This is just general.

First you need a liver functions panel test (ALT, AST, etc), a hbvdn (viral load) test, and complete HBV serology (HBsAg, HBsAb, HBeAg, HBeAb, HBcAB). These are all very standard tests. Based on the results, your doctor may order an ultrasound imaging report and or Fibroscan, before deciding whether you will need treatment, and if treatment is needed what is the best drug for you.

It will also be nice to know the cause of your collapse, whether it is due to Hepatitis directly or other conditions.

You should consult a doctor that is a specialist in treating HBV.
