Hello to all who post here. First off thank you for posting as I have learned much from your comments. I live in the United States however my Mom immigrated to the US so I hope I still qualify to sit in on this group.
Here is my situation. I have been a long time drinker 20+ years. In the past 10 years it has been 30 - 40 beers a week average. Two months ago I noticed a dull pain in my upper left side that has not shifted to the upper right side. The pain is not bad and comes and goes. I have had three sets of blood labs with liver function tests that were all normal, one before I noticed the pain and two after. I have not other symptoms or signs.
I have seen posts in the past about members saying that it took six months to a year to get back to normal (pain free?). Does anyone have any experience on pain only that resolves by itself? I have hesitated to contact a doctor here due to insurance concerns. I know that will be good advice and I will have to go soon if this does not start getting better.
Thank you in advance for any information that you are willing to share.
