I need to know more...

Posted , 3 users are following.

I am in the stages of being tested for PCB. All my bloodwork points to PBC and doctor has requested an MRI which I go to in a couple days and a liver biopsy which hospital hasnt called me to be scheduled as yet. 

My issues have been itching which is so severe that I have scratched color off my body. I am light brown complected and have these missing patches of color so I keep covered up alot. I have turned darker in color. People have been asking if I am tanning. I'm not. My doc said it's the bilirubin doing this to me and some days I can look real dark. Not good. And weightloss is a problem. I'm small already and lost 20lbs I look horrible. I am not on any meds currently. I await all my tests and hope a solution comes with ease for me and I respond great to treatment. My doc said PCB is an autoimmune disease. I new to all this but have been suffering to this day for the last 1.5 years. 

Whomever reads this, I thank you for your help and info and God bless.
