I began a 12 week treatment of Sovaldi /Ribavirin treatment for HCV 20 days ago. On the 17th day I developed a rash on my lower left leg. by the 18th day, my body was covered over 85% with the itchy red rash. I called the Sovaldi helpline and a nurse called me back. She said that they have not had any case reporting a rash on Sovaldi.
I went to see my prescribing APRN and she saw the rash and had me stop the Ribavirin but continue Sovaldi. The next day, I was unable to get out of bed due to the severe appearance of lymphedema in the same leg where the rash appeared.
I am now waiting for the ambulance to take me to the ER on advice of my APRN.
I am unable to put my feet onto the floor because of the intensity of the pain in both legs. I tried, but I screamed so loudly, I didn't want the neighbors to call the police.
Please reply with any feedback, no matter how insignificant it might seem to you. I am going nuts trying to figure out wtf is happening to me.
