Have diverticular disease. Pressure in liver region. Do I need blood tests?

Male age 42. Mild diveticular disease. Drink aprox 30 units alcohol per week. Last bloods done 10 months ago, all normal. I ve been experiencing painless pressure in the liver region. Happens every 10min or so for about 30sec. I don t notice it at night so not sure if it s coz I m laying down. Guessing I need to get some blood tests? BTW the pressure did go away for about 5 days and then returned.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

The description of pain is like colic. In that region, it could be gall stone.
Liver Function Tests (LFT) and Ultrasound scan of upper abdomen are necessary - for further assessment and assistance

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
