I was diagnosed with AIH 8 years ago and have been on prednisone in various doses for just as long. I was wondering if anyone with AIH has experienced inflammation in other areas of their bodies as a result of this disease or due to the steroids. I have been experiencing inflammation in my spine, muscles, and ligaments that have been causing a great deal of pain but no one has said that this is in relation to my diseases. Im wondering if all this inflammation including the inflammation in my liver that helped diagnose me with AIH is symptomatic of some other illness or if this is just AIH progressing or if the other inflammation is just my bad luck?
Thank you for you help!
Strength, Patience, & Confidence
