Could you have pulled a muscle

I’m not a doctor but if it was 3 days ago and unless you drank an incredible amount (say a litre of gin) it is unlikely to be liver damage/pain. People have died after drinking big amounts but they would be in severe trouble by day 3 - really ill, confused, signs of organ failure etc. more likely to be something else - if you were drunk, is it possible you’ve banged against something and not been aware of it?

try painkillers, rest, lots of water and if you think you may have bumped against something, try ice pack. If it’s not getting any better soon, you may need to see a doctor.

Medic here. I'm not going to dispense advice to you here but from the brief information provided, my list of causes is broad and acute liver failure is nowhere near the top.

If you're concerned go to A and E, if concerned but not that concerned get an emergency appointment with GP.
