Cholangitis (bile duct infection) from a gallstone that got stuck along the way is a serious, acute problem. Rx involves antibiotics and removal of the stone (often with a special endoscopy procedure-ercp), and/or surgery.
Sclerosing cholangitis is a different thing altogether. Chronic, autoimmune, inflammatory bile duct condition, often assoc with inflam bowel. Difficult issue. See GI specialist.

In brief: See specialist--GI
This is not a very common illness, so many docs are not comfortable managing it.
Often, a gastroenterologist can help you with this illness. Good luck.
