Physical impact: Many of those who took the survey have expressed that they experience physical symptoms of CHB.

  • 78% said that they feel tired a lot “more than other people they know.”
  • Joint and muscle pain, and body aches also had a significant impact on people’s daily lives.

One participant said “I need more rest. I've had to really curtail a lot of what I do. Especially with my kids’ activities, my husband was great, he used to take them all to all their early morning practices and events and such.”
