Welcome to icliniq.com.
What is the status of your liver now? You are on treatment or not? Symptoms look like biliary pain. Kindly do an ultrasound, LFT, CBC, GGT. For hepatitis B we also need HBV DNA (quantitative), fibroscan, HBeAg, anti HBe.
Thank you doctor,
I will do that as soon as I can. Would get a doctor and get the tests done as soon as possible.

In the case of hepatitis B assessment of hepatic fibrosis is required to decide about the treatment. We can do it in two ways, non-invasive (fibroscan) and invasive (liver biopsy). Preferably we should go with the non-invasive method.
In the case of advanced fibrosis or high DNA load with elevated ALT (alanine aminotransferase), we should start on treatment for hepatitis B. For ulcers (stomach), take Proton Pump Inhibitors, Sometimes we may need to give you Anti H pylori treatment.
