Bloody docs

Postby richy24 » Tue Jul 16, 2013 12:38 pm

Hi all. Hope everyone is doing ok.
I was at docs again this morning and i must say they are useless!
He claimed to not feel my swollen neck glands and i had to get him to feel the right bit!
I got him to check underarms n groin as i have pains there n everywhere! He said nothing wrong.
Went through bloods and urine sample results and nothin indicated. I am annoyed tho cos i read that sometines with chronic fatigue the liver result can be higher and i had tht for a while. I hate this they keep sayin its anxiety as there is nothing detectable or indicative of anything at all!?!?
I feel so tired and achy n uncomfortable.

Elevated levels of liver enzymes, such as alanine transaminase and aspartate transaminase, can indicate inflammation or damage to your liver cells. Elevated aspartate transaminase levels can also be associated with fatigue.

Stress and fatigue can cause an increase in the liver enzyme aspartate transaminase. As stress levels increase, symptoms of fatigue can begin to develop. Measurements taken after fatigue has developed can show a significant elevation in aspartate transaminase levels, which could indicate that high aspartate transaminase levels are a sign of fatigue. However, more research is needed to determine what other factors affect the way fatigue and liver enzymes interact, as well as their overall implication on liver health.

Lifestyle factors such as caffeine consumption, excessive physical activity and sleep deprivation often cause fatigue. Psychological factors like anxiety, depression and grief sometimes induce fatigue. However, fatigue is also caused by medical conditions like acute liver failure, chronic fatigue syndrome and heart disease. As such, making health-conscious lifestyle choices and keeping a positive disposition are possible ways to help lower the risk of developing fatigue. This includes eating healthy food, exercising regularly and getting sufficient rest.

richy24.....i am sorry you are so frustrated and angry right now. Having these feelings will not help your symptoms.

I am cofused, did you mean your liver levels were up on a blood test or that CF is what you had?

Richy, sometimes there is nothing at the moment a Dr can do differently for you. If your blood and urine came back ok, well that is good news. Having an illness like this can really play on us. We just want fixed, answers, any answer, as long as it can be fixed. Your Dr may be right in suggesting anxiety. I am not dismissing your illness, it is just that we can get so worked up so easily when we want answers. I have had glands swollen and nothing show up on tests. I think they might have been that way because I was fighting stress not the usual physical symptom that would cause swollen glands.

As FluppyPuffy said, the best thing you can do is to try to look after yourself the best you can.

Expect the worst in life you won't be disapointed and you'll be prepared!
