    I just do normal exercises and then keep myself busy in little chores around home, gardening help to reduce the stress and pain. I hope it help others too…

    I walk 8 miles a day since my Hip and joints can’t handle running. Prior to my 1st treatment I had a hard time walking. On Vosevi now for my 2nd treatment and have 3 weeks 6 days to go.I do not take anything for my pain because my liver has enough going on already. My biggest issue is pain when I get up after sitting or long car rides. Takes me a little while to loosen up.

    It is safe to say that you are hesitant to discuss your hepatitis C? A few people need to take in more about hep C, yet additionally need to keep their finding private. At Anand Medicos, there are approaches to get the best information about Hepatitis C and you can buy medicine easily.

    Hi I just got to my 6 month date , 3 months after completing Epclusa. The first 2 months I felt great. Now for the last month I’m in horrible pain that starts in the evening. I feel so tired . . Sick 😷 . My test results all game back clean even hiv. Also I have MRSA and have had 8 outbreaks since starting treatment including the one now. My Dr doesn’t give me straight answers I’m scared and sad. I almost wish I never took the cure. Felt better before😢 if anyone can help with advice or similar experience that would be great 🙏

      Booboosthor1975, I am so sorry to hear that you are having so much pain. Since you felt so well right after treatment I tend to doubt that it has anything to do with the treatment, although I AM NOT A DOCTOR. I wonder if it could be MRSA related. I had a friend with MRSA and she was in pain constantly until they got it under control. Have you seen an infectious disease doctor? I sure hope you get to feeling better real soon. Please let us know how you are doing. (Sue, Community Moderator)

    I am experiencing a pain in the back of my head at first I thought it was something about my head or connected to my brain because my mom died to have a brain tumor so, i was really worried about it. I know it looks exaggerating but I was afraid for it, then one of my friends just laugh at me and tell me that no need to worry and he give me this CBD oil. He told me that CBD can ease any pain, even other illness but i am not sure if this is can be a https://www.worldwide-marijuana-seeds.com/blogs/marijuana-news/117600453-old-school-strains-acapulco-gold Have you ever tried it for your back pain?

      Hello Nebula. I am so sorry to hear you are experiencing pain. And I am so very sorry for the death of your mom. I think when we lose someone close to us we tend to think the same thing they died of, is going to get us, as well. That usually is not the case.

      I have been considering using CBD oil myself for chronic back pain due to spinal stenosis. What is stopping me is the lack of information (studies) that have looked at the effects it can have on a patient with liver damage from hep C. Some of the people I know who have used it said it helped and some said they had no help at all. I guess it affects each person differently. Please discuss it with your doctor before trying any drug whether it is prescription or over the counter. I hope you feel better soon. (Sue, Community Moderator)

    I tried CBD oil for pain,but I didn’t follow through to see if it works ,because the cost was high for me.
    You need to do it for about a month before you can see if it might help you.
