Re: yahoo( Headaches)
- Dear Meghan,
Headaches due to Interefron usually get better as treatment advances. So it is likely that your chronic headaches have a different etilogy, possibly atypical migraine. Do see a neurologist.
Regarding your fatigue and bodyaches, your Hep C may be active again. You need to test your ALT and viral load.

Dear Dr. Misra,
I was on pegylated interferon and ribaviron for 11 months. I have been
finished since July 31st. I still have terrible headaches and no energy.
Sometimes I am achy and lightheaded. I was negative after 3 months of
treatment and positive at the end of 6 months post treatment. My doctor told
me to go to an internist, that the headaches should be getting better and
they are worse. Tomorrow I am going for an MRI, and then to a neurologist.
Have you had any experience with patients having headaches for so long? I
started having them every day after about 2 weeks of treatment and every day
since. Before treatment I had a headache about once a week, or every other
week, sometimes, mostly sinus. Thanks, Meghan
