Avatar f tn Its been 4 months and I am still not well-at all. I have dizzeness, severe headaches and pain, and always feel like im under water or in a fog. Oh ya I stammer a lot and have memory loss and am so very tired and just wiped out. Sometimes I dont see things right. When will this all end? Can someone tell me what kind of meds works best for the pain in the head. I tried Vicodin but got tired of being nausea, Then I was on Butalbital and that was worse-didnt help the pain.

Avatar f tn s before good treatments for HIV increased life expectancy more and more over time.. Hopefully you will end up negative but in the event you have the active HCV because you are young and with the new treatments becoming available now and in the next couple of years the chances are very high you will be able to get rid of the virus.

Avatar f tn What does having cirrhosis mean, I know it means scarring, but I mean in terms of life expectancy and quality of life? Did I miss my opportunity to save my life?

264121 tn?1313033056 "Thanks to the success of HIV meds, HIV patients now have a NORMAL life expectancy.....that's 77.8 years. We can't say the same for Hep C patients. " This is not factually correct. HIV patients have a shorter than average lifespan. Much depends on age, time of infection, start of antiretroviral therapy, and means of acquisiton.This just came out in Lancet: "Life expectancy for HIV positive people is still not normal.
Avatar m tn The majority of people that are HIV+ are on ARV treatment and are less infectious then those that aren't.It's the 3rd world countries where people are less likely to be on ARV treatment.
Avatar f tn [3,4] HCV infection is postulated to result in an 8- to 12-year reduction in overall life expectancy in infected individuals, as well as in reduced health-related quality of life.[5] As the screening, diagnosis, and treatment of HCV infection continues to evolve with the availability of more effective yet more costly treatments, the cost of care will continue to rise.
Avatar n tn if so then it is no problem for me, and als one gets it from earlier stages since childhood so i shouldn't worry about it, MS is not fatal but no offence i read that it can make you very disabled, some of the people end up aided or on a wheelchair, but i hope its not MS, and it is not very common i think..MS has no life expectancy , just the normal life span as the other healthy individuals, Means ms people can be as strong as ahealthy individual, and not know that have ms...
Avatar m tn If I had weighed all that against the chances of my HCV causing liver problems some time before the age of my normal life expectancy. Then the rational choose would have been to do nothing. If asked by someone that was considering going through treatment I would stress that they do a Risk / Reward analysis of their own. And remember that the Doctors and Big Pharma only make $$$ if they choose to undergo the treatment.
