Hi just recently been diagnosed with PCB.. In 2007 I was diagnosed with autoimmune haemolytic anaemia..never knew wot hit me.
I attend my Blood consultant every 6mths..over three 6mth periods of my bloods being checked my consutlant notice a increase of my LFTs.
was refered to liver specialist, has ultrasound an more blood tests and finaly a liver biopsy.
And yea its been confirmed as PCB...after a period of feeling sorry for my self I found this site, and what a releife it is to read other peoples situations an side effects ...av never felt right an due to have issues with my blood I put it down to being anemic..
I do some exsercise..love cycling but so many times I was expericing sore ankles and wrists for months before I was diagnosed..said to my blood consultant an he put it down to wear an tear..getting older..being only 44 I didny think I was that old...lol
My heart on many occasions feels like it skips beats an beats to fast sometimes it catches my breath...(thats quite scary)..my doc said it was normal for that to happin...I did feel it wasnt normal..but who was I to question a Doctor eh???
Im lucky for now as I dont suffer the Itchy skin...
I am constantly tired ...but like I said I put this down to being anemic..but at times even walking up stairs I was exausted..I did feel like a was constantly moaning about tiredness..not really understanding what was happening to my body.
Itchy ears...OMG...lol...Ive had that for about 2yrs..god it rips ma knittin that...as av made then bleed..not too bad but wi the scratching an pokin.
I dread getting my bloods done as now am scared of what else they find..bit paranoid..lol
They say life begins at 40....well mines has went pearshaped..lol
Im no a pessimistic person ..my glass is always half full...
wid like to say am great at spellin but hey ho am no...lol
Thank you all for your input on this site it has put alot oh my worries an fears to rest just noo...many, many thanks to you aw...jules
