i cant relate to the chronic stage stuff, but i was also exhausted and found out i had a thyroid problem as well. so i guess the first thing you need is to see a doctor but i heard you say you dont have medical coverage. what about SAG? do you belong? i know my sons insurance is thru them. i dont know what state you live in but i know here in hawaii we have state medical coverage for those of limited income. i think you need to see a doctor if you are feeling this terribly...just a suggestion. but i guess fundage is the issue you must resolve first. good luck and aloha

HCV is considered acute for the first 6 months, since the date of infection. About 35% of people clear it by themselves. If one still has it after this time, it is considered chronic.

Many people do not experience any symptoms. Some people do. I have maybe had it for 25 years, but I just found out in March. I have, besides others, symptoms of fatigue and brain fog. But these only appeared about 3 months ago. So, who, how long and when one is going to have symptoms, is not really predictable.

Do yo know when you got infected?

Best wishes, Marcia
