First things first, hepatitis C is a disease that attacks the liver. Although there are approximately 2.7 million people in the U.S. living with hepatitis C, the disease itself can be difficult to detect because most people are unaware of the symptoms associated with it. Plus, the disease can take months and even years to show up in one’s bloodstream. In fact, 80 percent of individuals with a less severe form of hepatitis C had no visible symptoms, but some of the warning signs include:

  • Fever
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite
  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Stomach pain
  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Dark urine
