Many years ago, about 14 years ago ish, aged 40 I was diagnosed with PBC. I started with horrendous itching on the soles of the feet, actually the arch of the foot, then it came up all over the body. Nothing much was done, and after a while, it dissipated. I did take anti itch tablets, forgotten the name, and used washes. But for years not thought a lot about it, and although I have suffered severely with tiredness, i have had to work, due to being self employed, and not entitled to support. I am now diabetes 2, have severe diarrhoea and/or constipation problems regularly, and having checks for lactose and or coeliac intolerance. My toes are going numb, and the itch is now all over my body, with extremely dry skin, especially hands. Has anyone got any suggestions, and/or help, I am getting so upset, it is destroying my life again, but of course I am much older, and feeling low. I want to volunteer in Africa in May for several months, and need a good insurance also. Thank you in anticipation, I would also wonder do you have face to face groups? I live in North west Leicestershire. Many thanks Susanah
