Brief Answer:
Following advice.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood your concerns.

Your symptoms are typical for liver damage and if you were my patient I would have done a full blood tests including liver and pancreas panel (enzymes).

Since your pain is severe (7 out of 10) you should go immediately to emergency room to exclude any life-threatening situation ( especially acute liver failure or pancreatic issues.

If you were my atient I would do the following test:
- Abdominal ultrasound
- Blood tests with liver and pancreas enzymes

Hope this will be of help!
Wish you health!
