In Feb 2013 I had routine bloods taken, I tested strongly for mitochondrial antibodies. I have been sent from neurologist, to gynae, back to GP and then finally to a gastroenterologist this week.
I got asked am I itchy? NO! Do I get tired easily? NO! Have I ever turned yellow? NO! Is my urine dark in colour? NO!
I got told my ultra sound scan showed no signs of cirrhosis.
The consultant had a feel of my tummy, couldn't feel anything.
Then concluded by saying the blood tests are saying I have the gene for PBC but at present I don't have it.
The only pain I have is on my right side, above my pelvic/hip.
My question is..... Should I worry about this pain, is it related to this PBC condition?
I'm 37, hardly drank in my life, do not smoke and have never smoked. I'm overweight, have polysystic ovaries, anxiety disorder and coccyx pain.
My medication is citalopram and pregablin.
My consultant does not want to see me for 6 months, on my return to her I need recent blood tests.
So basically I'm in limbo about what to do now
