Customer: replied 6 years ago.
Symptoms last week were temp of 100 which would come down to just below normal and then back up. Fatigue, slight nausea, overall yuck. for about a week... I had pink eye the week before and a heavy cold for 2 weeks before that. I understand they may not be related.
It felt very much like how it did when i had Lyme about 3 years ago. So doctor tested for that and gall bladder. Lyme came back positive and gall bladder is fine on ultra sound, but they are telling be that the found calcium deposits on liver.
I do not drink, other than wine maybe every 6 weeks at a social function.

-no liver function tests yet
-medication, Advair and pro air

I had Ultra sound today, the doctors assistant called me and said "your gal bladder is clear, but they saw some calcium deposits on your liver, so the doctor would like you to have a CT"
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 6 years ago.
Calcium deposits under these circumstances can be from old scarring, old infection, liver cyst [usually harmless]....
The CT should better define the cause.
Let me know if you have further questions.
Good luck
