So remember for the most part, hepatitis C does not cause symptoms until there is significant liver damage. However, sometimes when a person is acutely infected, he or she may display some signs and symptoms as the immune system kicks into high gear to try to fight it off. For instance, one might develop nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, yellowing with the eyeballs and skin, pale stool and dark urine. One interesting thing, we find that people who develop symptoms actually have higher likelihood of getting rid of the virus. We think this is because having the symptoms is a sign that you immune system is mounting a very strong response to fight off the virus, therefore giving you a higher chance of getting it.
