The area of your numbness sounds like it is the ulnar nerve area.
It may be that you have some compression of your ulnar nerve causing your symptoms.
I would recommend you see your doctor for an evaluation. I think it probably isn't related to your autoimmune hepatitis but an evaluation will help be sure.
