Hi, everyone! I am diagnosed with chronic hepatitis B 10 years ago. I was just so conscious of what I am feeling right now. I am getting a numb sensation in my right and left lower rib portion every time I am eating something. Is this a sign of liver inflammation? Or just an effect of gaining weight & belly fat? Nothing more than that I observed right now. I feel fine and functional.
I hope you could share me some of your experience.
hcv and hbv have no synthoms until death only very few acute hepatitis have synthoms but cronic ones never have.also the blood tests are useless to know liver damage, you can have cirrhosis and normal blood tests
the only tools to know liver damage are fibroscan or biopsy
