Hi Marji, well like everyone said it's half the battle to have a doctor you can work with. It seems like PBC is being diagnosed with A/I more and more. In fact the group I found for PBC is all caused from A/I with other A/I diseases.Somtimes I wonder if the doctors all get the memo at the same time!!!!!!!!! Anyway my rheumy called yesterday late afternoon (the nurse). Of course the answering machine picked it up . Anyway she said they sent the report to my doctor yesterday So I am just waiting for a call from my PCP. Usually they try to find me the right doctor before they call that way they can tell me where they want me to go and who they want me to see. My lungs have been giving me alot of trouble and my throat actually my esophogas makes me choke sometimes which is scarey being alone here. I truly know how you feel about not getting the help you needed 13 years ago. That's how I felt when after 6 years of wasting time they said I didn't have asthma when all along they could have at least helped me with meds to slow down the COPD. It's enough to loose faith in doctors. Anyway please keep us updated and I hope they get you the help you need to get feeling better.
