    The liver has no nerve endings, it does not give painful feelings. Is it upper right quadrant?

      did you get only an ultra sound? my Dr did tea sound was very unbothered like "oh you have a lil bit of fatty liver nothing too concerning" I was sent to a gi specialist who saw that and insisted on more liver blood work and a fibro scan. I've read that blood work and ultrasound are not always reliable tests for liver. perhsps request a fibroscan? still waiting on my results its been a couple weeks so hopefully no news is good news. I'm concerned over the pain (often under ribs). what is your pain like?? mine is sometimes burning others gnawing.

    Hi mate I think your doing the correct things, keep drinking loads of water, eat the right foods, and avoid sugars and fatty foods as sugar for me triggers a flare up! And running for me gives me so much relief! After a good run pretty much all the pain goes but does come back over the next day or so!! Not sure why but it defo works for me, your lucky in some ways as you have a diagnosis I've had liver area pain for nearly 20 years blood always perfect except for high cholesterol and ultra sound good too, your learn pretty quickly that unless your yellow with a pot belly and a red nose the medical profession don't give you the time of day! I have so many of what seam like the obvious signs of liver problems that I find it so frustrating! I find myself not going to doctors anymore unless I'm feeling really unwell!! Anxiety apparently but I know it's my liver!!!!! Just looking to pay for a private Fibroscan apparently as good as a biopsy! Good luck and keep me updated Simon aged 43
