I am new to this group and was wondering if anyone else has run into similar problems. in June 2008 I started having joint pain and swelling all over. The knuckles on my hands are enlarged and now by my left pinkey toe. The pain is incredable. A few days ago I started to have the RUQ pain that won't quit. I keep getting told it is all in my head and Hep C doent cause pain. My blood work was normal except for a Vit D deficiency and a very low out of range c-reactive protein. My alt and ast have always been at 22 and now the first change I have seen is the my alt=24 and my ast=28 but all is normal. has anyone else had this type of pain. I have not had a bx or tx because my blood work has been normal. I have a viral load of 15,300,000 and type 1a. I am supposed to see a liver specialist for the first time since I was dx in 1993. I have had this since 1984 from a blood transfusion after a motorcycle accident. I am taking Meloxicam 15mg for the inflammation and Vicoden for the pain. I can't keep living this way. Any help or advise would help.
