It all started with the blood tests, showing elevated liver enzymes, that was 3 years ago, I had ultrasound, endoscopy and a liver biopsy, none of which was conclusive. This year my consultant said he thought it was PBC, and trialed me on Urso. After 3 months the liver function test had improved. He has said now that he wants me to stay on it. Reading some blogs I find some symtoms really scarey, but up to now I'd had nothing out of the ordinary. However I do suffer from urinary infections, and recently had one. I found I then got diarrhoea, possibly due to the antibiotics. I have though suffered a bit with loose poohs in the morning. Yesterday my hands started to itch, and then I had what I think was reflux, but not sure. After my evening meal I started to get a feeling like my food was stuck, and this continued throughout the night. It's still troubling me today, but not as much, so I got some galviscon from the chemist. I'm just thinking is this the start of something else or symptoms of PBC.I'm not due to see the consultant for 5/6 weeks, though I could see my G.P, who has been very sympathetic, but doesn't realy seem to know much about the condition.
