does HCV cause arthritis?

I have been cured since 2006. Now I am developing joint pain and arthritis. Anybody else have these symptoms? I would love to har from you.

  1. Hi . Thank you for your question. Hepatitis C can lead to long-term join pain and arthritis-like symptoms. Many of our community members have shared similar experiences. Some patients feel relief after finishing hep C treatment, but others have longer-lasting symptoms. Here are some articles on this topic, that might be of interest to you. We hope this helps! Please let us know if you have any other questions. Wishing you all the best!
