When To Call Your Doctor

for Veterans and the Public

Know when to call your provider - Hepatitis C for Patients

There isn't a need to panic every time you have a headache or feel tired. But if a symptom is concerning you or is not going away; even if it doesn't feel like a big deal, it is always best to have your provider check it out. The earlier you see a provider when you have unusual symptoms, the better off you are likely to be. While you are being treated for hepatitis C, call your provider if you experience the following:

  • Extreme dizziness or shortness of breath
  • Chest discomfort
  • Changes in your vision
  • Swelling in your legs, feet, or ankles
  • Diarrhea for more than 48 hours, or blood in the stool
  • Fever or other sign of infection that lasts more than 48 hours
  • Extreme fatigue
