New, Hello. I am a member of the hep c club great fun. Want to know if any of you can I D with this. 12 years old was told it was thought I had hep, but could not be verified. Now 50, have treated 10 months Interferon and ribavarin. Two months after treatment virus was back. Getting set up for new treatment with the two drugs used before plus something new. Also was treated for 3 years for RA, misdiagnosed. Hep c will cause many different types of problems. Doctors who try to tell you your crazy, or dont understand, are not worth sticking with. If they do not communicate well with you or if you have doubts about them fire them and move on. I know for a fact that valuable years can be wasted by Docs that are not truely interested in helping you.View Thread
