Pain under ribcage extending to the shoulder, shortness of breath. ECHO normal, ultrasound showed fatty liver. Could this be enlarged spleen?

I had felt this under my left rib cage back in Feb of last year and ever since then I have been short of breath feeling and feeling like my diaphram doesn t expand fully and I have terrible pain that radiates up into my left shoulder . I ve been to my pcp and he did a echo to make sure my heart was okay and it was I also been to my GI doc and she did a ultrasound of my pancrease and found out thaat I have a fatty liver , however nothing else has been diagnosed and I am still in pain and winded. Could this be from an enlarged spleen?

Thank for asking to HCM
I can understand this, you are having some kind of different and weird thinking about the problem that you have but in fact this is not at as you are thinking, like spleen enlarge, diaphragm does not expand, these are just your ideas, stop thinking in that way these could create panic, the pain that you are experiencing could be functional and would come around soon, nothing to worry about this, hope this information helps you, have nice day.
