I use to drink alot of alcohol when I suffered a long period of depression, approximately a bottle of wine most days for a year. In January I started get a pain on the upper right side of my abdomen when I had alcohol. I went to see the doctor and he performed a physical exam and said my liver felt normal (not enlarged) he also sent me for a blood test which tested for multiple things including liver function, it all came back normal. The pain then ached all the time so the doctors examined my abdomen and still alll felt normal, so now I have asked for an ultrasound and im waiting for an appointment. I have since stop drink but I am terrified I have ver serious liver damage, but no one will listen because im 25. I have alot of symtoms like tiredness pain on the right side, trouble sleeping , itchy skin and piles. This stress is driving me insane I dont know what to do now?
