When I saw my specialist she also tested me for autoimmune hepatitis along with Pbc - from what I've read the presence of another autoimmune disease as well as pbc isn't good and means a person is progressing farther.
i think i have arthritis (i'm 41) but started noticing some pain in my index finger joints (hard to unscrew a bottle of water now) and now i feel it it all my hand joints sometimes. yesterday my joints were swelling and there was swelling in my hands.
I am nervous what this will mean if i do have arthritis...i know some of the information online isn't accurate - so can someone tell me is that true? is the presence of another autoimmune disease mean i could be progressing in this disease (pbc)
