Legit reason for anxiety/but suddenly out of control
« on: January 29, 2014, 04:14:27 PM »
I posted something about my liver enzymes on here and my concerns.  Well I saw the nurse practioner yesterday and she was as concerned as I was and decided to get some more tests.  They moved up my ultrasound (as I thought they would) and I have it week from today.

I have been non-stop googling.  Totally fell off the wagon.  I am convinced that I have Primary Biliary Cirrhosis, that my mom had.  There aren't that many things, liver wise, that can cause the readings I have.  One is cancer, but I truly dont' think thats it. 

I know I am making myself have symptoms that I wouldn't be otherwise because of all the research I'm doing.  One of the reasons is because my doctor seemed to brush these readings under the rug and now they are high.  PBC can be slowed in many cases with drug therapy if caught early.  Now I fear that he has waited too long and my chances will be worse.

I'm actually a mess for the first time in a long time with my anxiety.  I haven't felt this uptight and helpless in years.  I want to cry and sleep and I can't concentrate.  I read all the symptoms of this disease into me.

The thing is, I may actually have it, but I can't act this way as it will be very detrimental to my treatment.

I'm a rational person and I'm having a relapse....

I'm sorry you're having to go through this. Stay as strong as you can and don't get ahead of yourself.

Do not Google anymore! No more! It doesn't do any good at all. It will only make things worse. Let the doctors do their jobs, and you focus on keeping yourself occupied and positive. If you need a distraction or just need to talk to some people about what's going on with you, chat is always available, and there are tons of great people on there that you can chat with.

I feel like I have made everyone around me sick of talking about this stuff.  I guess if I actually have it, they will be more sympathetic, but right now, i know they are like, "yeah, here she goes again"  even my husband.

I know that PBC can either be a chronic, deal with the rest of your life thing, or a death sentence depending on how the liver reacts.

Hopefully if I do have it, its the former.  thanks for posting

oh and on a crazier note, googling has let me to pancreatic cancer sites. 

Of course my tests don't show that.

Doc called while I was at work (nurse) to give me GGT results.  they were closed when I got home, so I have to wait till morning1

I had high liver enzymes when I had a bacterial infection. The list is right, don't google. Wait for the tests.
