In brief: What's causing pain?
The liver itself has no pain fibers, as true with brain--either can be sliced with a surgical tool and no pain.
The capsule or linings of each organ has pain fibers. Unlikely to have 'liver pain' unless something is irritating the lining. So, find out what's causing the pain, and how to stop it will become clear. Try the following: stop-if ingesting-alcohol, coffee, hot/spicy foods, Aspirin drugs.
