Hi I'm totally new to this having liver disease works! I have never drank my whole 55 years. Never done any kind of drugs and now my liver wants to get weird. My actin levels were 37 and they told me it should not have been more than 20. What lead me to the dr was this constant pain in my right side. Not an I can't stand it pain but one that hardly ever goes away. about a year ago I was diagnosed with back issues. My doctor gave me hydrcodone for pain! I have never taken more than 1 pill a day and most the time I'll do half and just rest till the pain stops. Did I damage my liver by taking the pain meds? Oh and I never have had to take them every day. I am terrified! I've been blessed with pretty much being healthy. Dr has ordered 2nd round of labs and we r waiting on ct scan results! He said he was thinking auto immune hepatitis??? Sure would like to hear from anyone suffering from this

Hi jusjunkin and welcome,
Hydrocodone tabs will not likely have much effect on your liver, at the dose your taking.

Your test for actin (smooth muscle antibody), may be the cause. The 2nd rounds of labs, will tell your dr if you have AIH. The Ct scan will tell your dr, the condition of your liver.

Let me know your results . If you can get a copy of your labs it would be helpful. If your positive, we have a moderator who also has (AIH), who is very knowledgeable.. and could be helpful for you.
