I am a non smoker and have never drank alcohol, however, from around 1999 I have had this awful pain, in the upper right side of my torso radiating toward the back. The pain itself ranges from constant dull ache to sometimes throbbing and the area feels inflamed - hot to the touch. In 2006 I was diagnosed with non-steatohepatitis but have had next to no information about it. What I know for sure is that it is very tiring when it 'plays-up' and very painful to boot, I feel completely listless and lethargic. The pain can very suddenly get worse and takes my breath away. I have palpitations, with dizzy spells and get really cold! Why is this so? Are there other people out there in similar situation??!
