Hi all, I’m looking for some advice really regarding Gilbert Syndrome.
Dr think I have got Gilbert’s as my Bilirubin fluctuates a lot & other Liver function test all ok.
Well since April this year I’ve suffered from Health Anxiety & had numerous blood tests etc which thank goodness all satisfactory. But My last 2 blood tests show high Bilirubin at 47. My eyes a slightly yellow & have been for over a month now. I’m having bowel issues also.But have had my stools also tested numerous of times. Maybe IBS? I don’t know.
Anyway Drs. Haven’t really explained much to me about Gilbert’s apart from it’s nothing to worry about. Well hello health anxiety sufferer here. Of course I’m going to worry. I’ve done a little research & come across things like special diets etc.. I eat pretty healthy, I’ve binged in my time tbh but only once a week twice at a push. Started drinking young. Yes I do smoke which I know is bad. I did pack up for a month But started again after this health anxiety business, which I know doesn’t makes sense cuz I do worry about the affects etc... but couldn’t cope with the withdrawal symptoms aswell as the anxiety symptoms. I’ve cut down loads & that is my aim again to pack up once I’ve got this anxiety sorted, as I’m in two minds is it anxiety or is something else!😫 Last time I had a drink was about 3 weeks ago when I went for a meal with my partner (we went to an Indian restaurant)(3x beers & 1x Wkd) took advantage of feeling better. But repaid for it the following morning of mushy stools, which I still have now.
It’s really making me paranoid & anxious with the Bilirubin levels high & yellow eyes( slightly tinged at the bottom & in corners).
I don’t know enough about this condition & if actually there can be any dangers from it. Or have the Drs. Got mixed up for another condition?
Why is it that only since this Health Anxiety that things are going wrong? Surely Anxiety can’t cause Bilirubin levels to rise? Keep thinking it’s something bad?? I’ve had 2 ultrasound on abdomen area also came back normal. But what if I have a blockage somewhere they can’t see? The pancreas, bile ducts & liver?
Please any advice about it would be very much appreciated.
I want to trust my Drs but what I’ve researched not a lot of people know much about it, so I really don’t know 🤷🏻???😫. Take Care x
