Arthritis, or side effect of Hep C study medication?

A year ago I finished a study for Hep C with TMC435, slowly but gradually I have been developing joint pain, with wrists, hands, and fingers hurting the most.  My knees are now beginning to hurt too, like a stabbing pain, and sometimes the hip pain can get unbearable. I have been thinking there might be a connection between the medication used in the study and the joint pain, since I met another person through MedHelp who was also participating in the study the same time I was, and she too is experiencing the exact same symptoms as I am. So far, every doctor I've seen can't seem to help, one doctor says one thing, the other says no it's something else. I have an appointment to see a rheumatologist, but I just want to know if someone out there might know something about this. The pain is affecting my sleep since it wakes me up many times during the night, and I can't even stay in bed because of the pain. Is this arthritis, or is this the side effects of post treatment?
