Hi Seamonkey - I was recently diaignosed with fatty after I turned 40 and only 3 weeks ago had major surgery to address OSA which I have heard may be a culprit in fatty liver. But I also drink a bottle of wine a night on average, and have drunk an equivelant amount for 20 years or so even though I eat well and hit the gym 2-3 times a week. I am in the process of addressing this behavior, but have recently noticed similar symptons you noted - an almost imperceptible "pain" or discomfort in the lower right rib area to the lower back. I'd be curious to know if you have found out anything further re: your possible condition.
