This is a forum for Hepatitis C. I think you should post somewhere else on the MedHelp website. You'd have a better chance getting answers.

Cryoglobulinemia is one of the most common extrahepatic manifestations of HCV.  About 40% of people with hepatitis C have blood markers for this condition.  However, only a small fraction (10%) of the people with hepatitis C who have these markers are symptomatic.  In addition, severe consequences of hepatitis C related cryoglobulinemia usually require a long period of infection with hepatitis C virus before the severe damage occurs.  Treatment of symptomatic HCV-related cryoglobulinemia usually consists of treating the cause...HCV.  

Have you been tested for Hepatitis C?
