Severe Joint pain persists 4 weeks post EOT
« on: May 05, 2015, 11:50:48 pm »
I have constant severe pain in my left wrist that started at 10 weeks. The rheumatologist is not surprised, but offers nothing except NSAIDS and wrist splints so far. I have reported this and noone can comment. We are the experimental group - speak up everyone if you have similar symptoms!!

Hi, if you were taking interferon I would not be surprised. It causes inflammation and my arthritic knee lit up like a Christmas tree.  It went away within about six months after tx.  I have not had the same effect with harvoni and riba, though.  I am sorry for your pain but also, the NSAIDs are not so good if your liver is bad, so be careful, ok?
