Can elevated liver enzymes cause referred pain in the midsternum area of the chest? I have elevated liver enzymes which was caused by IV antibiotics for 6 weeks due to staph infection in my knee. I have recently stopped the antibiotics due to the elevated liver enzymes but I continue with this intermiitent pain in the middle part of my chest. Could this be referred pain from my liver?
Thanks for writing to Health Care Magic, I am Dr Asad Riaz, I have closely read your question and I understand your concerns, I will hereby guide you regarding your health related problem. ..if u were my patient i would have ur chest xray to look for infection in the chest...sometiem infection is not fully removed from body due not complete use of drug as in ur case...liver enzyme itself donot cause chest pain but infection that can cause both chest pain n elevated liver enzyme n vice versa..I hope this answered your question, if you have more feel free to ask.
