Stress
Can having a very stressful night cause anything to happen to cause liver pain? It is 1 month today til I can see Dr. and have noticed a little liver discomfort the last few days and it seems worse this morning. I have tested Pos. told(wrongly) that I couldn't be treated. I have the no Dr. for 6mos. thing almost licked for new insurance to cover "pre-existing". Thank You

Your pain could be from your tummy from your stress.
Iratable Bowel Snytrom (IBS) can cause pain in that area as well. Stress can really do a number on you. Try to relax (I know, easier said than done) until your next Dr visit.

Thanks guys. I will try to relax. It seems sometimes that this last month was longer than the first 4, but I'm still not yellow and I'm not swelled up and except for tiring easy, I'm doing pretty good.

I told my doc yesterday that I was having discomfort in my liver area and he said that Hepc didn't cause discomfort....hmm!  He did however say that stress could be the culprit. I am a very stressed person anyway so I've decided to just CHILL OUT over this disease because the hairs on my head are numbered (quote from the bible) and will only die when I'm supposed to.
God Bless!

Hi folks,

Couldn't agree more.  Seems like everytime I get in a stressful situation my right side, under the ribs, gets that dull deep ache.  Was happening even before I was diagnosed HCV so I know it can't be in my head.  Don't know why it happens.

Best to all,
Steve
