Right side pain, gas, liver or muscle ?

Hello all,

Well let’s see if anyone has a guess at this.

I went to the ER 8/2/11 because my Right Side below my rib cage feels sore and if I push in it hurts. I can feel it when I walk or breath real deeply or move around.

The Dr pushed on different parts on stomach said to low for gall bladder and to high for appendix most likely, and I have no fever.

What else could it be? Gas? Torn/pulled muscle.

He said probably not liver cause I’m not Jaundice, no ultra sound was done.

I do feel a lot of gas but not sure it’s that cause it feels sore up and down right side, I had my gallbladder checked a few years back also.

It has been 3 days, and prior to this ( 2 days before) I did have a mild fever and upset stomach. I also did drink a lot of alcohol, Thurs-Saturday, and haven’t for 4 days now ( could my liver be inflamed still? )

Thank you for reading! Any more info needed just ask.

I have fatty liver - I went to a liver specialist - the liver never causes pain but it can swell and push other organ which gives you a dull ache. That is what I was told. Did the doctor take any blood test?

Thanks for your reply gigi11,

They actually did not do anything at the ER, but give me a bill for $1045.

I did have a blood test done a couple months ago when I had my thyroid checked and my liver enzymes were high. As of right now the pain is not as bad but I still feel it, I had a ultra sound done a few years back and I know I had fatty liver then and I'm sure it is the same if not worse...

Need to figure out how to take better care of myself, always something wrong and I'm barely going to be 40 this october. Probably jump over to the Liver forums.
