post hep C tx
Dear Doctor,
I am having very bad pains in my arms, ankles, and shoulders.  Even the heels of my feet hurt.  This only seems to occur after I have been lying or sitting for some time.  I hurt to even stretch my arms out.  Another person who was on Hep C tx was just diagnosed with Polymyalgia Rheumatica.  What do you think?  It just seems that every muscle in my body is hurting me after I have been still for any length of time.  

Thank You

Here is a site for you to look at for the proper answer to your question.  I will keep you posted after I go to the doctor.  All I really know is it hurts all the time and I'm miserable.  Never started until after txs for hcv.
