Hi doctor,

I am an 18 year old male, and I weigh 90 kg and 178 cm tall. I have pain under my right rib, and it hurts while breathing. I hope it is not liver related from alcohol. I had two drinks in the last few days, but those are the only drinks I have ever had.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • It does not seem to be related to alcohol drinking as per your history, as two drinks do not make much of a change with the anatomy of the liver. It is probably suggestive of muscle related problem.
  • It might be myalgia or cellulitis. I suggest you get a liver function test to be sure.
