after hepatits c treatment pain
Sep 8, 2013

How to ask my doctor for pain meds for the pain in my legs . its been 1 year since ive completed treatment plan and pain is still extremely painful. please help me

Response from Dr. Taylor

It is not common to experience leg pain due to hepatitis C virus infection. A rare exception would be cryoglobulin-related vasculitis, an inflammatory illness due to chemicals made by the hepatitis C virus. This typically improves with hepatitis C cure. I would ask your doctor to help evaluate the source of your pain, the reason for you pain, so you can access optimal care. All best to you.
