Hello group I am a 32 year old male. For about 2 years I have been consuming 6 to 8 drinks daily. Prior to that pretty minimal alcohol consumption outside of a few weekends here and there. About 1 month ago I began to have a dull ache in my right side under the ribs and on my side. It radiates slightly to my back. I have no other symptoms. The pain hasn't gotten better or worse. I have since reduced my alcohol consumption to 1 or 1.5 drinks per day. I did LFT test and everything was right down the middle including ALT, AST, Bilrubin, Alb, plat count. I have never used recreational drugs, havent taken any pain medication ever and am Hep C negative.
Would you focus on reducing alcohol consumption further or pushing for more tests quickly? 2 years seems quick to have developed severe liver damage but I sure have read some interesting stories and I admit to being a little health anxious. Thoughts on what could be causing my pain if it's not serious liver damage?
