I was a very heavy drinker 15 years ago I

Patient : I was a very heavy drinker 15 years ago. I have not touched one drink since then. My doctor just told me my liver enzymes were elevated. We have tested them 3 times over 6 months. They are still elevated. Is this from my previous alcohol abuse? He thinks i could have arthritis because of a spine issue. I have had test for Hep C previously and it was always negative.
Symptoms:  No symptoms. I just had pain in my spine so dr took blood test to give the back doctor. He found the elevated enzymes then.
