The Lesser Known Symptoms of Hep C

Last updated: July 2018

Hepatitis C can sometimes be a silent disease, doing damage to people’s bodies for years before any symptoms show. According to the 2017 Hepatitis C In America survey, symptoms are common in both those living with hepatitis C and those who have been cured of the virus. Some of these symptoms may also be invisible on the outside, making it hard for others to understand.

Many in the hepatitis C community note that they wish their friends and family knew more about how hepatitis C can affect their day-to-day life – even after being cured. Have you experienced any of these lesser-known, and often invisible, symptoms of hepatitis C?
