Hi everyone, I'm new here. I started on 90mcg of Peg. Interferon a month ago. No side effects. Last week they upped my dosage to 180mcg/weekly. Initially I was fine, but in the middle of the night I woke with excruciating leg pain/bone pain - like constant cramps in both legs. It lasted all night. This has gone on for 3 days now. I have a fairly high pain threshold but this pain has brought me to tears, and worse I don't sleep at night.
I've contacted my hematologist about it, but wanted to get an idea if this might be interferon related, or if this might be something else.
The pain is dull and mild during the day, completely tolerable. But at night - I want to crawl out of my skin.
