I have negative AMA, abnormal ALTs, high cholesterol, chronic fatigue and itchy rashed skin,and a Mum who died of liver cirrhosis after PBC when she was 56. She had similar symptoms to fibromyalgia (not diagnosed with PBC until after death in post mortem so I assume she was AMA negative) for many years, and a few years ago I was diagnosed with Fibromyagia.
I have been badgering GPs to let me have further liver tests but UP UNTIL this week, I had no abnormal LFTs. Now I have these markers, should I insist on a reference for a scan or biopsy when I go to the GPs tomorrow, and could anyone tell me what is the best scan to request (so I don't look a dope).
I had an ultrasound on my abdomen 5 years ago which showed a fatty liver, a thing which has only pursuaded the GPs that I eat like a pig and do no exercise. I have been told an ultrasound doesn't show the bile ducts though.
Any feedback before I brave the doctor again in the morning would be great, please.
