Living With Acute Symptoms

I was advised I was Hep B Chronic and started adefovir (spelling?) 4 days into treatment I turned into the man in the Tango advert (Bright Orange and yellow all over). My doc now reckons I show all the classic Acute symptoms (I have read the info page). I guess I am lucky as I had come to terms with being chronic so acute is a blessing in disguise. I get my labs back in 3 days to confirm either way.

My question is how long will I feel this bad and have people point at the funny orange man! So far I have the following symptoms:
Nausea, (really really bad).
Excessive tiredness
Aches, pains.
Loss of appetite.
Jaundice (really really bad).
Complete lack of stamina/energy.

So far I have been this way for 10 days, I guess I can live with it with the 90% chance that I could make a full recovery, but it would be nice to know from others experiences.

Thanks

Hey I am not sure that everyone will know who the Tango man is!!! lol But for all you peops who are not British, he is very very orange. I still think Bart Simpson is the best visual image Col. You know my symptoms so I will not bore you again. Did you have a pain in upper right rib area?
