Hepatitis B Symptoms

Hepatitis B is a dangerous illness that can damage your liver and it can lead to liver failure or cirrhosis where your liver is permanently scarred. You may not even show any Hepatitis B symptoms and still experience the debilitating effects of this dangerous disease. That's why it is so important to observe closely the symptoms and seek medical advice if you think you've been exposed to Hepatitis B.

Hepatitis B has an incubation period of approximately 12 weeks. During this time, you won't exhibit any symptoms but you can be infectious. Hepatitis is transmitted through blood and intimate body fluids of an infected person. Hepatitis B symptoms do not occur in all sufferers, but you should still take a look at them and note if you experience any of these symptoms.

One of the most common Hepatitis B symptoms is jaundice. Jaundice is the yellowing of your skin and the yellowing of the white area in your eyes. You may also notice a darkening of your urine. You may also experience a loss of appetite accompanied by nausea and vomiting. You may also experience a general feeling of lethargy. This general feeling of lethargy is marked by extreme weakness and fatigue. It's as if your body is tired and this tiredness may be found with joint pain.

If you are experiencing any of these Hepatitis B symptoms then you need to seek medical treatment. Furthermore, not everyone experiences symptoms when suffering from Hepatitis B so if you engage in risky behavior or think you may have been exposed to Hepatitis, you should seek medical care. Most adults infected are able to recover fully from even severe symptoms of Hepatitis B.
