Worried about my liver

Over the past couple of days the right side of my stomach has been swollen and then yesterday at work I noticed my sweat smelled like ammonia. This has me pretty freaked out.

I'm a 34 year old male and am probably around 40lbs overweight. Also I'm an alcoholic and I gave up drinking about 2 weeks ago, but before that I had been drinking between 6-12 drinks 3-5 days a week. I'm not experiencing any pain in my stomach but there is discomfort. It feels almost like there is pressure in my right side.

Does this sound like a liver or kidney problem? Should I head to the clinic today or can this wait until Monday when I can see my normal doctor?

I would appreciate any insight you could give me. Thank you

You should go see a doctor ASAP. Better safe than sorry. When your body shows strong symptoms it means , it is screaming for help. Please follow with a doctor today.
