Also do you think( when you now think of all the symptoms you can have with PBC) if you actually had it for much longer than when you were diagnosed? I am asking as I do wonder if that is the way I am heading as bloods not so good at present. I was diagnosed in 2002 after suffering the symptoms for a yr but when I think back I have had stomach probs since the age of 15 (27 yrs ago!) and suffered with fatigue and wrist pains since about the age of 19 but thought it was just the effects of studying and socialising as most students do! Any comments would be welcome. Thanks.
