For the last couple of months I've been having bowel problems, soft stools after a treatment with antiobiotics and acetaminophen for bronchitis,I had diarrhea, yellow colour and since then my stools are dark green colour, I have diarrhea alternating with constipation sometimes, and I can see tiny pinpoint size black dots on it.My stomach growls after eating all the time, not only the stomach, but also the liver area, all the abdomen, it goes for ages, I get lots of gas as soon as I eat something. Also I'm developing big dark circles under my eyes and baggy, puffy eyes.I lost lots of weight since.

I was a heavy drinker for 5-6 years, but don't drink at all now.
I went to the doctor, who did a blood test, FLT, total protein and a stool test, all normal. I get bleeding gums when I brush my teeth, but doctor says it's gingivitis, did another test for PT and CBC, clotting disorders, all normal.
I'm worried about liver disease due to the past alcohol intake as I know you can have cirrhosis with normal labs. I checked on the internet and says baggy eyes might be due to water retention due to liver problems,...
Has anyone experienced these syntoms?

  • It kinda sounds like gastritus (sp?) I've had that recently and your symptoms sound the same. It is going round at the moment. My mum, baby and boyfriend have had it too.

  • Hello, thank you very much for your reply.I went to a private gastroenterologist, who did a full abdomen US and said that all my organs look fine and the liver is normal,he did lots of blood tests and all of them normal, so he came to the conclusion that it could have been as you say a virus that comes with the flu or an adverse reaction to the paracetamol or antibotics and he doesn't see any signs of liver disease, which it's a relief, anyway I haven't drank alcohol sonce as this taught me a lesson. He prescribed me with some tablets to help with digestion and told me not to worry as it would make the GI problems worse.take carenela
