Hi all, I am as yet undiagnosed. I've been having pain under my right ribs from front to back for about six weeks. It changes from a nervous feeling to a stabbing pain to a dull ache to throbbing day to day. No other significant symptoms apart from soft stools and minor fatigue. I had my gallbladder out 3 years ago so now worrying about liver damage. First doc diagnosed gastritis, said I couldn't have acute hepatitis because I wasn't jaundiced, but sent me for a blood tests. Second doc said they found high ALT (did not think to ask numbers) but told me to lose weight and come back for more bloods in a month. Been to GUM clinic and waiting for results. Keeping hoping it will be better when I wake up but it's not going away. Have lost 1 1/2 stone through dieting (and minor loss of appetite) and quit smoking 4 days ago. I have found some comfort in reading your posts so just wanted to say thanks. J.
