Hep C Symptoms
Jan 28, 2007

My husband was diagnosed with Hep C in Portland Or VA Hosp 1990. 2 major symptoms he had then was a swallen toung, swallen legs and fingers and blotchen on body. He was treated with Interfieron with success. But now still has lot of leg pain, trobing and leg spasims all night long. Is this a known and documented problem that the Hep C caused damage to leg veins or musceles?

Response from Dr. McGovern

I would very much doubt that your husband's symptoms are related to HCV or treatment.
