P.S. I have not had organ failure but am on the largest possible dose of lasix along with a additional diuretic because my liver just won't work without them, I have attacks just like you described that involve, headache, confusion, exhaustion and sleep 24-48 hours, fever, chills to the bone until my teeth click, nausea vomitting the hepatologist says it is a build up of toxins in the bloodstream and I shut down to rest and recover. I feel much better after I sleep them off but am very debilitated during them so weak I can't even go to the bathroom and I usually don't need to since I sleep through my diuretic dosing. This has nothing to do with anxiety or going crazy its how i respond to teh toxic wate in the bloodstream. I and very confused and also have severe memory loss anymore i mean I foret something 5 minutes later. The list of hep and chirosis symptoms are

◦Loss of appetite


◦Pain over the liver (on the right side of the abdomen, just under the rib cage)
◦Jaundice - A condition in which the skin and the whites of the eyes turn yellow
◦Dark-colored urine (may look like cola or tea)
◦Stoolsbecome pale in color (grayish or clay colored)

•Prolonged nausea and vomiting can cause dehydration. If you have been vomiting repeatedly, you may notice the following symptoms:

◦Fatigue or weakness
◦Confusion or difficulty concentrating
◦Not urinating

•Chronic hepatitis C can lead tocirrhosis of the liver in many people, a condition traditionally associated with alcoholism. Cirrhosis is a condition in which healthy liver tissue is replaced by fibrous tissue,followed byscarlike hardening. As this happens, the liver gradually begins to fail, or lose its ability to carry out its normal functions. Eventually, symptoms develop. Symptoms of cirrhosisinclude the following:

◦Fluid retention causing swelling of the belly (ascites), legs, or whole body
◦Persistent jaundice
◦Disturbances in sleeping
◦Itchy skin
◦Loss of appetite, weight loss, wasting
◦Vomiting with blood in the vomit
◦Mental disturbances such as confusion, lethargy, extreme sleepiness, or hallucinations (hepatic encephalopathy)
