Today I received my blood tests results and I've noticed that 2 things were abnormal. SGPT was 92 when it should have been under 50 and my blood cholesterol is at 210.
Last month I took a week of Ketonal Forte and another two Celebrex for back pain. I know NSAIDs can cause an increase in the liver enzymes but almost three weeks have passed since then. Now I'm just taking a muscle relaxant that should have helped with my sciatica but didn't.

Can this be a hepatitis? I've received my second dose of hep b vaccin on 15 april and my first dose on 15 march along with hep a vaccin.
If I get tested for hepatitis would it come out positive due to my vaccination?
