What does weakness in the arms indicate?

I have bruises daily on my hands and arms and I m really tired all the time. I know my liver has been compromised due to years of drinking and daily Tylenol taking. Are these symptoms of advanced liver disease? Is there anything I can do to fix this? Does it hurt the liver to take vitamin pills?

It would depend on the type of vitamins that you are using, some may need to be broken down by the liver, and you should check your supplements with your doctor.

In addition, it would be best to have blood tests to determine if there is any problem with the liver.

A complete blood count and ESR (checks for inflammation in the body), may also be needed as well.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
