Hi I'm new here.
I went to my GP this morning because over the last few weeks I have been having Rt upper quadrant pain radiating to the right side flank. It's worse when I bend forward, when palpated & when lying on my side at night. I was worried because I have given my liver quite a battering over the years with 5-6 paracetamol overdoses (I have Bipolar disorder) as well as drinking heavily, worse over last 8 years. I quite often will have 6 bottles of wine on a weekend but nothing during the week. I very rarely get drunk.
My GP said she thought it was muscular-skeletal pain (we have been doing some heavy work on the farm) but she ordered Liver Function Tests including GGT, Renal function tests & Full Blood Count. Results show GGT 60 & CRP 14. Everything else normal. I am also booked for an Ultrasound.
My GP won't see me again until after I have had my ultrasound, which could be months away. Obviously I plan to stop drinking immediately but should I be worried?
