3 months or so I have been going through hot flashes, night sweats, low mood., and to top it all off 2 weeks ago the itch of PBC has been bothering me. I am 58 yrs old. Was on HRT till my PCP said she needed me to come off of it. Do to bad side effects. 2 years ago I was diagnosed with PBC and have been symptom free till 2 weeks ago. I got the itch of the disease. I just got the prescription chlorystrime and was put on antihistamines. I also use a menthol camphor lotion. Nothing has helped me yet. Am usually very active in my church but I only feel comfortable at home. Between scratching and sweating I feel very self conscious about myself. I deal with many things physically but I think this is the worse I've been in a very long time. I want to know how other PBC'ers deal with the itch? Does it make you feel "dirty" or like you have bugs? Are you self conscious? How do you deal with it?
