Hi, I'm 34 and currently being tested for PBC- awaiting my bloods and liver scans. I've been having excessive tiredness for the last few years but always had situational circumstances to tie it to.
The last couple of months it has intensified so that sometimes I can't find the words I want to in conversations, have emarrassingky bad short term memory and some days I just have to sleep despite a decent 8 hours at night. This time there is nothing else that could be causing it.
This has been accompanied by nausea, particularly a couple of hours after eating which can last for 2 to 3 hours. Also have bad bloating, wind and greasy pooh, though somedays are worse then others and my whole body and face seem to swell.
Sometime I feel more energetic and have more mental clarity- is this normal to have symptoms wane and wax?
My mum had PBC and had 2 liver transplants in 1993 when she was 39. I'm having the tests to eliminate (hopefully) but can't help but feel worried, especially as I have two sons under 5. Sadly my mum died last year, after living a very fruitful and happy 21 years after transplantation, otherwise I could ask her.
I'd really appreciate your help,
