Hi ,I am a 25 year old male and have been experiencing wandering abdominal pain along with shortness of breath. My doctor just told me i have high liver enzymes and is sending me for an ultrasound which is 4 months away. I cant sleep or concentrate any thoughts as far as possible diagnosis? Thank you

  • There are many things that can cause elevated lft's. Eating bad food and mono are just 2 of many things. I would try not to worry to much. I know that is easier said then done, but I have been in your shoes. The liver is our largest organ and it can take ALOT. Are you having any symptoms at all? Jaundice, fatigue, fever, nausea or diarreah?

  • I feel almost constant pains in abdomen, along the sides but upper left quadrant is the worst,especially when sitting. Also feels swollen right at bottom of belly. I have a hard time exhaling,it feels constricted, I often cough on exhale in order to make it more comfortable. I sometimes also feel a pulsating in my abdomen on both sides. Any thoughts would be much appreciated
