thank you for the info
now a question. i have been having back pain that reaches around the rib cage under my breasts for the last couple months. there have been times when i could not lie on the affected side it was so uncomfortable. this morning was one such time. does this have anything to do with hep c? i have had this since 1999 and am not on any treatment because i'm black, and( i hope) it has nothing at all to do with racism. somebody please tell me something and ease my mind.

TSP aims to improve the well-being of people affected by viral hepatitis. Trained peer counselors will provide emotional support, health information, and relevant referrals, working with callers to set health-related goals related to all stages of living with hepatitis C -- from risk assessment and HCV testing through considering treatment and improving quality of life. Counselors will follow-up with callers to help them follow through with their decisions. 

The new national helpline can be reached toll-free at 877-HELP-4-HEP (877-435-7443), via email at info@help4hep.org, or on the web at www.help4hep.org. The phone helpline is staffed Monday through Friday, 9 am to 7 pm EST (6 am to 4 pm PST).
