It was Nothing you could put your finger on I just didn't feel right.

Constant fatigue, low mood and irritability, or that niggling feeling that something just isn't quite right could all be symptoms of undiagnosed hepatitis C. Perhaps you've discussed feeling unwell with your doctor and been advised to get more sleep, exercise and improve your diet but regardless or what you've tried the nagging symtoms persist. There's only one way to be completely sure, make an appointment and ask for a free hepatitis C test.

The only side effect was that I got an enormous amount of energy back, and I was like, where did that come from!

Previous hepatitis C treatment medicines like interferon caused severe and often intolerable side effects. This coupled with the low probability of a successful outcome led some to avoid seeking treatment altogether, preferring instead to take their chances with the virus. For those who suffered through a year of treatment only to have the virus return, many vowed never to put themselves through that again. If you've been avoiding treatment because you've heard the horror stories or suffered through months and months of side effects only to have the virus return, the news has never been better. The new generation medicines now available, come with none of nasty side effects of old and cure close to one hundred percent of all consumers, regardless of their genotype.
