I'm a 21-year-old female who drinks heavily i've just been feeling under the weather lately. Most of my symptoms match cirrhosis. Is it possible?

Unlikely: You're too young to have cirrhosis of the liver yet but you could have alcoholic hepatitis and you're on your way to cirrhosis. From your question you've taken an important first step-recognizing you have a drinking problem. Now its time to ask for help from loved ones, clergy or alcoholics anonymous. Good luck to you.
