Can this be hepatitis?
The websites I’ve read link pale stools with hepatitis. I am concerned. Five days ago I developed a headache which persisted for about 40 hours. Tylenol did not work. A few hours after the headache I had a few bouts of yellowish/pale diarrhea. That cleared up quickly with imodium and has not returned. The day after the headache started I felt weak, tired and had little appetite. I rested, drank liquids and felt much better the following morning. At no time did I have a temperature. Since then my appetite has been normal and there are no symptoms that I can see other that pale/yellowish stools – longer and thinner than normal. I thought hepatitis was a lingering illness that produced exhaustion over a prolonged period of time however I was really tired just one day. What could be going on?
