Just go to the local clinic, health center, hospital lab, whatever. They'll draw blood and run a series of tests called a 'liver panel'. It tests enzyme levels...high levels indicate liver damage, which means it's time to quit the booze and/or change meds. Or they can be high because you've got hepatitus, mono, cirrhosis, or you've been hitting the ibuprofen too hard.

Or there may be no good reason, and your liver just wants to scare the hell out of you.
