Although I have been a member of HealthUnlocked since 2012 I have never written a question but followed with interest the questions and comments of other sufferers. A little about myself - I am 65yrs old and diagnosed with pbc in 2000 following various tests and eventual liver biopsy. My specialist is based at Kings College and following check ups originally every 3, 6,and 9 months I now and for many years have annual apts and thank goodness remained relatively well. I have been fortunate since being on urso 750 mg daily since March 2000 to have no itch and to be perfectly honest apart from being a bit tired wouldn't know I had pbc until 10 days ago!!! The itch has returned big time, but thankfully only at night. I have very little sleep as I spend most of the night out of bed trying to keep cool which helps the itch oh to have a decent nights sleep. Prior to the itch I was sleeping for 8 hours. The reason for me writing now is to ask all of you out there, "Do you suffer with raised red spots on the face, chest and back"? which I have experienced for some many months now. I went to see my GP last week and she said the chest was spider nevi but the rash on my back was not the same thing. I am currently waiting for an apt with a Dermatologist, I will let you know the outcome. But if I have some fellow suffers your comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
