I started having right upper abdominal pain about 18 months ago. I have a history of binge drinking of about 10 years. Never drugs not even a Tylenol. In December of 2014 I had blood work done, ultrasound, HIDA scan and a stomach scope with everything coming back normal. So, like any logical person I continued to drink. Fast forward to November 2015 and the pain intensified. I knew deep down inside that it was from drinking. Most people wouldn't believe the amount of alcohol I was capable of putting down in a sitting. The ultrasound on 09 Nov 2015 showed a Fatty liver. I have been sober since that day. My blood work is and has always been normal. The pain seems to have gotten better. Though still not completely gone away. I have joined this site, because there are times when I am completely panic stricken and it is a place where I can find some comfort. I am humbled, inspired and emotional at everyone's journey and stories. I find comfort and strength in all the sharing. Thank you to those who have and do share their stories, knowledge, advice and compassion. It has provided me comfort in some of my sleepless nights.
