I had to take an antiviral for 10 days, a strong one.  I had some pain in I think was my liver maybe spleen, but it went away.  Then on the 12 day I had two large glasses of wine.


Now the pain is back constantly, feels like my spleen did the first year.


Trey or anyone do you have any idea what caused this and will it go away.

I assume the drug may have been acyclivir or something like it.  These drugs can be hard on the liver and kidneys.  Kidney or liver pain are a definite possibility.  Check with the doc who gave you the antiviral.


If not, you would need to have a GP doc look at the specifics.  The spleen, liver, pancreas, kidneys, gall bladder, stomach, intestines are all in there together.  Actual organ pain vs gas pain can be hard to distinguish.  You have said before you have some IBS.
