hi, I've been trying to find out about a strange horizontal line on the liver side of my abdomen (half way up) which appeared about 18 months ago after a wine tasting holiday in italy. Prior to this had some back and shoulder pain. Put myself on a diet and no alcohol for a few weeks and this line disappeared likewise the pain. However, when I started drinking again this line came back-also had a feeling of "tightness" in the liver area. After a while the pain became more chronic and eventually had some blood tests which showed elevated ggt(188). After about 6 months abstinence(not total) this line is fading and pain diminishing so there's a definite correlation it seems. had an ultrasound recently and all clear so I'm not concerned just curious as I can't find anything on the web of similar symptoms-I thought it might be an enlarged liver but evidently not. I'm going to get my bloods done in a few weeks so will know for sure if there's an improvement. I haven't been diagnosed with anything btw.
