Hi all i got diagnosed with pbc 2 months ago when a routine blood test showed raised liver enzymes. Everything else came back perfect, normal blood pressure, good cholesterol healthy heart and no signs of diabetes or thyroid problems. I was sent to see a consultant and to have an ultrasound where it showed i had pbc and was put on Ursofalk. I am at early stage of a fatty liver.She said i have had it for a while but as i thought the itchiness was part of my Fibromyalgia i did"nt bother going to see the dr about it.I don"t have much itching just now and again and mainly at night when i go to bed. I had my gallbladder removed about 9 yrs ago and had a bacterial infection called H-Pylori early this year (where i was put on 3 different antibiotics 7 day course to cure it ) which my consultant could be a factor in this illness. She said i look so healthy lol. I do get fatigued and achy painful muscles but i put that down to my Fibromyalgia as that can be very painful and debilitating at times. I have been for a second ultrasound today to check the elasticity of my liver and my abdomen and i go for an endoscopy at the end of the month. My question is as i suffer fatigue with Fibromyalgia and fatigue is a symptom of PBC will my fatigue be doubled or just stay the same as what i get now.
