Does liver pain only occur on the upper right quadriant?
Can Liver pain penetrate throught the back as well?
Does pain from upper right to center and partial left fall in the symptoms of liver problems?
I had gallbladder disease and had to have it removed in 2001. I was nauseous and had what felt like indigestion and pain that circulated through my chest and into my left shoulder.
I know someone that has what is called fatty liver and he has a terrible pain in his upper right side that circulates around his back and is in his left side at times but never as bad as the pain in his right side. He was just diagnosed today. It is caused by drinking beer. He never gets drunk but has a few in the evening. Please get an ultrasound and liver function tests if you are having these symptoms. It can turn worse.
In my previous post I meant to say the pain on his right side is worse than the pain on his left. And YES always get an ultrasound. There are many organs in there close together and it could be any one of them.
