Out of the many hepatitis viruses, Hepatitis C is the one that affects the liver. Unless chronic in nature, this disease is asymptomatic. Fatigue, poor appetite, abdominal pain, nausea, jaundice, fever, muscle and joint pains and dark colored urine are some symptoms observed when one suffers from Hepatitis C. Direct contact with blood contaminated with the hepatitis C virus causes hepatitis C.
