The area of distribution that you are describing matches the area of the ulnar nerve well. It may be that you have some compression of this nerve at some point along its course through the arm.
I cannot think of a way this would be related to the autoimmune hepatitis but that certainly doesn't mean it can't be from this.
I would recommend you see your doctor to have this evaluated. This way you can get a proper treatment plan also.
