Knowing these feelings I am having are the same as so many other people does help. I was told 2 months ago still feel shocked. I have spent most of today reading this site ,still feel quite depressed but a little less lonely. I have Rheumatoid arthritis, hiatus hernia, bronchiectsis and now PBC. I was getting so confused as what pain symtoms were from what ailment, sore achy hand, chest pains, very sore stomach,bloated,pains in my arms,achy and slightly swollen legs and complete exhaustion. Reading these blogs has made me realise that most can/may be PBC, so I do need to really talk to my consultant, and get more answers and not brush off..I am not due to see him till June, but I think I will ring and try and bring the appointment forward. i have a brilliant lung Dr so will ask her when I see he next week to help . I still feel a fraud, that people think "here she goes again" my health history has made me feel that no one really cares!! My family try but only see me dragging myself around doing the domestics or lying down,, no more ranting and thanks for listening to who ever reads this, it felt good to write.
