Feels like a jack hammer

Tremendous Group of Supporters:

Undected geno 2 at end of 24 weeks.  Started feeling better about three weeks later...continued on an upswing
until a few days ago or about 10 weeks after ending treatment. Suddenly my neck and shoulders are killing me.
Moments of feeling like I am back on the treatment...is this common and does it mean anything.

If I understand you correctly, you finished treatment over 10 weeks ago, and are now experiencing pain? I’d look for something other than treatment to cause this; you might want to call your doctor’s office in the morning and schedule an appointment. Sudden *severe* onset, you might consider a trip to ER.

Good luck—

Several weeks after tx I came down with severe pain in my legs and sometimes in my back. I have a friend that came down with Gout about 6.5 months after tx. This does not mean what you are going through is tx related. I agree, do go see a Dr.

Recovery can be a Roller Coaster Ride just like tx is. I think we get used to having the good days and when the bad ones come, we panic. My Dr. said it could take up to 6 months to recover and that is about what it took for me (still not 100%). Some people recover faster than others. Don’t get discouraged when the bad days come. The will be fewer and farther between. I look at it like this, I will take a bad day of recovery over a good day of tx anytime.Hope this helped in some way, R. Glass
