The most accurate way to know if you have hepatitis A is to get tested. A simple Hepatitis A blood test can detect antibodies to the virus and diagnose an acute infection. Although hepatitis A symptoms are not always present, if you experience more than one of the common symptoms of hepatitis A or have recently been at risk for contracting the virus, seek medical attention.
Hepatitis A symptoms usually appear within days or 2-6 weeks after exposure. Typically, symptoms last less than two months, but in some cases may last as long as six months. Our doctors recommend close monitoring by a specialist, proper rest and fluids.
If present, common hepatitis A symptoms include nausea, vomiting, fever, fatigue, loss of appetite, abdominal pain, dark urine, clay-colored bowel movements, joint pain and jaundice (a yellowing of the skin or eyes).
