Hi everyone, i would appreciate any advice as I'm new to all this and finding it a little scary. I've been unwell for past 2 years with chronic fatigue, weakness to hands and pins and needles to hands and feet, has gradually got worse over the last month with joint aches and severe head and jaw pain. Went to see my doctor who did blood tests and found my b12 was low (141) and my bilirubin raised (36) she gave me 2 weeks of b12 injections so 6 in total and after this did some further blood tests for antibodies. My AMA and IgM came back positive and so she's referred me to a gastroenterologist and thinks it may be PBC (although she did say these blood tests can be raised in healthy people). My IF to test for PA is negative by the way. I feel terrible. I'm 34 years old and feel like an old lady, every bit of me aches and I have no energy to do anything, yesterday I slept for most of the day and was still able to sleep last night for 10 hours! What's wrong with me? How can I help myself until this appointment? I don't drink, don't smoke and eat a varied healthy diet!? Why me!??
