After 16 w of HCV treatment, stopped due to huge constant pain in heart. I had EKG and it showed normal sinus rhythm, septal infarct age undetermined.?

Work up: I am assuming you were treated with PEG INF and ribavarin combo. At age 26 having a septal infacrt is very rare. Suspect the EKG needs to be repeated and if shows the same changes then seeing a heart doc would be an option. Heart disease in your age and gender is almost unheard of. Best of luck. ...Read more
