Before I was diagnosed with Chronic hep b, the only symptoms I felt were aching joints and body. I felt really sore in the mornings and couldn't lift both arms in the mornings. It didn't know I had hep b until the doctor gave me a blood test.

Arthritis and arthralgias are well recognized and relatively common accompaniment to viral infections. The most common viruses causing arthritis/arthralgias are parvovirus, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, rubella, and the alphaviruses [1]. Joint complaints are also observed less commonly in association with a wide variety of other viral infections (eg, mumps, enteroviruses, herpesviruses)
