Hello everyone!
I will try my best to explain my problem. I want to know if my symptoms could be cause by cirhossis or hepatitis. I am basically trying to find out if anyone with the liver disease/cirhossis can have simillar problems that i have.
So lets get to it.
When I eat normally, I get this constant state of confusion. Its like my memory only lasts few seconds and then it "reset" ( I basically forget what I was thinking about), I cant do basic math, I have this weird eye problem when I got something like "slowed down seeing"(basically it takes a second or so for me to realise what I am looking at). My thinking is slowed and I cant imagine anything, I have trouble remembering names or words, I have constant tinitus that never stops and songs or sentences that repeat over and over again in my head, NON STOP all day.
I was wondering if this could be caused by cirhossis or liver disease of some sort, because I know I had hepatitis some years ago which i didnt treat or have any special diet for + i drank alcohol during my elness. i also overdosed on my grandmothers medication , (i took like 30 various pills I dont remember which pills it was ) I was seeeing white and falling down whenever I stood, so I went to bed and slept it over. After that when I woke up I was very tired and when i ate I slowly become normal.

This is why I think it might be cirhossis, could the pills damage my liver? Or the alcohol I drank during my hepattitis ilness?

I suffer from this problem with thinking and I dont really know what causes it.

Any information from you could help and I would be very glad for it.

Thank you very much

hi kopecek and welcome
not likely cirrhosis. confusion is a symptom of very late stage cirrhosis. at that stage you would be under the care of a hepatologist, with many more serious symptoms.

however, if you have been diagnosed with hepatitis, in the past. you should have that checked. viral and fatty liver from food and alcohol progress very slowly. I found my liver disease 30 years after my onset of infection.
baby boomers today are finding that some have been exposed to hep c, from blood transfusions and military injections. all boomers who served yhe country, and those who have had transfusions before 1993 should have a test.

good luck to you
