If you have risk factors for hepatitis C infection (eg, drug use, blood transfusion in the past) then you may have hepatitis C infection.
I would get a HCV RNA test to see if the infection is active and some liver function tests to see if your liver shows signs of irritation.
I would also get a hepatitis A and B vaccine to prevent any other hepatitis virus infections.
hepatitis A Ab,
