your bilirubin is probably all indirect in fraction and consistent with gilbert's disease which affects 10% of the general population and is a benign disorder.

Dear Dr Thomas,

Thank you for your reply. I just login to read your reply.
Thanks for telling me that there is no complication.
I will like to check with you regarding to benign disorder, will gilbert's disease causes Benign ear cyst or tumor
Benign positional vertigo disorder or liver infections in the long term?

Reading at the benign positional vertigo disorder detail, i did experience sudden sensation of movement or spinning easily. I will have spinning in my head when a moving object /human appearing around/ to and fro within my sight or at the side of my eyes. I cannot read in moving car or buses when travelling, i will cough non stop and feel like vomiting.

Especially during my pregnancy period, i have problem with my ear, which i can hear my own breathing sounds, humming sounds. when the sounds get louder, i will have problem breathing, start coughing and nausea, feeling like vomiting and i will faint if i don't lay down.

I have checked with ENT and they cannot find any cause to my problem. I will like to know if gilbert's disease is the cause of the above symptom?

Thank you.

Your sincerely,
felicia lim
