Hello Guys i have been experiencing upper right abdominal pain especially when i eat solid food like yam and when sitting down. Could this be liver damage. My last Ultra sound scan shows nothing. The pain appears like food stuck in my intestine and when i drink of warm water and defecate it relieves. Please guys educate me on this

I have similar symptoms which relieve in a similar way after a potential exposure yet my tests are negative for all markers. Makes no sense

So whats really the cause of these pain
For my symptoms, I don’t know yet. I’ve attended experts in STI’s, Hepatologists, Infectious Diseases experts and they say I am fine but my symptoms are real. Something is wrong with me. My symptoms are similar to yours. Am wondering if I could have HBV and my markers are somehow delayed appearing
I was confirmed with H pylori in Feb but don’t think it explains everything I’ve experienced.
Guys plz educated I just receive another result of my HBV DNA which is now 138 IU/ml as opposed to the 61.5IU/ml last year. Am not presently on any antiviral but I did used lamivudine tenofovir disoprivil fumarate in 2016 for 7months but stopped it as directed by my Doctor.
