: I m hoping by posting this message here, I may
be able to get some help with this matter. I have
an aunt how is 80 years old. She contracted
Hepatitis C many years during a surgery
procedure. She has lived with this decease for
many years and now because of her age, has been
advised " to live with it ". For the past 5 years
she has had all the simptoms of Peripheral
Neuropathy. No medication she has taken has been
of much relieve and she is in fairly consitent
pain. Recently she has been told that her PH is
the result of her Hepatitis C condition, and
again, nothing can be done to help her.
: Is anyone aware of PN conditions resulting from
liver decease? Can anyone suggest potential
treatments for pain management or improvement? I
find it hard to beleive that she has to endure so
much pain and there is nothing that can be done
for her. Is there any research being done on
this? She lives in So. Californial. We would be
forever grateful to anyone with any help at all.
Thank you. Please Email me at [email protected]

I have seen the Hepatitis in connection with PN. Probably was on the sites for Peripheral Neuropathy. But, yes it has been commented on by a few people. I take Elavil (amytriptaline) and Neurontin which helps me.
