Gilbert's advice

Posted , 2 users are following.

I am a 42 yr old personal trainer, recently diagnosed with gilbert's syndrome.

Since I can remember I have always suffered badly after a major cold, flu, food poisoning, these illnesses come and go and often I am left feeling very spacey, so in a way I'm glad I finally know what is going on.

This last episode of "spacey" head has lasted a month.

If doesn't feel like it's going, I guess I'm asking will it go? It has in the past but I've never had it for this long, out-of all the symptoms of gilbert's, this is the only one I seem to get and only when I am ill.

If anyone can help it would be really appreciated.

    i was diagnosed 14 months ago, it came as  a shock I had never heard of it before, like you I only get the spaced out feel, but my bilirubin readings were  not massively over, I had had a blood test the year before and it was normal then, 

    i too keep really fit and drink plenty of water, my spaced out feeling comes and goes, it's not there all the time, I'm hoping that's the only symptoms I get their are some awful stories on here on how bad it makes people feel, I guess it depends on how high your readings are.

    sorty I wasn't much help, hope you feel better soon
