Recently diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis of liver

Posted , 1 user is following.

Recently diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis of liver two months ago. I'm 27 years old married female and mother of two. I'm terrified and depressed. I have gained so much weight from the medications. Prednisone and imuran have horrible side effects. I pray when I go to my doctor appointment tomorrow that I can get switched to this other drug that supposed to have less side effects. I can't stand no longer than 15mins without my legs cramping severely. My hair has falling out 😢 I have severe back and abdominal pain. Anyone experiencing these symptoms and how are y'all coming?
