Managing Pain: Overview - Hepatitis C for Patients

Many patients with hepatitis C experience pain. You may be one of them. The specific pain you feel may or may not be directly related to hepatitis C. However, if the pain is affecting your life, it is important to seek help.

There are many types of pain, and different people experience pain in different ways. Pain can be brief, it can come and go, or it can be long-lasting. The cause of pain may be from an obvious source, such as an injury, or the cause of a pain may never be found. Because everyone experiences pain from time to time, it is not always clear whether a pain is related to hepatitis C.
