HI Catherine,

I did have an ache for a short time when I had liver inflammation, when this was resolved I had no aches or pains. As far as I am aware the liver has no nerves, pain is felt when it is enlarged as it affects adjacent tissues.

I hope it gets better soon.


Thank you Paul maybe mine will cease one day ..

Yes I do but no diagnosis error there part

Thanks hugs to you.

Hi Catherine.. i have recently had a lot of pain in the liver area which has resulted in a hospital admission for two weeks. I had numerous investigations and not reaaly any results..

My gp feels its my gallbladder and my liver being stretched. In the hospital the team have come to the conclusion that my liver capsule is stretched/swollen due to my cirrhosis and have put me on a pain medication for nerve damage. I still hv pain in my side most days and my quality of life is affected by it.



Thank you lighthouse 123 I had my gallbladder removed last October they thought that's what it was . I am learning to live with it take pain med if it gets to bad . Hugs to you have a great day!

Hi there, i used to have had liver pain when i was on the demon drink. This was due to inflammation.

I do however have the same pain in the upper right quadrant area. I have done now on and off for 4 weeks and waves of nausea.

I am now suffering bloody awful heartburn. 🙄. No idea why, but it seems to be after a meal.

As they say the liver has no nerves but the capsule does. It could be from another source ? May be you should see your dr. Im hoping for some answers next week when i see my hepatologist. Hope you feel better soon
