Abdominal Pain from Peg/Co-Peg/Neupogen?

I've been experiencing intermittant abdominal pain for about two weeks, and I doubt it has anything to do with liver damage. Annual ultrasounds since 1998 have shown only minor liver damage despite AST/ALT levels that have averaged from 194/325 since January of '97. Since Peg/Co-peg treatment started six weeks ago, my LFTs have been normal. Wish I could say the same for my RBC and platelets (Neupogen stablized my WBC).

Aside from the fatigue, headaches and occasional fevers, the thing that concerns me most is this occasional abdominal pain. It seems to be worst when I eat chocolate, but sometimes even when I eat healthy it zaps me. (Sometimes it happens on an empty stomach, too.) It's not a severe, double-me-over kind of pain, but it's still not pleasant. Anyone experience this as a result of Peg/CoPeg/Neupogen?

Thanks!

Christine

P.S. I'm also on Fortovase/Norvir/Epivir, but that's been the case since 1996, and they never caused this pain.
