Blood test done, liver enzymes elevated, cholesterol high. Pain under ribs. Related to elevated enzymes?

I went for my reg. checkup and had bloodwork. My liver enzymes are elevated, chlor. high. dr. wants to do an ultrasound tomorrow on my liver as well as to talk about the high chlor. Yesterday i bent over to pick something up and immed. my upper left side started hurting. It s like I pulled something. I can touch that area and it hurts to the touch( If i twist, or turn the wrong way ,or sleep on my left side). Could this all be related to the elevated enzymes? By the way, the hurt on the left side is under my ribs,on the upper back close to my bra band. Thanks,Cathy

Welcome to HCM,
As your liver enzymes are raised, it require evaluation.
Ultra sound of liver will give some clue regarding liver condition.
You have not mentioned your age and weight.
You may require Lipid profile as well and if you are above 40 yrs you are advised to for ECG as well.
If you are over weight then go for blood sugar as well.
The pain you got on left side might be due to strain on muscles while lifting some thing.
Within a day or two you will be alright of pain.
You can apply some analgesic, muscle relaxant cream.
Do regular exercise to control your cholesterol.
Ok and bye.
