Signs or Symptoms of Autoimmune Hepatitis:
Fatigue is probably the most common symptom of autoimmune hepatitis.
Other symptoms include
- enlarged liver
- skin rashes
- joint pain
- abdominal discomfort
People in advanced stages of the disease are more likely to have
symptoms such as fluid in the abdomen (ascites) or mental confusion. Women
may stop having menstrual periods.
Symptoms of autoimmune hepatitis range from mild to severe. Because
severe viral hepatitis or hepatitis caused by a drug--for example, certain
antibiotics--has the same symptoms, tests may be needed for an exact
diagnosis. Your doctor should also review and rule out all your medicines
before diagnosing autoimmune hepatitis.
