In brief: Needs an exam

Should see a gastroenterologist immediately.
Causes can be worked up by a detailed workup without any further delay and liver compromise. Might need a liver biopsy if warranted by your physician.

In brief: Rule out lupus, FMF

There are a few causes of serositis that might do this including lupus and familial mediterranean fever.
I trust you have had really good imaging studies done and do not have meig's or a portal vein thrombosis. This is a difficult workup; good luck.
