Hi there. I'm 24 years old. Around 9stone and I've been having an uncomfortable feeling like a pain in my upper right abdomen (radiating to back ) for about a year now. I have been freaking out alot as I drank heavily between the ages of 18-22 while living abroad partying. Drinking huge amounts every single day over months at a time. I have convinced myself I have done damage. But my doctors dont think it is my liver at all. Last year I had all my liver function tests complete blood count, abdominal ultrasound and endoscopy done which were all clear. I've constantly been worrying about this and its causing me severe anxiety where I feel crippled some days and cant live life properly or enjoy my day just thinking about it. Because the pain has continued I've been going to the doctor and around 3 weeks ago had all my bloods done again( liver function, CBC etc) and I went and had another abdominal ultrasound done privately this time which were all also normal so basically they are putting it down to my acid reflux problems which was diagnosed with endoscopy.. I also have oesophagitis which I'm going to get surgery for to stop the reflux. . I dont drink much now maybe once every 6 weeks or so on a night out but I would drink a large amount ln that night out usually. I didnt drink for two months and last weekend drank one night hut a large amount and this back pain and (slight) uncomfortable upper rigjt abdomen pain has come back after not having it for a few weeks.
I also have slipping rib syndrome on the same right side I wonder if that would cause back pain but why would it get worse after drinking alcohol.
Should I be satisfied with the tests I've done and could it be reflux and gerd problems?
I am obsessing over it and because the pain is there i cant let it go.
Any advice much appreciated
