Comment from: Dard, 45-54 Female (Caregiver) Published: December 22

I have had this problem for more than two years and after seeing 14 different dermatologists I was diagnosed with paronychia. I have tried many different medications including antibiotic, antifungal, steroid and nothing seem to work. I am in a lot of pain and can't do anything.

Because of liver disease, I am having very low hunger or appetite and eat very less; sometimes I also have loose motions and it has been more than 10 days.

He has hepatitis C, type 2 diabetes. He got very disoriented, stopped eating, had insomnia, was bleeding rectally, unable to hold or know when he's going to have a bowel movement, couldn't breathe. When he got to the hospital they admitted him right away into ICU and put him on life support.

Just discovered that i have hepatitis B and chronic hepatitis B as well. I believe I've had it since 1992 and survived 19 years without treatment. I intend living another 20 and more. I'm not prepared to let this get the better of me. I will treat the disease. I am currently infectious and very sensitive to those around me and my loved one. Wish me luck and keep me in your prayers for my journey ahead.

I was on an experimental drug at the time and was receiving routine blood tests. The research facility notified me that my Bilirubin count had dropped severely and to go and have a hep screen done. The test was negative twice and my GI believed that it was the drug and would the problem would fix itself. I then turned yellow and it was decided that I had auto-immune hepatitis. I have been at stage four cirrhosis and am on a variety of drugs including diuretics, antibiotics, and immune system suppressants. I will eventually require a transplant but for now am not sick enough to make the list. I was a non smoker and very light drinker.

I take Zegerid and watch what I eat during the bad times. But above all, even though it hurts, STAY ACTIVE! If you just sit in a chair/stay in bed, it just prolongs the whole ordeal. During flare-ups, don't lift anything heavy. Don't eat anything spicy, and drink water to flush out the system. It can be miserable at times, but hang tough!
