I am HCV+ and have never beeen treated. I am reaching
a poinyt where I am getting very sick daily. One of
the main concerns I have is that I am getting pains
all through my legs and up my thighs into my scrotum
even. The pain is like muscles burning and ripping.
Also joint pain. I am on a long vacation in Europe and
have access to a doctor only on cash basis. I was told
by a doctor friend that he thinks my pains are an
autoimmune response and the URQ pains are from the
virus. just to add I eneded up taking Xanax to manage
the anxiety and the pain for the last month (probably
not the best idea) THE QUESTION: What could I tell a
specialst on my one afforded visit so that he might
check my blood(or whatever test applies) for these
pains and a possible autoimmune response rather than
him simply telling me I have HCv. I already know that.
I only get to see one doctor so I want to make the
most of it.
