I am a 53 year old woman from London.was feeling ill for over 2 years. Feeling tired washed out depressed and angry. A routine hospital appointment picked up wrong blood levels in August 2014. Wrong blood tests carried on until November 2015 when I was diagnosed with under active thyroid. Still felt unwell after starting medication.had to get a bit shirty with my gpafter more wrong blood tests. Finally sent me to a liver specialist at st Mary's Paddington. As soon as I sat down she said I think you have pbc. Never heard of it!!! Was officially diagnosed in June 2016. On 1000mg of urso a day. My bowels seem to be affected the most.yellow putty stools one day then constipated and then normal for a few days.doctor says if liver tests don't settle I will need a liver biopsy. Have had a bone scan and ultra scan will get results in 6 weeks. Hopefully they don't find anything else wrong. Can cope with what I have but don't want any thing else.
I have so much gas I could blow balloons up for a living.
