Hepatitis C without treatment is like marriage without the possibility of divorce. It might not kill you, but it could make your life miserable.

Yes HepC can cause joint pain. Side effects from medications such as Cholesterol and Blood Pressure are also culprits. I had major joint pain when I was on them. I quit taking them after I was diagnosed with Hepatitis and most of the pain and fatigue left in a few weeks. If you are on them, talk to your doctor before stopping. My Blood pressure has been normal since I quit drinking and started eating better. I am not sure about the cholesterol yet.

I have been married for three years to a lady withend stage liver disease and hep c.  I guess I've had my head in the sand,  but havew mainly been trying to care for her all this time. We have enjoyed healthy , tho unprotescted sex for three years, and now I have come to find out about hep c being communicable. What should I expect, and do youy think I now am probably going to test positive for this. If so, what should I do?
worried now
