With Hep C one feels as if a vacuum hose was placed on the bellybutton and ALL THE ENERGY WAS SUCKED OUT OF YOUR BODY. Other symptoms include itchy LEGS,an itch that does not subside, yellow or orange nail beds, over time, fatigue. If one has a physically demanding job,(loading, unloading trucks), and an advanced stage of Hep C, you may get a day or 2 where YOU CANNOT MOVE!! This happened to me twice - akin to "the" most live corpse in the world. The worst aspect is the TOTAL loss of energy. KNOW your stages of Hep C, as Doctors will hve you take unnecessary medications that can cause more harm than good. KNOW YOUR BODY!!
