I have had osteo arthritis in my knees for two years - moderate to severe. Hep C for over 20 years, 55 years old. Are there links between Hep C and this type of arthritis that someone can tell me about?
Both are normal for hep c. Depending how bloated you are getting you may have acites (fluid retention in the belly) since you have stage four scaring. Many with hep c just get bloated. Nausea is common and verys how often per individual.
Hep c doesn't cause artheritis but it can make it worse.
