day.
Actually, I have high bilirubens on my yearly exams. I have not heard of ALT, AST or GGT. Is it possible that he just didn't test for these?
