Hi, I was diagnosed at the beginning of this year with PBC which was a shock as I had a blood test for a different reason and then following abnormal liver test results I had all sorts of different tests before finally being told It was PBC. I didnt feel unwell but, since starting on the ursofalk tablets I am feeling better in myself. I think this condition progresses so slowly that the physical changes such as tiredness and poor digestion become normalised. It does worry me to hear how some of you are suffering, there is such a wide range of symptoms and not knowing whether or not it will get worse is hard to ignore.
I also have brown pigmentation on my forearms mainly, which I read might be due to PBC. I never thought to show my consultant so I wondered if anyone else has this and whether it is connected. I think it is called melasma? But not sure
