Does anyone have liver involvement? My recent labs hint towards that and so do some symptoms. I am starting to feel like a hypochondriac! I have my labs...and when I go to the doctor, I am going to want to ask him about them even if he says I am fine other than a higher sed rate. I have some symptoms, but nothing we have discussed. It has been all about my lungs lately.

The only problems I have with my Liver is that when I take certain drugs it causeing elevated liver enzymes than my liver does act up so I have to stop the medications than the enzymes go back to normal......so other than that I don't have problems.

Lupie.....I was wondering if you could tell me what it feels like when your liver is inflammed?? I have been having elevated liver enzymes which we think is from the methotrexate but my rheumy took me off of this for about a month or so and the liver enzymes started to come down but still was high......so then she started me on a drug called Arava and a month later my liver enzymes were even higher then what they were on Metho.....and I was having some nausea and other problems that I think are caused from the liver. She told me to stop taking the Arava and wants me to have a ultra sound of the gall bladder and the liver. Hope to hear from you.
