I don't know the reason of my high bilirubin (1.5). If it is considered jaundice, I have no other symptoms of the disease.

When I had jaundice, I felt tiredness, head ache, and burning in my stomach. My skin was itching and it was yellow in color. I also had a fever.

For some time now, I discovered that my stools were getting harder and harder to pass. Later I saw I was having recurring malaria and typhoid fevers. I now noticed that my urine is very brownish and I have pepperish sensation at urination. My eyes are at times yellowish. I always have itching all over my body. I did some tests it was discovered that I have billrubin in my urine and blood. I have been treated for malaria and typhoid but my urine is still brownish especially after a dose of antibiotics or food that contains vegetable proteins.
