I posted on here recently that I had all over body itching.
I had a scan this morning of my liver/pancreas/and gall bladder, seems I have a large gall stone, so I assume this is what has been causing me to itch, [ apart from other symptoms] something to do with the bile ??
Last week My ESR was raised at 31 and CRP 16 I assumed it was a flare of PMR as I was also "achey" and so tired, so upped my steroid dose !!! Probably not a flare and maybe my gall bladder was inflammed ?
I was really worried, as I had to stop Azothioprine recently due to bad side effects and thought maybe it had affected my pancreas or liver but according to the radiologist they looked OK. I probably had this gall stone for ages, but maybe the Azo. made it worse, who knows ??
I have to make an appointment next week to see my GP as by then he will get the results.
So it's a fat free diet in the meantime till I see my GP. Thankfully I am not in much pain, just feel uncomfortable, with a bloated feeling, very tired, and awful yellow bowel movements, and of course this relentless itching. I had to take an anti histamine for some relief.
