Have you discussed this first step in the morning pain with a doctor?
That symptom makes me think about plantar fasciitis. Have you considered this condition or been evaluated?
Have you discussed your tiredness with your doctor? That can be so many things. We sometimes don’t sleep as well as we age. Is it possible you could have sleep apnea? Also having mild depression can cause symptoms of tiredness.
If you have not discussed these symptoms with your doctor that would be my suggestion. Even if you have but have found no relief I would ask again or see a different doctor for help.
Best of luck to you.
Read the book "ph Miracle".
I went through the interferon right of Iran in 2011 I had horrible side effects to it. It's ruined my life, and the last 6 months I found out about the post interferon and ribavirin syndrome. They knew about the side effects in 2004 they also had a class action suit that was won in 2005 or 2006. I'm grateful that I found out about the long-term side effects and now I've been reading as much as possible to figure out what to do from here.
What I will tell you is during my treatment about 4 to 6 months into it and my lower back started hurting immensely and I was unable to walk 25 feet without having to sit down. My thyroid shrunk to a quarter of the size and they did not realize my thyroid was messed up until I blew up like a balloon. I would definitely have your doctor check your thyroid frequently. Also I became severely anemic and needed a blood transfusion so definitely ask your doctor to test those two things.
I wish I had knew everything I have learned in the last 6 months before I went into the treatment. Get as much knowledge as you can about these drugs and ask questions about any signs of change that you may have or notice. If someone else is saying that something has changed and you asked about that with your doctor.
I kept a diary and I'm glad I did, when I compare my diary to charts of symptoms they match.
