Having Hepatitis C does make the diagnosis and treatment of RA more challenging. Here's a post written by Dr. Borigini which discusses some of the complications. If you do indeed have RA, know that hepatitis C did not cause your RA. So getting rid of it will not cure your RA. It is understood that untreated RA will get worse over time. RA attacks not just joints but can also affect internal organs.
Please work with your rheumatologist to find a plan which is appropriate for you. I'm sorry that you are facing both hepatitis and RA. That is complicated. Only a medical professional who knows your case personally can really answer your question.
Thank you for your question. Consider writing a Sharepost about having both diseases. Perhaps someone else who has both will see it and respond.
