Onset of cardiac issues post treatment?
« on: April 13, 2016, 11:41:22 pm »
As many of you know my treatment wasn't bad at all...mostly really good as I got a "Harvoni High"  My post treatment started out terrible and lasted for months and I still am not 100% after over a year or even feeling as good as I did before Harvoni.  I do want to add that I have had many benefits as well, many of them subtle.

I had a physical today and they heard an aortic heart murmur.  This is new for me and I will be having an ultrasound to see what is going on.  Hopefully nothing to be concerned about.

My doctor knows I am on a forum and knows there are those of us with post side effects not addressed by Gilead.  She asked me to check if anyone else is having any cardiac issues and she is going to try and research this as well but she appreciates information from patients for the real life experiences.

I do remember reading about palpitations and she would be interested in any heart related side effects.

My feeling stands, which is anytime we introduce something into our system and especially if we heal rapidly from a chronic illness, changing what our systems become accustomed to, there is a chance for not only positive effects but also negative effects and each person's system can be affected differently.

Thanks for helping and please respond if you have any information to share.
