Around the 6th of March I began to feel unwell with some stomach pain. In the following days I lost my appetite completely and noticed my urine was darker. This went on for about a week, in which I began to feel itchy, followed by yellowing of the eyes, skin and pale faeces. This prompted me to go to the local clinic and be tested for Hepatitis B.
I had the results through today HBsAg positive.
Total bilirubin 9.1
Direct bilirubin 8.5
The situation is I live in a foreign land and there is a bit of a language barrier. The doctor has prescribed me some vitamins and asked me to come back next month to be retested.
Is this normal procedure? The doctor seems to think it is acute Hepatits because of the sudden onset.
I have a million questions and its hard to find the answer, theres a lot of conflicting information online.
Esssentially apart from the jaundice, dark urine, pale faeces and some tiredness. I have not felt any pain in my right side, I have occasionally felt a twinge there but no real discomfort.
I'm basically curious if anyone else has been through this here?
Thanks for reading and I wish you all the best of luck.
