What were your signs and symptoms associated with viral hepatitis?

Comment from: marydifr, 65-74 Female (Patient) Published: February 03

I seem to have flare-ups of viral hepatitis every 1 to 2 years that include, vomiting, low grade fever, fatigue, weakness, constipation and light colored stools. Usually I am hospitalized 4 to 5 days, have to have potassium infusion before discharge due to low levels.
