Pain around liver while drinking alcohol. It comes and goes. Could this be a sign of liver damage?
Hello, I am 33 years old male. I started drinking alcohol when I was 22 years old. Recently I have been getting this occasional pain from the liver area under my right ribs. It comes and goes. Could this be a sign of liver damage? When I get this pain I am usually drinking. If I press the area under my right rib cage about halfway across I can feel pain. Is that pain in the Liver? Can anyone help me with this? What should I do? Help!!!!!!!!!
@soham-kapoor Hello, You should see a doctor and get tested. You are definitely drinking above the recommended weekly level. How many units do you drink? Drinking excess alcohol can cause liver pain, and damage and lead to liver disease or cirrhosis. Alcohol-related liver disease (ALD) is the result of drinking more alcohol than the liver can process, which damages the organ. If too much alcohol is ingested repeatedly over time, even without getting drunk, liver damage begins. When too much liver damage occurs, it impacts the whole body. Consult your doctor if your liver hurts after drinking alcohol. If left untreated, liver damage can lead to serious complications and, finally, death. Please take professional help. Thank You.
