Often there are no symptoms of hepatitis C. For those who do develop symptoms, the symptoms can be non-specific (meaning they can be attributable to a number of other factors) and may take up to six months from the time of infection to occur. The most common early, or acute, symptoms include feelings of fatigue, nausea, fever and general muscular aches and pains. Long-term or chronic symptoms may include mood swings, anxiety and depression, abdominal pain, dry/itchy skin, dry eyes, “brain fog” and generally feeling unwell.
