In brief: Hepatitis symptoms
In cases of acute hepatitis you usually have an acute illness with low grade fever, mild abdominal discomfort, fatigue, achiness, and your eyes and skin may turn yellow in the acute phase (jaundice), (and your urine darker. In the chronic phase, about 10%, there are usually no symptoms till many years later, which are then caused by the development of cirrhosis and the loss of liver function.
