Does nexuim cause liver damage ?

I am a 30 year old female. I am 5 feet 3inches tall and 145lbs. last week I was feeling tired, weak, had stomach pains. I went to the Doctor who took blood . I got a call a few days later telling me that I had high liver enzymes. All I want to do is sleep, I also hurt in my stomach most of the time. My urine is very dark I don t get hungry. I was on Nexuim but stopped. Is a side effect to Nexuim liver damage? I have an ultrasound scheduled for tomrrow. I am sick of feeling sick. I never drink and hardly ever take tylenol , I am at a loss as to why i would have liver issues. I just want some answers and a treatment so I can start feeling better.

I have been a heavy drinker my entire life. 12-16 units daily when younger, now the same but I take 2 days off per week. I check levels 2-3 times per year and ALT AST have been normal for the last 5 years but now they spiked to 70 and 120 and this was after not drinking any alcohol for 2 weeks. I noticed after ceasing alcohol in anticipation of my test that my liver felt swollen and continues to feel that way. I am sure alcohol is / has contributed to the problem but want to know it there is any other condition that I should be worried about. I already plan to cut way back on alcohol consumption.
