See below: You can get any of these common symptoms but none of them are required for the diagnosis - abdominal pain particularly top center, nausea +/- vomiting, loss of appetite, fatigue or malaise, thirst. If you have any discoloration of the skin on the abdomen or back, go to the hospital immediately - that is a sign of a possible serious complication.
