  • I'm 11 weeks into the treatment, reasonably athletic and generally fit, but I have had similar experiences a few times during treatment, always accompanied by dizziness. In my case though I do lay down and it seems to pass. It almost feels like my heart is working harder than usual to get blood to my brain.

  • If you don't mind me asking what was the treatment called that you had for hep c I started the new treatment called zepatier got told there's no side affects the first two weeks of treatment I had a few pains but the fourth to fifth week I have really bad pains in my back,legs and arms I feel dreadful no energy what's so ever and these pains in my legs are awful I'm into the 6th week of 12 week of treatment hope these pains subside soon

  • I'm due to start this tomorrow and I'm terribly anxious as I was told I would feel nothing off of the side effects and I do expect to have bad days but I a think it's more the not knowing

  • I'm on sofosbuvir nd had no side affects from it at all x
