First off, if my rheumy wasn't married I'd marry him. He was absolutely wonderful. He did an exam and sat and talked to me explained things asked me if I had questions. He even said the questions I asked were great questions!
I was a little confused when he said I didn't have Lupus. So I said than why do I have to keep taking this medicine. He said cause you still have A/I it's just not Lupus. He looked over all my old records and said I have Primary Billiary Cirrosis. I didn't even know that was an A/I redface . He said my ANA is kind of rare and my teter is high that there is a high propabilty of something else coming up but for now my bloodwork looks good. yeah He said he was going to talk to my doctor and suggest me seeing another kind of (ologist) about a liver biopsy. sad
Anyway I have no idea what all of this amounts to since it was kind of thrown to me as a curve ball. All and all though I at least feel like I was respected and talked to and treated like a human being. He did mention Imuran and somthing else that I can't remember but he left things where they are for now.
So that's it for this neck of the woods. Anyone that knows anything about this stuff please feel free to let me in on it.
thank you
love

Oh thanks rosie, I'd love to stick around. Since PBC is an auto immune disease and and I still have pain and dibilitating fatique and still have to take the plaquenil and steroids I can at least sympathize with all you lupies. Besides you guys have gotten me through so much as long as I'm still welcome to be here I ain't going anywhere. Oh from what I have read there is no cure for PBC unless it gets to transplant stage. On my knees praying that doesn't happen.

love ya

Hi Carol,
  I'm glad to hear you don't have Lupus and will be hanging around with us. I'm sorry to hear of your new dx though...((Hugs)). If you google "Primary Billiary Cirrosis" you will find alot of info on it.
  It's great that you like your new Rheumy and he is getting you answers and starting you on a good treatment plan. I hope you will start to feel much better soon.
  Please take care and let us know when you have to have a liver biopsy. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Thanks bab's, Gosh it's been along time since we have caught up on things. I know you been busy and I've been gone. How are things going with you? Have you been feeling ok or am completely out of the loop these days. Yeahit was funny my friend that has leukimia went with me and she was so impressed she wants to change doctors lol. It took me 4 months to see him but he was great. If anyone is around the witchta area he name is Steen Mortensen. I know we can't use their names to say anything bad but I will give him all kinds of praise he's awesome.
love ya

Hi Carol,
  He sounds like a great doctor! I'm sure he will take good care of you... :-) .
  I'm doing pretty good. Tks for asking. My dad has his colon surgery on the 15th. I start Cardiac Rehab on the 17th. I have been working more hours and my body is feeling it, so I will be slowing down. I have to take care of my dad when he gets out of the hospital so I need to save my enery.
  Please take care and good luck with the tests on your liver. I'm praying for you to get alot better.
                                                       Love ya, Babs

Hi Judi lol, yeah that's pretty much the story of my life. But than most guys my age are married anyway. I used to ask for a rich man now I'll just settle for one that's breathing tongue .

 

Hi Omega, Thanks for your support. Yes I was really nervous after my last rheumy. I was stressed out the whole morning imagining what a nightmare I had in store so it was a pleasant surprise.

Hi Kris, thank you sweetie it goes both ways. I will never be far away if anyone here needs me. I know I can always count on any of you too. I will keep everyone updated.

hugs

Carol,

You sound so good and I can just imagine what a relief it is to have a good doctor (finally!) who talks to you like you have a mind instead of just a disease, plus you really get your money's worth when they're good to look at. I'm so glad you don't have lupus, but sorry that you have primary biliary cirrosis on top of your COPD. I hope you're feeling ok. The weather has improved down here and it's cooling off so I hope you're breathing is easier. Keep us informed Carol. You've been on my mind a lot this week.

Love you,

Thanks Patty, I actually tried to find a support group for it but all I found was ones for hepatitis and alcohol related cirrosis. Which isn't the same thing. I have to see my regular pcp tomorrow for a chest xray to check the pnemonia so I'm sure she'll have somthing to tell me. Yes it is getting cooler. in fact yesterday it was down right cold in here in the morning. I hope you are feeling better with the weather changes.

love ya

(((Hugs))) Carol. I'm SO glad your new rheumy was so wonderful! It sure makes dealing with any problems easier when they talk to you like you are intelligent! That's great to here about your dx not being lupus, but strange feeling at the same time. Maybe with this more accurate dx, he'll be able to get you feeling better. I do expect you to stay here though! Besides, obviously your symptoms with this new dx are going to be very lupus-like, so we still need you! Take care and keep us updated!

Carol,

I don't know what to say except welcome to the world of PBC.  I lived with the diagnosis of lupus for about a year and was diagnosed in August with Primary Biliary Cirrhosis and my gastroenterologist (which is the kind of doc you need to see about this) told me I probably never had lupus and that the high ANA and alk phos were most likely from the PBC and NOT lupus.  I thought I was the only one with this PBC.  I just happened to log in here tonight and try to catch up on what had been going on with everyone and your post was the first I opened and I was shocked to see someone else with my diagnosis as well.  I also had to have a liver biopsy.  When you see your gastro doc, ask for an AMA blood test.  It is the confirming (99.5% of the time) for PBC.  I am now on medication to halt/hopefully stop the PBC from progressing.  It was weird to find I didn't have lupus but also frustrating to find out I had a rare autoimmune liver disease.  Look up PBCers online and there is a LOT of information on the disease.  I wish I could say I am happy with our diagnosis but I am still struggling with the emotions of having been wrongly diagnosed with lupus and living with the pain and horrible fatigue for a year with no real relief from any of my docs for it.  Now, with the new diagnosis, I am working with my gastro doc to get me on a regimen of med Ursodiol and adjusting dosages and such.  I hope your pneumonia is all cleared up and that you are feeling better.  Keep us updated on how you are doing.  I will be reading here regularly as even though we don't have lupus, the support and encouragement and loving people are wonderful here.  I read the posts and the community feeling here is so great.

Hi Carol--
Congratulations on not having lupus, sorry about the PBC. Liver disease is a real pain sometimes and actually runs with a lot of ofther AI problems. Even endocrine problems. In a way, its another type of lupus, but not as bad usually short term. It can drag on and on till you're an old granny with a liver like shoe leather and you can still be up and kicking. It's amazing how much abuse our livers can take, after all, look at all the meds we take that hurt them. Its good he found out the right thing. My liver problem also causes sjogrens, and my mistreatment for my liver condition in the past could have caused lupus, it certainly made me much sicker. The only thing I can really say that is negative that happens with people with any type of liver problems is that they try to deny you pain medicine and expect you to suffer more, because they consider pain management the least important part of treatment usually and they want you to keep off everything. Diabetes tends to run with liver problems, as does high cholesterol, and you have to be very picky about which meds to take if you get these problems, because many will make your liver condition worse. The key is to get a really good hepatologist, not a gi guy but someone that specializes in livers, unless the gi comes extremely highly recommended. I go to Borland-Groover every year or so and it is a research clinic that only does GI and specializes in livers and they are up on all the latest advances. It's good to go to a place like that at least once a year to make sure your doc is up on things because I always get new info when I go. For my family, complications from liver disease tend to shorten our life spans by twenty to thirty years, but treatment is getting much better so I think this will change, I also have a different problem (NASH). Not much is known about NASH and NAFLD but as many as one in four people with NASH will go on to get liver transplants. I can tell you that prednisone helps me a TON, including my liver, and also that I have multiple endocrine deficiencies which is common with NASH. Well, take care and its a good thing the doc found the PBC,you might want to check the incidence of the various ai diseases with PBC just to be sure before you discontinue meds, especially if you have other non-liver related problems. Hopefully you'll get treatment and now they can really get you the right tx. I'm happy for your proper diagnosis and wish you the best on you liver. It must feel good to be home, I think that's the best part of vacations.
Love, Marji

Oh my gosh . . . my sil is in the hospital now with severe liver disease. Actually a very low number on the transplant list and they are now calling it autoimmune liver disease and they are telling her she may have lupus. I'm going to look up this PBC and see if I can access some info for her. She is SO ill with brittle diabetes, lung issues, extremely bad liver, VERY swollen, she's 50, 140 lbs and at least 16 lbs of that came on in 2 days as water and bloat . . . she is stretched out from the swelling that that liquid seeps from the skin on her legs and belly. Just horrible to watch. Everything bruises her, even a bandaid and she is in so much pain.

Carol, I'm so glad you got a great rheumy the second time around and that he was able to give you a few answers. You had better stick around here - it wouldn't be the same place without you. All of these AI diseases are so similar, as I'm sure you realize - we all share lots of symptoms and treatments.

I'm sorry to hear about your liver and that there isn't a lot that can be done for it. I'll have to do some reading about it.

Take care

Hi everyone. I'm sorry I didn't get back to all of you, but a friend of mine has leukemia and had a port put in yesterday. Her husband is out of town so I stayed over night to help her out and just got home a short bit ago. Frankly I'm pooped out! I intend to get on here tomorrow and respond to everyone. I really appreciate all of your comments and time you spent sharing with me.

Rosie I am so sorry to hear about your sister I will keep her in my prayers.

Sending everyone love and prayers

Just want to say to Rosie, sorry about SIL, liver disease is like that sometimes, my grandmother just died one day at sixty, doing housework, didn't even know she had liver disease. Its so good they found it Carol, my grandmother had a different type of disease and not a very good doctor and there were other contributing factors too, like she was trying to heal sores by bathing them in bleach and died of ruptured esophageal varices, probably in part due to chemical burns from the bleach hurting her GERD. Rosie, they should get in there and drain that swelling, called ascites. When I was in the mental hosp you wouldn't believe how many people were walking around with severe ascites from their meds of all things and no one doing anything about it. It's awful. Tell your SIL I will pray for her and there is a lot they can do to keep you going until a liver arrives, its not pleasant, but there are things they can do if that is necessary. Maybe they will be able to do some other things to help her out. One man I knew was very sick and changing his meds and diet around, draining the fluid, and putting him on some other meds really made a big difference. I'm so sorry to hear that, so suddenly. Thank goodness she is in as good a shape as she was to get through this tough time. It sounds like it could;ve been even worse.
Love, Marji

Marji . . . they transfered SIL from rehab back to hospital again to try and relieve swelling. Nothing has been said about draining ascies . . . they were talking about diuretics! I'm going to look that up and see if I can bring her some info. Thanks for the suggestions.

Blessings!
