Unfortunately, some physical problems can also be caused by anxiety and the stress response and hormonal changes it causes. This complicates things.
But while I agree with you that early cirrhosis can be unclear, the symptoms of our Worried Woman still are not consistent with this, while yours were. Thanks goodness you were eventually diagnosed.
I have seen people with nutritional deficiencies and gluten allergies that
have symptoms like the OP describes. Sometimes it takes time for the problem

thank goodness for her.
