I was diagnosed with PBC just under 12 months ago and still feel very confused about the whole thing. I do have other health problems which include excess stomach acid, reflux and a hiatus hernia. I thought that PBC would reduce the bile getting through to the stomach, however slightly, so why do I suffer so badly with excess acid (I am taking medication for these stomach problems - Rabeprazole being an antacid type drug.) Sorry if I have rambled I have only just found this site and want to ask so much. My husband is very supportive but like me he doesn't know very much, only what we read on the PBC Foundation site, which tends to be very factual rather than anecdotal. Thanks for reading.
