Hi, I was diagnosed with bronchiectasis recently. My consultant was baffled. I never smoked all my life but I do have Hepatitis C for the last 40 years. I have recently been treated, hopefully successfully, for HepC. I wonder has anyone else been similarly affected with both diseases.
I'm glad I found this site. I've had Hep C for the past 31 years, about 4 years ago I was hospitalize for Vertigo, never knew where it came from. I do have high blood pressure. I have now been treated for Hep C the past 8 weeks.
I'm Newton , from south Brazil, and I've been through clozapine for almost 6 years, and since I quit (fifteen years ago in 2001), I feel sleepy and tired all the time. My health is very poor, I suffer a lot. Thank You!
