Post Treatment Night Sweats

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.

No offense, but how old are you?  I get them too, call them hot flashes.

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.

Good luck-

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 don't think you relapsed. Testing Neg at 2 weeks post is a very good sign of SVR.

Like Bill said look at others causes, thyroid, etc

Have you taken your 12 week PCR yet ?  Add a THS to it ......?

We are about the same post TX, any other issues ? I have a headache every morning, achy, tired.

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.

Hi Everyone
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.
