I was diagnosed with PBC in December 2016. My liver biopsy staged me at a 2. I started URSO early January of this year. I had horrible itching (how I got the ball rolling on my diagnosis). I think URSO added to it. My doctor started me on Prevalite and within a week my itching had gotten better...not great but better.
Now my question is...have any of you experienced darkening of your skin all over your body? I believe it's call hyperpigmentation. I am definitely experiencing it. Will I always have it or will it fade if we get my liver enzymes down? I am also taking medication for hypertension and read that it could cause hyperpigmentation. So I don't know what to think.
