Thanks for writing to us.
The raised liver enzymes are not worrisome if the values are less than three times the basal levels. Such mild rise can be corrected with dietary modifications and weight loss. You need to have rest of the investigations to rule out other organic causes.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The enzymes (transaminases) have to be 3 or more times the upper limit - to be considered 'significant' - to demand further attention and extensive analysis...
Introducing more drugs - especially pain relievers - (without a definite diagnosis) may up the enzymes further....most of them are metabolised in the liver...they could also harm the stomach..

Bear with the pain / bear with your doctors / patience and perseverance will help you in the long need proper diagnosis for appropriate treatment...

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
