What is known?

Yep. I worked all the critical care departments, also OR and GI Lab. Lost my career, self identity, health, and my mind. I am not nuts but the depression and anxiety has reduced my coping mechanisms for sure. I hate self pity, but who else is gonna care, right? Nobody wants to hear it. Glad I found a place to vent.

I can't agree more. The treatment ended my nursing career too and was struck off the register for fatigue !

I just found this site. I took interferon injections for 6 months, relapsed hep c, then one year of injections 3 mil units, 3 times a week. That was 1994-1996. Horrible suffering, for what? For years they denied long term effects. I could never return to nursing or any substantial work, I blamed myself and wihdrew from life. I knew it was the treatment, but who would listen. I suffer from most of the symptoms that I see others are suffering from. Neurologic peripheral and central, cardiac, muscle weakness, fatigue, sleep disorders, pain, psychiatric, vision. Not wanting to be the complainer, I withdraw. I want answers now. Thanks everyone for sharing. Things make sense now.
Like you and so so many more of us post treatment. I went back to my GP several times each year since 2006 and never got anywhere. I had a brain tumour removed in 2000 and after therapy etc regained my driving licence and back to work for a few years before the treatment. So obviously over the years I pinned all my symptoms etc onto that operation pre treatment. It's only since I found this site that everything makes sense. We must all be strong and hope an investigation will begin like the infected Blood one starting April 2019

Welcome to this site. It's great to be able to share our stories and bring some comfort to each other knowing that we are not insane and this post treatment syndrome really is happening x

Hello, I often sit n think how one person could feel this darn bad all of the time. the pain in my bones is overwhelming, fatigue that gives me no choice but to lie down several times a day, muscle spasms contort my body, my memory is really really bad…i don't see me being able to function at all in the next few yrs and there is no way out. my daughter is also a RN n i don't even think that she takes me seriously…no one does but uall on this site. i just started my my 37th antibiotic in just two yrs thanks to CVID with predominant B cell damage thanks to interferon/ribaviron. i am gonna start on CBD oil soon due to all of the great work that it has proven on the human body…this is scientific proof. has anyone ever hear of LDN therapy??? I have heard great things about this but doesn't seem to be available anywhere near me. God bless all of u going this hell.

https://aidsinfo.nih.gov/drugs/34/interferon-alfa-2/0/professional oh my goodness pls read the pharmacology portion actually all of this is blowing my mind…notice ribaviron is described as: mutagenic, toxogenic, and carcinogenic …who allowed these drugs to be approved

Wow that's a lot of info about interferon and I notice its mostly from 2007. As I ha e access to part of my medical notes there was a comment made by a Doctor that my symptoms may be related to post Interferon treatment. I am still searching for an up to date review on this terrible drug
