Primary Biliary Cirrhosis: I have several medical conditions going on, however, the primary biliary cirrhosis is the potentially life-threatening concern for me. I would like to connect with others who are living with this condition. I am also interested in new treatments and information about the disease.
My primary symptom is fatigue. I also have fibromyalgia, so it's difficult to know which is affecting me more.
I recently read that women of Northern European descent have a higher rate of this disease. I am American, but have a large amount of Finnish "blood". I'm curious about the heritage of others afflicted with this disease.
Herniated disk in my neck: This has become the front-runner when it comes to my health problems. I'm looking at an anterior cervical discectomy with fusion (same surgery I had 10 yrs ago at a different level). I am in a lot of pain from this and doing my best just to manage and get through each day.
Fibromyalgia: What a pain this one is! Literally! Add brain fog (including fog from the pain killers and muscle relaxers for my herniated disk) and I'm a walking zombie. Trying to work, but it's next to impossible.
Wishing everyone the best.
