  he drooping face sounds like you may have suffered a stroke.  If your breathing problems were due to low hemoglobin (hemolytic anemia), it can cause problems with the heart.

I read your post on the GS 7977 thread related to TIAs (transient ischemic attack or mini-stroke. Up until yesterday I never heard of the term but I heard a story on the news about a former child actor who is now a musician had one. You are young and he is ten years younger than you.

"..TIA  begins like a regular stroke, but then any noticeable symptoms or deficits disappear within an hour." Here is the link in case you are curious

There may be others who have insight. In the mean time I did come across an article related to HCV-Related Nervous System Disorders and  transient ischemic attacks is listed in section 2. Neurological Manifestations.

I am not sure if your physician is aware of what happened or your past medical history and I encourage you to contact your doctor immediately. If this is a recent development it could be connected to your HCV. Either way this definitely sounds like something that requires medical oversight. I am not aware of the short or long-term implications of what happened to you. I personally have not heard of this symptom before however there are others with more experience than I have.

Please contact your doctor ASAP!

Hi I am so sorry to hear about your problems
I had what I thought was a stroke while on Incivek.  I was so afraid.  My husband took my blood pressure and said it was normal.  My doctor was no help, I could not talk for 2 days, could not read (I am a bookworm) write, think for close to 3 weeks.
I finally called the Specialty Pharmacy and we went over all of the medications I was on.  I was told that one of my meds was being completely blocked by the Incivek, another was tripled and another was 4 times it normal limit.  I had not changed a dose Incivek did it for me.
Until I found that out I thought I was losing my mind.
I would suggest that you double check your medications with the Specialty Pharmacy.  I had given them a list when I first started however research is on going so new side effects/interactions were discovered after I started the tx.  It was awful.  I hope you can get some answers
Good luck

Many of us currently treating receive our Hepatitis C Medication from a "specialty pharmacy" since the average local pharmacy tends to not routinely stock the higher-cost injectable, infused and select oral medications for chronic conditions that have special storage requirements. For example the injectable Interferon (Pegasys) requires refrigeration.
