Hello ladies! Has any of you have experienced pain right where your liver is situated. Do hormones affect liver function?

Thank you in advance💜

    Yes...for years now. When I told my Dr. I was sent for a gall bladder scan. That came back negative, and the dull pain is still there. I've been taking a liver support since the pain started. I've read that the liver is affected by the hormonal changes that occur in menopause.

    Hi Maria 

    I think I posted this question in July , I was on holiday for two weeks and had this constant niggle the whole time , I wondered if it was my liver or gallbladder, it was painful at times and couldn’t get comfortable. Thankfully it’s away now but did have it weeks , just another tick on the menopause list of many , I have the dizzy /detached feeling  at the moment . Take care , glad we all have each other 💕

      Hi Claire - Yep! Been there, done that - CT scan for gallbladder/liver - it does ease up & every so often I get it again.  You can get it checked out if it makes you feel better, but I am fairly certain it’s just another symptom of our depleting hormones. Take care -

    Hi Maria.  Yep this is one of my very annoying symptoms.  It does come and go every 3-4 months.  Ultrasound showed sludge and some gravel stones in my gallbladder...it quit hurting and I decided not to have it taken out.  That was prob 3 years ago.  The last US I had whenever it was acting up didn’t show anything.  My friend who is a radiologist said sometimes none of the tests will show anything...especially sludge.  I did a lot of research on this.  I have such bad health anxiety.  And from what I read, yes our hormones do play a role in the gallbladder situation with the bile becoming thicker and developing stones.  Also, if you have dieted recently with a low fat diet...that can cause it too.   I hope you feel better soon

    Have you had a check up? Could be gallbladder flare up...it was with me. Gallbladder is attached to liver somewhere in there because it holds bile. Similar pains made me go get checked.
