Treating hepatitis C-related pain - Hepatitis C for Patients

If you have hepatitis C and persistent (chronic) pain, it may or may not be possible to make the pain go away completely. You can work with your doctor to use medications or find other ways to relieve your pain. The keys to reducing pain are:

  • Improving physical functioning
  • Reducing stress and depression
  • Improving quality of life

What follows are some useful techniques for reducing pain. Any one of these approaches used alone may improve your pain somewhat. However, when multiple techniques are used together, they can make a big difference.
