    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Hepatitis

    For the past year or so I have been suffering from terrible fatigue, flu like symptoms, and weakness, to the point where my GP told me it was probably Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and referred me to a specialist. However, in each of the around 8 blood tests I have had in the past year have turned up with very poor liver function. my GP kept sending me for tests saying he was monitoring this, though my liver function was he believed a statistical anomaly. Now after six months off work with "Chronic Fatigue" I have eventually seen a specialist, and was surprised by his concern about my liver. In fact he said my liver function was "three times the norm" (I dont know what this means!) and that he was so concerned about my liver that I am now facing an ultrasound, and biposy. He also asked me a lot of questions re; exposure to one of the hepatitis virus's.

    Has anyone else here come to Hepatitis from an orignial mis-dignosis of Chronic Fatigue? Does an abnormal "liver function" indicate this virus - or is the blood test more specific?

    The strange thing is I now know so much about the horrors of a long-term diagnosis of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome that a different diagnosis may actually be more preferential with a more specific prognosis and treatment. Though, looking at the causes online there is also almost no way in which I can concieve I may have been exposed to such a virus.

    Thanks for your thoughts.

    Bring someone you know and trust with you to the doctors. Write down questions on paper before you go- Write down the doc's answers and if you do not understand-ASK until you do. If the doc does not satisfy you-get another doctor!!!

    Yes, Chronic fatigue is part of hepatitis, and the liver counts being off are very indicative of hepatitis.

    Chronic fatigue can be an effect of hepatitis, as well as many other health conditions.

    Elevated liver enzymes can be a result of other conditions, as well as exposure to toxic chemicals.
