So, a couple of week so go I founds myself in absolute agony in my 'right upper qruadrant' area, under my rib cages, I phoned 111 as the pain was progressing and sending a shooting pain into my right shoulder, they then suggested that I take myself to A & E. I couldn't lie on my front, back, side or anything as it was causing excruciating pain in my right side. While being in hospital for a total of 5 days I had numerous tests completed. Blood tests which showed a raise in my liver enzymes (I have non-alcoholic fatty liver disease so this was no surprise to me really). Ultrasound showed some free standing fluid around my liver and kidneys, and the Ct scan showed some tissue around my ovaries, the gyno came to see me and he couldn't link it up so just put it down as a coincidence. 2 weeks later, and 3 visits to the doctors they have said that they think it's an inflammation of the liver capsule and it will go down on its own. I am taking codeine, tramadol, buscopan & gastro resistant capsules. The pain killers do not take the pain away whatsoever but I have found the pain almost transferring itself? Sometimes it is under my right rib cage, other times it is in my lower back and a lot in my right hip. Still also getting the pain in my shoulder It also depends on my sleeping position as to how much pain I wake up with in the morning. I was just wondering if anyone has had any experiences with this and if it has been resolved?
