Response from Dr. McGovern

Since everyone is negative, I wonder if you are an "inactive carrier" of hepatitis B. The test that would be most helpful is a HBV DNA to see if you have any virus in your system. If not, you are an inactive carrier. This test is expensive so make certain you do not have to pay for it completely.
