Thanks for your question.

Marijuana use can damage the lungs. You say a chest X-ray was normal which is reassuring. My next thought would be the heart, which is why I asked about cocaine, because this can cause heart attacks in young people. Have you had an EKG to check your heart? If an MRI of the abdomen was normal, this rules out problems with your pancreas, spine, kidneys, and liver, all of which I was also considering. Do you drink alcohol? If so, testing your pancreas and liver further with blood testing would be appropriate. Otherwise, I would recommend cutting down on marijuana and using over-the-counter laxatives.

Detailed Answer:
Fatty liver grade 1 does not cause pain. Your mention of throat pain suggests this may be related to marijuana use after all, as marijuana irritates both the lungs and throat. I think it best for you to stop smoking marijuana for a few months and see if the pain subsides.

I have NAFLD which was discovered when my surgeion was about to remove a cancer tumor in the cnetral part of the liver. He did not do so when he saw the fatty liver. I do not drink alcohol and am not obeisi but my natural father died young with cirrohsis of the liver. The tumor was killed with an ablation and then chimo beeds in artery by tumor. I take Omeprazole 40 mg ever morning an hour before eating for the naseau which I have experience for years (actually led to the discovery of the tumr). Recently I began juicing for breakfast, and increased my exercise routine to everyother day for at least 30 min of fast walk or jug and li? I eat mostly chicken and fish or shrimp, baked or stir fried. I d like to get off the Omeprazole.

Hello, for years now I have nausea during and after eating and a lot of times when I m not eating. I wake up with bad indigestion every day and suffer all day with it whether I eat or not. A lot of times it feels like something is stuck. I ve had my gallbladder checked and it functions properly. I was told I do have a fatty liver. I ve lost about 15 pounds since November without trying because of the nausea and not being able to finish eating. Could it be possible that I have a food allergy even though I don t have to eat to feel bad? I also have bloody stools and lately loose bowels almost not making it to the bathroom. I ve had 2 colonoscopies with normal results. I could go on but I think this is enough to start with.
