Hi. I have been referred to a gastroenterologist but my appt is 3 weeks away and I feel I need to know how likely it is that I have pbc. I started itching about a month ago. Very similar to the itching I had in pregnancy (I had obstetric cholestasis 3 times). I felt tired and nauseous. I went to see my gp and my ALT was 478, ALP 135, CRP, ESR, Bilirubin and amylase were all elevated. I was positive for ANA but negative AMA. 2 weeks ago I became slightly jaundiced. I was away from home at the time so went to A&E and was admitted under the surgeons who put it down to gallstones (although there was no blockage of the bile ducts). The jaundice has now gone, the itching has settled of its own accord and all that remains is fatigue. I lost my husband 18 months ago and have 3 young sons so I am feeling a bit vulnerable and need answers.
Any advice/insight would be greatly appreciated.
