What Are the Symptoms of Cirrhosis?

Recommended Posts

Cirrhosis takes a long time to develop. You could have it for years without any symptoms.

When you do get symptoms, they’ll depend on how far along the cirrhosis is.

First Symptoms

The early signs can be the same as those of other diseases, so it’s important to talk to your doctor when you have them. They can include:

Swelling in your ankles or legs
Blood vessels that look like spiders on your chest, face, or arms
Feeling very tired
Poor appetite
Feeling sick to your stomach
Weakness
Weight loss (without trying)
Loss of muscle

Later Symptoms

If you don’t get treatment for the cause of your cirrhosis, it’ll get worse. The symptoms will get worse, too.

They might include:

Trouble thinking, forgetfulness, confusion
Trouble sleeping
Forgetfulness
Swelling in your belly
White nails
Wider or thicker fingertips (clubbed fingers)
Hair loss
Nosebleeds
Bleeding gums
Muscle cramps
Lack of sex drive or ability
Bruising easily
Yellow skin or eyes (jaundice)
Itchy skin
Dark pee that is brownish or orange in color
Light-colored stools
Blood in your stools
Personality changes
Fever

Go to the emergency room if:

Your stools are black or like tar.
You are vomiting blood.
You have severe abdominal pain.
You feel very confused and sleepy.
You have a high fever and can’t stop shaking.
The whites of your eyes suddenly turn yellow.
