Patient: This past Saturday I had a night of drinking at the club & ended up puking a little later on. The next day of course I had a bad hangover but very different than the usual. My whole body was sore even my face but more so in the abdominal area. I was extremely nauseous the entire day & had little appetite. But my worry is that it’s now Monday and I still have an aching pain on my right side under the rib and a sort of pressure its especially painful when im standing & try to stretch myself backwards or if i press on it. Im aware that its my liver but I want to know what’s going on in There. I’m a 19year old female.
