Welcome to HCM!

After reading your question, I can say from my clinical experince that you should get an ultra sounds abdomen, liver function test, thyroid test, lipid profile, sugar levels done once again. Some times increased cholesterol and reduced thyroid can also cause fatty liver, so by treating these it can be cured.

The symptoms of pain at right side when ever there is disturbance form routine diet, suggest that there can be a liver problem, may be fatty liver. Fatty liver also increases with consumption of alcohol, consumption of oily food, and junk food too. Please take precaution while eating food outside, avoid spicy and oily food ( there is significant oil/ fat in cakes, bread, sweets etc, read the ingredients to check!).

Only after physical examination, tests and investigation we can tell ten exact cause and treat it appropriately.
For occasional pain and discomfort one can take -- Omeprazole twice a day, half an hour before meals, as and when needed or for a week. However, this is just symptomatic management and not curative.

You don't need to be fearful, as fatty liver can be successfully treated even when you are staying alone with medicines and taking precautions in diet.
Please meet a doctor.
Hope the reply is useful for you and get well soon!
