The onlly pain killer you can take without tylenol in it is oxycodone (Percodan). Isn't it ironic that you can take narcotics but not anti-inflamatories.
I have never really experienced any pain with my Hep C., nor with the cirrosis, I'm now dealing with. I have been blessed to have this taken 29 years to develop. You see I had a blood transfusion while in the Air Force on June 14, 1978. The reason I know the date is because it was the day after I had my son. He feels bad, but I told him I would have drank that blood knowing it had Hep C in it just to hold him in my arms, and to have seen him turn into the fine man he is.
I haven't heard of AIH, I know there are patches now with narcotic's in there which will bypass the liver. But, you either have to have a Doc that suffers him/herself and knows what they are doing.
I found out when I had Hep C in 1998, that I knew more then most doctors, you tend to learn a lot about a disease when they tell you, you have one. The Govenor of Montana, sent me to Congress for the Hep C forum, most people do not understand that there is no federal funding for this disease. It's incredibly sad.
You are all in my prayers, it's funny about the skin and muscle pain, I've just started having that my self.
