RE: Does HEP C cause headaches / migraines?


Thanks for the input everyone, and support. Yeah, I will continue to push for answers.

regarding the water intake too ... if I drink too much water .. it goes right to my feet, literally ... they'll balloon up. Which throws the doctor for a loop, cause this is supposed to happen in the later stages of liver disease, and not stage 1-2 liver fibrosis. Now, its become ... well maybe I am diabetic. Seems like a possible answer for everything ... but nope .. not a diabetic condition either.

 

Need Dr. House biggrin

Hey,

I dont have any insight on this but I've had crazy bad headaches and migraines since I got Hep C... Which is also around my mid teens so It could just be my body changing. I'm interested in following this though. and best of luck.

hi Mike, I have a similar problem...I get the heartburn, THEN the headache, then the diarrhea,... but I sorta think mine is an allergy that is food related, which is also the lack of ability to digest things properly, most likely because of the "C".

 I also am finding it very hard to tolerate inhaled toxins of any kind, they will lead to a headache and stomach ache, and diarrhea. I take allot of Tums and aspirin. Aspirin will also lead to heartburn, but at least my headache is gonesmile I tried Ibuprofen, but that REALLY made my side (liver area) ache, and it gave me a stomach ache.

Well,... so to NOT really answer your question, uh...always drink copious water and check with your dr.   Blessings, Iris

I typed in "diarrhea after headache" into google and this came up:

Of course, I'm no doctor so you should go see one.

I never really got many headaches in my days until the last year when I began experiencing them as well as cronic diarrhea. Thought I had picked up a bug on a camping trip last summer but nope. That's what got me back to hep doctor, to new biopsy, and now to treatment. I don't get migraines and I don't know anymore what is an effect of what. Just glad to have this forum!

Hello, I am trying to find some study or doctor's conclusion that HEP C causes headaches. Either directly or in-directly, as for example as a result of the HCV causing "  ", to domino effect.

 

Reason I am asking, is cause I have been getting terrible headaches, like if not all headaches are bad, but these seems to just last forever, unless I take a pain reliever. But sometimes I can have one for several consecutive days on in. And cannot seem to find the cause, or explanation.

 

I posted a few days ago, thinking ... low body temp, high blood pressure, might lead to headaches / migraines. Also, this may sound strange, but diarrhea usually follows once the headache sets in, after a few hours.

Not taking any meds, not on treatment & no drugs or alcohol.
