It's tricky because hep C doesn't often present symptoms at all.
Lanla Conteh, M.D., clinical associate professor of hepatology and gastroenterology at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center, in Columbus, OH, discusses the symptoms (and lack thereof) of hepatitis C.
One of the problems with hepatitis C virus is that we do not tend to see early symptoms when people get the virus. Unfortunately, when many people get infected with the virus, they oftentimes do not know, because it does not cause any symptoms.
If and when people do get symptoms with hepatitis C, which again, is not common, some of those symptoms tend to be yellowing of the skin or the eyes, something called jaundice. They can also experience nausea, vomiting, pain in the abdomen that tends to be on the right upper side.
Again, these signs of early hepatitis C are not very common, because most people do not have any symptoms when they get the virus.
