tired most of the time
Has anyone found anything that helps with the fatique? I do well for a few hours and then need a nap. Sometimes I take 2 to 3 naps a day.
I also wanted to know if your blood tests determine how your Doctor says your doing? My numbers go very high and come down and go up. I really don't know how they determine if you have liver damage. I have had MRI and they have shown nothing suspicious. I sometimes wonder if my Doctor knows much about HCV. Any thoughts?

Hi,
I have had HepC for 35 years. Was doing well until I hit my 50s, then started having fatigue and joint pain. I found out I had HepC a few months ago, so I started eating organic foods and reducing my salt and sugar intake. I also drink as much water as I can. Still tired, but feeling better. Regular exercise helps, too. I do water aerobics 2 times a week and walk 30 mins 5 times a week.
I read that only a liver biopsy can determine the extent of liver damage (scarring, cirrhosis, etc.) with certainty, but there are other less invasive tests that help a doctor decide whether a biopsy is needed or not.
I've had blood tests to check my liver enzymes (always within reference range so far) and an abdominal ultrasound. My gastroenterologist doesn't think I need a biopsy at this time. I plan to start treatment with pegInterferon/ribavirin this summer.
Try less salt, sugar, and caffeine, and more exercise and see if it helps. Good luck to you!
Sue
