Hi everyone, I'm 30 years old I'm from a beautiful small country where we have a big problem with HCV. We are two million people but is sad that statistics show 20% of population here have HCV and I'm one of them. I have chronic HCV genotype 3 more then 13 years, last year had a biopsy and results were Cellular Fibrosis in early stage. Doctors put me on waiting list and I was waiting for one year tomorrow for the first meeting with my doctor. Now I have to take another test and if all is ok I will start with therapy with Interferon with ribivarin. I'm a little scared but with your support I'm sure gonna help me a lot thank you.
Now for my symptoms: For 10 years I did not have any symptoms but for the last three years I have been living in hell because of my illness so I decided to go in hospital. I see and realize that this virus is dangerous and if I not have the symptoms I'm sure that I would not ask for help? First start with alopecia, I lost a lot of my hair but am lucky for my hair again grew. Then my arms become swollen but this symptom was gone after a month. Then I started to itch, my skin on my legs and is like this is every day. For the whole year I felt like something eat me inside in my body. I fell pain in right side of abdomen energy is zero and nothing helps me.
For last two mounts I take silimarin, aronija, blueberry and other tea but symptoms is here they are not gone? Another symptom: my lymph nodes on my neck are swollen and I have white tongue and small bums on soft pilate in my mouth. I have red spots on my arms like spider webs on my skin when I ask for help in hospital my doctor did some tests: the test of HIV, hepatitis B, syphilis, and immune test yet all was OK?
I don't have any virus only hepatitis C and doctors told me the most symptoms is not case by HCVhcv but is something else causing them? This answer confuses me and now I'm scared to start with standard therapy. Please tell me if somebody have similar symptoms like mine. That is my story and I wish all the best to all people I wish to we be healthy and happy. We are happy because have cure for hepatitis C and the new therapy is the best from God thank you.
