Colleenz, welcome to the forum! Most everyone with liver disease has the fatigue factor and wants to sleep all the time. The fatigue was what first got my attention back around '91, but my PCP at that time just brushed it off as hormones or smoking (I don't smoke now.) At first, I didn't have the sleepiness, but have for some years now. Mine is caused by hep C and cirrhosis. I have to set my clock and force myself to get up and do things. I also have my days and nights reversed. My itching is mostly around my ankles and the middle of my back. I use Gold Bond cream wherever I can reach. When I wear contacts, I have to use a lot of wetting drops. Sometimes I also use eye wash.
