R rib and liver pain

I have been experiencing R rib pain for the last 7 months. Internittent but never really going away. It first was a discomfort- felt like a "Stitch" in your side almost but now is radiating down and around much like a kidney pain into the mid-back -only on the r side. I first thought I had a broken rib ( no accidents however) then I thought perhaps I noticed it more when drinking black and green teas. So I've not been drinking any for several months. I rarely drink alcohol. I have now had an abd ultrasound, gallbladder HITA scan , slightly elevated liver enzymes, all tests were negative including those for hepatitis. I even ended up with a mamogram and biopsy that was negative. My chest xray was ok- sl enlarged heart. Just last week a CT scan did show a small dime sized area of the liver that was highly contrasted. The clinic did not feel this was of much consequence. Does anyone know if this is how a fatty liver may be diagnosed? I've seen some posts from almost 10 yrs ago describing the same type thing and would appreceiate knowing how and what youv'e done to alleviate the symptoms. I have no health insurance and am getting tired of the run-around. I am considering the Chinese Herbal supplements. I have done all the natural cleanses -etc. Thanks for any input!
