Hi. I am 44. Last year in September after being ill for 6 weeks ( doctor's failed to diagnose the correct problem.....) I was finally diagnosed as having Hepatitis B. I live in Spain but am British. I wa told that it was now chronic and therefore I have it in my DNA. Had they diagnosed sooner ( I went to the doctor when every joint in my body became very painful after I had a high fever with major pain similar I guess to severe rheumatism) could they have given me treatment to clear the acute Hepatitis and it would not have become chronic? Now that it is chronic - is it ever possible to clear from one's system after time and without medication? I have been given very very little information here from a decidedly "frosty" specialist. I would also like to know if this can affect my ability to have children ie if I ever do then they can be vaccinated against this being transmitted? Any advice and support will be very much appreciated. I feel pretty scared and alone with this although my family, close friends and partner have been very supportive. It is hard for anyone to understand who doesn't have the same thing. I would like to hear from people whi may have been through or are still going through the same thing?
