Hep c symptoms

  • Fatigue is the most common symptom reported by people with hepatitis C.  It can range from mild to moderate to severe.  Again, some people may not even realize how fatigued they are if the fatigue falls somewhere within the mild to moderate range.  A good way of measuring it is to talk with friends who are healthy to find out what their fatigue level is. Another good way is to talk to others with hepatitis C and try to gauge how your fatigue measures up with their fatigue.  Finally, try to figure out how fatigue affects your daily life.  How does the fatigue affect your work, recreation and interaction with family and friends.
