Hello again

Sorry to hear about your problem

The pain in this area can be due to a liver pathology or a gall bladder problem or some muscular issue involving the diaphragm.
Some investigations may be required to reach a diagnosis. These include
ESR
LFTs
Blood CP
USG abdomen

The twitching feeling can be due to muscle twitches that may be involving the diaphragm. This can occur due to irritation of the diaphragm. It can be caused by enlargement of the covering of the liver.
Your best course would be to visit a doctor preferably a gastroenterologist who would be able to examine you and feel the liver to reach a diagnosis.

Welcome back

Well this can be confirmed or otherwise if you undergo some tests like I have mentioned above.. LFTs alone can tell us about the functional status of the liver and this is a must.
