Hi I wonder if any one else has developed a low mood and lack of self confidence since being diagnosed? I look at myself and see many changes since diagnosis, my hair is dry and falls out, my muscles seem to be much weaker than before, I have also lost muscle mass as well. I am looking tired an much older than I used to, my skin is very dry.....am I imagining it or is it as i suspect the medications I have to take. I am on prednisolone, mercaptopurine (cytotoxic cancer drug inplace of aza) urso, omeprazole and sometimes Questran, if I have issues with over production of bile. I am also concerned that the HRT I use might be causing problems for my liver. Two weeks ago, I had a mini lung collapse..the bottom right...it corrected itself within 30 mins but it was so painful. On examination my liver felt really big...I actually felt my liver myself as they examined me which was unusual. My LFT's are normal according to my gp so I don't understand why this happened. I have been told there is the possibility it could happen again.....is it written anywhere that autoimmune illnesses can cause lung collapse.......any information would be welcome Thank you xx
