what does liver pain feel like?

I am having pain under the lower part of my right rib cage. it is not constant by any means, but there is a pretty sharp and very brief pain there several times a day.

I drink regularly, smoke marijuana on occasion, but I was just put on a new medicine called lialda about a month ago, which is when the pain started. I am currently trying to switch off of this medication. Do you think this is liver pain? thank you for the help.

Re: what does liver pain feel like?

I had a hepatic adenoma rupture in my liver just over a year ago (I'm lucky to be alive today, as I've been told), and the pain started with an ache in my mid-back. I also had severe pain in my right shoulder, then felt like there was a lot of pressure in my chest, similar to gastric pain. When the Tums and Nexium didn't work, and the pain progressed to my right abdominal area, I went to the ER in tears. Bloodwork, an ultrasound and CT ultimately led to the diagnosis.

If your pain persists, you should contact your prescribing physician. Good luck!
