Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Since how long are you having these symptoms?
Do you have any other medical problems?
Are you on any medications for anything?
Please let me know.
Please answer the questions above.
1.) Probably around 10 months on the liver function abnormality, and they have (for the most part) come down after each blood test.
No other medical problems, this was the only thing came up on the first general blood test
How severe are the pains that you are having?
No really pain, just discomfort. It is more uncomfortable when standing
Have you used any anti-inflammatories for this?
No, I haven't tried anything like that
You should try taking something like over-the-counter ibuprofen 400 mg three times daily after meals for two weeks.
This should help with your discomfort.
Seems most likely to be postviral syndrome.
Which should settle in due course of time.
Thanks. Is ibuprofen ok to take with a liver abnormality. I have been scanned on all the major organs and they are fine.
Also, would the weakness in the muscles explain the discomfort when standing and the need sometimes in my mind to sit down etc?
I also think that you should take calcium and vitamin D supplements which are over-the-counter which will help.
Yes weakness in muscles may also explain a part of the discomfort that you are having.
Here is what you should do:ibuprofencalciumvitamin D magnesium
Ok thanks. Would breathlessness on occasion also be linked to post viral?
If your breathlessness continues, however, I would refer you to a chest medicine specialist.
No, I appreciate your responses.

Hi. I also meant to say that when standing I would feel a little light headed. Again, would this be normal regarding what I just described?
