Comment from: RavenCrow, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: May 15

I've had hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection for 43 years, and it's never bothered me until now. I've lost almost 30 lb. which I can't afford to lose. All of my joints hurt continuously. My hair is falling out. My right side hurts. I have mouth thrush that's not healing even though I've taken the strongest medicines for it. I wake up totally exhausted after 8 hours of sleep. I've had every blood and urine test, CAT scans, and everything comes up negative except the hepatitis C. I never wanted to take the medicines, afraid of the side effects. I think it's time to start finding out if insurance will cover me.
