Welcome to HCM
Your problem of fever, headache on a background of hep c condition, warrants investigation for any brain infective, encephalopathy like condition.
A base line investigation of complete liver function profile, renal function test, blood haemogram and counts, and MRI brain is suggestible.
An urgent consultation to local physician is advisable.
