Hepatitis C is a disease caused by the Hepatitis C virus that is spread through exposure to infected blood, sharing of used needles/syringes/paraphernalia, sex, and so on. Anyone who is infected with it is advised to get a proper diagnosis by undergoing Hepatitis C testing to receive the appropriate treatment right away.
Hepatitis C patients who receive treatment may experience different things during and after treatment. Some may feel better after some time and not go through side effects, while others may experience some mild to serious reactions.
Here are some examples of side effects that Hepatitis C treatment may trigger:
