Stomach ache, nausea, vomiting and swelling in the abdomen. Liver function test showing high ALT levels. Why?

I had liver function tested as part of my yearly physical, my ALT ( SGPT )was 24. For no reason in one day I had extreme stomach ache, nausea , vomiting and swelling of my abdomen. Three weeks later I had blood tested again and my ALT was 36 out of range 0-32. All the other liver function tests are normal except ALT. Could something happened to my liver during this episode?
