So I was diagnosed with Gilberts a few months back, even though I've known I have it for many years (my mum has it too, and its hereditary, so it only made sense). My biggest problem at the moment has been a constant crushing exhaustion, and I'm wondering if anyone else has experienced this? All the doctors I've seen so far have said that exhaustion (along with the vertigo I get regularly that I've heard is another symptom of Gilberts) has nothing to do with the disease, but I really don't believe thats true. They've all been less than helpful doctors in other areas, and I don't entirely trust what they have to say.
Doctors are monitoring my Thyroid and iron levels at the moment (I have borderline hypothyroidism but not enough to diagnose it, and I'm taking iron suplements). Gilberts is the only thing that would be causing this, since none of the 5 doctors, 3 blood tests, and countless appointments I've had in the last 10 months can give me any answers, except for insisting it's not Gilberts. Can anyone tell me if their Gilberts has caused them problems like me?
