Anyone any ideas why night sweats after treatment?
I finished treatment mid January, I started having night sweats 2 weeks ago. ( my 2 week post blood test showed negative for hep c ) Is this a sign that the hep c is back I don't know why after a few weeks I would be experancing this.
Interferon can sometimes cause or aggravate issues with the thyroid gland; I think hot flashes can be associated with hyperthyroidism. Ask your doctor if you received a baseline thyroid panel, and if another one is indicated now.
I completed my trial @ week 12 and was UDT from weeks 1-12, shortly after stopping Tx I began having night sweats and somehow knew in my heart of hearts what had happened- My next blood draw revealed I had in fact relapsed so it is a possibility....
I also experienced night sweats not long after ending tx. Like you, I was UND at the time. I was 47 years old and as aggravating as it sounded to me, everyone attributed it to "peri-menapause."
Chart when it happens. I'm still in "peri-menapause" almost 2 years later and I still hate that term. Every now and then I'll experience night sweats...usually about mid point---even with the A/C on 68. But I'm still SVR.
I too am experiencing night sweats along with insomnia. Bill spoke to thyroid disorders and I did inherit a thyroid problem from treatment. To ease your mind, I have not relapsed as of 12 weeks post treatment.
@James I wake every morning with a headache and achy as well. I thought it was just me or the thyroid medication. I am still experiencing fatigue and shortness of breath which are a sx of the thyroid medication too! However, my HGB has not recovered to pretreatment numbers so who knows.
Thank you so much for all the comments and info.
AjaLee no offence taken I don't mind telling my age, I have been there already I am 57.
James1050 in the mornings I get up very achy my back, feet and hands, it takes me a bit to get going. The fatigue is still with me somewhat but my breathing is much better.
Gee 704 so glad you have not relapsed.
Bill1954 I have an appointment with my family doctor on May 17 and will ask for a thyroid test.
My gastro tells me my next blood work to test for hep will be at 6 months I did not get tested at 12 weeks just 2 weeks post.
Again thank you everyone for the comments and info.
