Hi - I was well until this summer when I was diagnosed with a symptomatic Celiac disease. Abnormal blood test confirmed by small bowel biopsy. Went gluten free and then developed debilitating polyarthritis - started on steroids. Elevated alk phos led to suspicions of PBC. Had liver biopsy last month which confirmed stage 1 PBC. In interim developed SOB/ chest pain. Now recovering fromVATs procedure with lung resection and biopsy which revealed chronic inflammation and fibrosis of lung - pleuritis. Doctors are puzzled never seeing this constellation - celiac, polyartritis,PBC and Pleuritis. They say it is an overlap autoimmune condition. Still on steroids ( since August) plan is to wean steroids and start on more potent immunosuppressive agent along with URSO. Interestingly my alk phos was found to elevated only one time in August and since then my LFTs have been normal .
Any thought or anyone with a similar story
