Hi all
I took my 2nd shot on Tuesday and I am very jittery. I find that my body twitches every once in a while. It is an uncomfortable feeling. Anyone else experienced this?
Anything I can do about it?

I've seemed to experience a little bit of everything so far. the tremors I seem to get at night and I take my klonopin and it goes away.  I'm now having eye pain and hand pain....and I'm more tired a full day at work and a lot of stuff going on at home.....but I did go for my appointment and I was told I'm cleared and my liver is normal, but still not cured, I still have 10 more shots.....

I would expect a few more things but I think the fatigue is the worse for me so far.

Eileen, I would think the fatigue would lessen now that you are cleared of the virus.  I guess that must be from the treatment, yes?

Hi Connie,
yes, the pills that I take daily rib-a-pak has made my white blood count go down which is normal but they need to watch it. I just found out that the shot stays in your system for 54 hours for the pegintron and 75 hours for the pegasys
hugs, eileen
