Whats going on, am I in serious shape? And could a coffee with cream before blood work affect lev
Liver injury: It's difficult today you have a liver injury. There are many insults that can cause liver enzymes to go high temporarily, like an infection or even some medications.

It means 3 times a day while awake, roughly every 6 hours. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I am on a 10 day course of amoxicillin. I will still be on it on thanksgiving, so my question is...Is it ok to have a few drinks while on amoxicillin?
Yes: high MackM. Your description of 'Belching , Heart palpitations , Sharp chest pain on the left side' is a little worrisome, but the amoxicillin can cause GI symptoms like that..if it seems more like your heart, consider going to the ER.
