From about 2 years i experience sometimes more often sometimes less often pain around my liver. It is pretty weak pain but i can sense it. Doctors told me I can and should exercise. I stay away from fats I dont drink alcohol since 2 years. But I still feel like puking at 4.00 in the morning, ESPECIALLY if I sleep on my right, liver side. I have this discomfort since around 2 years, I'm afraid it might get worse. But doctors told me I shouldn't feel pain because liver has no nerve connections.
In 2010 when i first experienced it they told me to stop drinking alcohol (rarely but shameful no limits), the liver was enlarged and liver test aspat alat were higher than norm. But i cut the diet and suddenly felt alot better. But then later on it just came back. I feel liver discomfort almost every day. A year before I could drink 2 cups of coffee daily and felt nothing. Now i feel almost always some discomfort around my liver with quite often higher acids in my stomach. I exercise moderately and can't sleep on my right side. A year before I felt almost puking in the moring at 4.00 before morning. But now it stopped, acids stopped, but I still can't sleep on right side. Doctors tell me that the blood test results are okay! 2 years before I could drink tea in litres, now i feel that acid feeling from time to time. I don't feel like drinking standard coffee in starbucks anymore, sometimes i feel almost like warm or burning feeling, acids sometimes a puking feeling or gas. Doctors told me I should exercise regularly but no marathons ok no problem but I feel much worse around my liver after last week of exercises, especially after the 6.5km run on a stationary bike.
Does every hepatitis patient feel that way? Or is it "imagined" of some sort?
oh by the way, everytime they check my liver size they say it is small or very small. But year after year (just 2 years) I feel somewhat worse but I'm just 28. I have chronic hep b since childbirith, fibrosis close to 3 on metavir scale. On the list waiting for interferon.
