Pennie, welcome to the forum. We are not doctors or diagnosticians. Since you have repeatedly tested negative for hep A, B, C, it is unlikely that you have those types of hepatitis. There is also hep D, E, F, G. I don't know what the specific tests are for those, or even the symptoms, but I know they exist. You might want to ask your doctor about those.
Since I have chronic, active hep C, I can tell you that there are rarely the symptoms you describe with this type of hepatitis. The main symptoms are fatigue and elevated liver enzymes that remain elevated over 6 mos. or more.

Welcome to healingwell!
I am only a caregiver not a patient, seems to me that if Dr's. have ruled out Hep/HIV you are a lucky person as this is not the diseases of choice to contract. Normal ALT and AST usually range from 0-55 and 0-40 according to what yours is 11-26 you are still within normal range and even with a flu bug or viral infections your counts can rise. I hope you have had your Vaccine shots if not go to your local Health Dept. they will retest you and start you on a series of shots for free! My son Wil's ALT usually range about 248 sometimes higher, He has Chronic Hep B cirrhosis (2002) is when we found out. He contracted thru chemo or bloodtransfusions in 1987-1988 he had AML leukemia He is now 22 yrs.old. Get a second opinion even third if your not satisfied. Good luck and know that we are here for you! Please let us know how you are doing and what you find out!
