I am a 37 yr old male. I have had upper right quadrant pain that comes and goes for appx 10 years. The pain in not sharp but more of a dull pain, a tenderness or fullness. I also seem to have many soft or loose stools that come and go also. No fever, nasuea, or weight loss is involved. I do not drink much (mabey once or twice a month). But the pain always presents itself the day after I have had a few drinks and stays there for 2 or 3 weeks and then fades away. I have been to my doctor and had normal liver function results and a clean upper GI so he says everything is ok. My concern is if there may be an enlarged or fatty liver, gallbladder problem or pehaps a problem with the intestinal track. The pain is basically always in the same place, the upper right quadrant. Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

I have the same problem as you--I can't decide if the slight discomfort in my right quadrant is my imagination or not. My liver enzymes have always been normal, and I'm generally not sick. I'm sorry that I can't answer any of your questions, but I'm glad to know someone else feels that exact discomfort (especially after they drink).
