Pain in the back near the liver. Could this be due to alcohol consumption?

hi, Ive had a non-severe dull ache in the right-side of my torso (and back to a certain extent) for a couple of days now. it is in the general area of my liver and it is most noticable when i lay down at night to sleep. Its not a pain which keeps me awake at night, though often in certain sleeping positions it feels more like a sharp cramp , and I have the urge to stretch . I have no idea if it has anything to do with my liver, but it is in that area and feels like its beneath my ribcage. I m a 29 yr old male, and I dont drink heavily (or much at all these days), though in my early 20s i did indulge probably a little too much. Is this something I should get checked? many thanks

hi santosh
consult a general physician or gastoentrologist and if required get liver function test and abdominal ultrasound examination to rule out liver ailment.
If everything is fine with your liver then consult orthopedic surgeon
