...the liver and kidney are located on the right side. I have now. I often have pain where my liver is. The liver has no pain sensors, but when it swells it makes the surrounding tissue hurt. Lately I have had pain down where the right kidney is also. Kinda scary I think. I will drink beer at my funeral I guess.

I hate hospitals and doctors don't excite me. . . . so . . . . I guess I'll drink too.

You sure it's not the gall bladder? I had that worry once, turned out my gall bladder would get inflamed after a lot of fatty food. It feels kinda tender just under the ribcage when it happens. I worried that it was my kidney too.

They can vary from not even noticeable to "please just shoot me now and end the pain". A bad kidney stone is something I wouldn't wish on anybody...one of mine was the worst pain I've ever felt ainec.

I'd like to make a shocking reccomendation....... instead of posting on a forum about it looking for random advice from a bucnh of beer brewers.. GO TO THE DOCTOR!

On that note... kidney stones can also cause dull, throbbing, constant pain as well as sharp, flip you over in bed, pain. If you're not properly hydrating yourself they develop rather easily. I'd say unless you're 60+ years old and you are really heavily drinking that the liver is probably not the cause.
