Welcome to the forum. I'm sorry about your diagnosis. I have lupus and fibro as well. I take a low dose of Amitriptyline (Elavil) for my fibro. Helps me to sleep and takes the edge off the pain. Doesn't work for everyone, but many of us take it. Another new drug that is looking positive is Lyrica. The gals in the Fibromyalgia forum talk about it a lot. I'm curious myself and will be discussing it with my rheumy next week.
I know exactly what you're dealing with in regards to the high liver enzymes. I had a medication allergy this past June and the rash attacked my liver. My enzymes were over 1000 as well. The liver is an amazing organ! Within 2 months, the enzymes were back to normal, and actually better than before the allergy happened! Isn't that something! So have great hope in that your liver will normalize as well. Even with autoimmune hep, once you're getting the right treatment, your liver should respond well. I found that drinking LOTS of water really helped in getting those numbers down.
How are you toleratiing your medications? Has the plaquenil kicked in yet? How much prednisone are you on? We're here to support you and answer any questions you have okay. You won't be going through this alone. The beginning stages of your diagnosis are the hardest. Please lean on us for any support you need okay!
