Harvoni Side Effects Anyone?

I ask this because overall, I don't feel much, but this morning I woke up with a headache, which is very rare for me. I believe one of the side effects can be a headache. I also notice my hands slightly shaking since starting Harvoni. Anyone experience this? Just curious as to what others are going through.

I know this is a new type of treatment, but it would be helpful and put people at ease if others are experiencing the same effects. Otherwise, people could freak out and think something worse is happening to them. Something worse than watching a Justin Beiber video if that's possible...

Just took my 6th pill. Initially, the first 3 pills or so, caused mild indigestion and an hour or two later, headaches. These felt different than ordinary headaches but since I take my pills in the evening, I simply went to bed and they were gone in the morning. On day 3, I took a couple Advil. Day 4 went by without any indigestion or headaches. I thought I was past the period where the body gets used to the drug but on day 5, I got mild angina in the evening for several hours. This caused more anxiety than the pain was worth. Today, day 6, I had another bout of angina in the morning and then again for another couple hours in the evening. I'll call the doc's office about it tomorrow. I'm a pretty healthy guy and have not felt fatigued at all so I continued riding my bicycle to work. Perhaps the effort didn't mix well w Harvoni? Who knows. I'll follow up when I hear back from the doctor's office. Googling around, I didn't see any connection between Harvoni and angina so maybe this is unrelated?

The second week of treatment with Harvoni my vision was so blurry I count read letters and typing as a joke. Dry eye - occasionally. I posted a comment about all my symptoms and the fact that my doctor's nurse seems to believe that no one else has any negative side effects- Worst thing is the fog I'm in from about 2-3 hours after taking the pill. I take it at 6 am as I work early and still have trouble sleeping all night.
