Autoimmune Hepatitis

My wife has recently been diagnosed with auto immune hepatitis. She is experiencing severe throbbing pain in her right shoulder that radiates down her right side. Is this characteristic of this disorder? Doctors have been unwilling to prescribe pain meds. She has a heart valve and is blood thinners. Has anyone had experience with this and what pain meds are safe?

Re: Autoimmune Hepatitis

Hi, sorry to hear of your wife's diagnosis. I too have this disease and I wish her well getting it under control. I had / and continue at times to have right side pain, over the liver area that can radiate upwards of the shoulder, and in to my back as well. My specialist and other Dr's have discouraged the use of pain meds, although I have resorted to regular Advil products at times. The use of Tylenol (even regular strength) has been greatly discouraged, almost a warning to not use it. Hopefully she is on a treatment plan that will have the disease under control in the coming months. Heating pad / warmed up magic bag may give a little relief - I pretty much sleep with mine.
