I'd thought for a week that the very unpleasant new 'prickling' sensation that I'd developed was PBC itch, but now believe after visit to GP that it's probably peripheral neuropathy. Been diagnosed with PBC 14 yrs and only ever had mild-moderate skin irritation. Weird thing is, this pins & needles thing in both of my hands and feet was very itchy at first, definitely made me think PBC, but now is purely and distinctly a nerve tingle. GP also found reduced reflexes typical of neuropathy.
I'll have a nerve conductivity test done soon (paying for it myself as NHS would take ages) and maybe find out - but not definitely! In the meantime, any experience or suggestions please guys?
