I recently went to the doctor to get a, what I thought was routine, check up. All my labs except one came back perfect. The nurse said one came back that Hep C had definately been introduced to my body, but that's all that she could tell me. And that I may have a 10% to15% chance that my body fought it off, and I should come in to get more testing. I usually fight with a low iron count around 3 to 5, and have had a couple of transfusions, because of child birth and a past surgery (i'm guessing b/c that's the only times I've struggled with it) but my iron count was a 13. I've heard that Hepatitis will push your iron count up. I've cut a lot of **** out of my diet, and I feel really good, except that under my eyes are dark. Really dark. I look like i've got a broke nose. they've gradually gotten darker. Is this a sign of Hep C? I have no other obvious signs or other bruising. My abdomen, under my right breast, is tender sometimes. Not everyday though. I'm going to go to the doc again soon, but I've been trying to recover from Alcohol, and some IV drug use (almost 7 months) and I moved too far away from my old doc. I didn't want news that might upset my sanity or progress right now. I've got my life back on track again, and I'm ready now. So advice anyone? I really don't understand the dark circles. I sleep fine after I'm out.
