See your doctor.: We don't have enough detail here to guess as to what's wrong with you, but knowing that you're having pain and that your ALT is high indicates that you need more work up. I would go back to your doctor for that. You may need a referral to a gastroenterologist for a liver evaluation. Do not ignore it. Good luck.
