after treatment
« on: February 03, 2016, 01:43:17 pm »
Hi all  i am new to this. I have just finished 12 weeks of holkira pak and riba.  No real side effects.. just gas..half way thru the virus was undetectable..yeahhh! On my 12th week i got diarrhea and weak.  It went away.  My 12 wk blood test showed everything good and virus undetectable. About 2 weeks after i finished pills i have started getting weakness below elbows to hands..my fingers cramped up and now feel like they are trying to move lock up as well as one of my feet.  Has anyone experienced this or have any ideas? I'm finding this very scary!

I went through a period where I had intense pain in my finger bones... not my joints, it felt like a shin splint pain in my fingers.  Only lasted a few days, thank goodness.

I now have times when I wake up a night and my hand is numb... I think when I sleep on it.

Finger pain and joint pain are now gone.... but joint pain lasted quite a long time.

hang in there.... things can change very quickly...even over night.  At least in my case.
