I will be looking into your question and guiding you through the process. Please write your question below.

What could be the reason of frequent muscle spasm and elevated bilirubin levels?

I am having slight crawling sensation on my left temple at times for the past year. It happens every couple hours and goes away. It’s not painful and when I’m busy I don’t notice it. I’m also having frequent muscle spasms throughout my body about once an hour and they mostly effect my legs and arms and occasionally other muscles. I was worried about temporal arthritis but I’m only 21. I’m going back to my doctor in 2 days. I had an mri done of my abdomen because through blood tests it was found that I have elevated bilirubin (Gilbert’s syndrome). What should I be looking for?

The muscle spasm are not related to bilirubin and it may be due to something else.

As a first line management, you can take analgesics like Acetaminophen or Diclofenac for pain relief.

If symptoms persist, then better to consult an orthopedician and get evaluated.

Good morning....I have been diagnosed with high bilirubin levels, I have a whole body itch, bumps that started out as 1 on the testicle then spread from the testicles to the penis, then the bottom, legs, chest and back. Can these bumps and persistent itching be connected to the high bilirubin level? Thank you

I had a colonoscopy today for a pain that I have had for over 30 years. Nothing was found, however the reason for the colonoscopy was my bilirubin was a 205, not a .2. I am guessing I would need to see a general surgeon next to see if he can tell me what s going on? Lorena
