My partner Mike has been hugely affected by various liver diseases: Alcoholic Liver disease, Hep C, and Liver Cancer. I have no AIH experience, but for reading what folks who post here.
HOWEVER, it seems that regardless of the underlying CAUSE of liver disease, the symptoms over time are about the same.
Mike had cramping in legs, toes, and hands often. Most often in the night. They had him supplement with Magnesium and other things that seemed to help and then later, did not help. Ask you doc or the nurse practioner in his office.
I suspect that when your get your meds balanced (which can be time consuming and very individual) and you move to a maintenance mode, most AIHers do well, and their symptoms settle down.
We have several AIHers posting regularly, so I hope we hear from them.
