I've been having pain on and off for over 1 1/2 years. The pain is in my right lower abdomen, flank, pelvic area and lower back. Sometimes it hurts up under my right ribs. Somtimes there is a lot of pressure too along with the pain.
No diagnosis, but multiple tests have come back negative. My last u/s was over a year ago. All my bloodwork has been normal, but my last bloodwork was in January.
Now for 2 weeks my tongue has had an orangish-brown coating on it. I'm not sure if there is a relation, but I did read online that brown tongue can be a symptom of a liver problem.
Please anyone, could this still be my liver? I have no jaundice.
Sorry, I just remembered something else. Sometimes when I am having the pain, if I stretch the right side of my body by leaning to the left, I can feel it more. Don't know if this would happen with the liver.
hi, i have been wondering if not having a gallbladder makes it harder on the liver/body etc also. My daughter whom is 18 had hers out a year ago. She had that right pain also before they took her gallbladder out and now its been a year and she still is having the right side pain. I'm glad your bloodwork has been ok but so has my daughters up to last week when they did more extensive tests, they did a ANA and SMooth muscle ab antibody test among alot of others but both of these came back positive and they are big markers for auto immune hepatitas. I have read up on this disease and it says its greatly misdiagnosed because if the main liver panel is normal then doctors don't run these other tests, then its too late and the liver already has too much damage, i stongly suggest that you get the extra test done if you are having this pain, My daughter has extreme fatigue also. They are running more blood work and then a liver biopsy is next in line. You only have one liver and you need to demand this bloodwork to rule this condition out.
I had an ANA in January of this year which was negative. Did not have the SMA. Does your daughter have any jaundice, nausea, vomiting or loss of appetite?
I'm sorry to hear about her diagnosis, but thank God she was diagnosed and can now be treated. It sounds like if your treated it's pretty successful. It's when people aren't treated that they can become worse. What I wouldn't give for a definate diagnosis.
