Unknown and Rare Symptoms to Identify Hepatitis B Virus

Hepatitis B is the most probable life-threatening liver infection that is caused by the hepatitis B virus. This is a major universal health problem. This can cause chronic infection and put people at high risk of death from liver cancer and cirrhosis.

Hepatitis B is a virus that affects the liver. Most people have it for a short time and then get better. It is called acute hepatitis B.

Sometimes this virus causes a long-term infection, named chronic hepatitis B. Over time this could damage your liver. Infants and young kids infected with the virus are more prone to get chronic hepatitis B.

Most of the people with hepatitis B do not know that they have it, because they do not have any indications. If you do have symptoms, you may only experience it like you have the flue.

Symptoms consist of:

Headache
Mild fever
Not wanting to eat
Belly pain
Feeling very tired
Dark urine
Feeling unwell to your stomach or vomiting
Tan-colored bowel movements (stools)
Yellowish skin and eyes (jaundice). Jaundice generally seems only after other symptoms have begun to go away.

Hepatitis B has no particular indication or symptoms.

A simple blood test can show your doctor if you have the problem of hepatitis B virus now or if you had it in the past. Your doctor will also advice you to have the vaccine to avoid the virus.

If your doctor feels you may have liver damage from hepatitis B, he or she may apply a needle to get a small sample of your liver for testing. It’s called a liver biopsy.
