I (24/male) have had an on and off dull ache/bloated feeling in my right upper abdomen for over a month now. Got pretty scared as I thought it was due to being a heavy drinker for around 4 years. Since then I've cut down on alcohol massively but not completely, I'm at least having 3-4 days off a week and at the start of September did 2 straight weeks no booze.
Anyhow, I expressed my concerns to my doctor in early September, she thought it was gastritis after a quick examination and prescribed omeprazole. The pain/feeling subsided but has never completely disappeared. I went back to the doctor saying I'm concerned this is liver related and she got me a liver function test. I've had the results today and she said I have "mildly high liver enzymes"... Didn't actually get a chance to chat to my doctor and the receptionist just relayed this and said I'm booked for another test in 4 weeks. I'm also getting an ultrasound done in around 6 weeks time.
How serious is this? Kinda freaked out.
