The pain is sometimes dull (like at the moment) though can present a shooting pain. What do you mean by insidious on onset?
It just doesn't feel like a muscular pain. Sometimes the pain can also raidate to the front, on or around the liver area. If I have had LFT, what would be the reason to have one again? My concern was that I ahd done damage, and you read about Cirrhosis, though again I don't want to diagnose myself. I'm sure there would be othe rmore serious symptoms other than pain on both sides, and teh LFT would have come back abnormal?
