I Had Mono and I Think Its Come Back
Back in August of 2006 I started feeling really sick and run down. It got worse when my throat felt like it was nearly swollen shut. After seeing my doctor and a few tests I discovered I had Mononucleosis.
I was so stunned since no one else I know had it and the fact that I am 37 years old. I always related the illness in younger people. My doctor put me on a regime of antibiotics and Valtrex which as many people know an anti-viral medication used to treat Herpes. Well I was out of work for 2 1/2 weeks. Valtrex had been shown to help people with Mono to get better quicker. Well that was 6 months ago and I have been fine until the last few days. I have been feeling ill again and my throat feels like it did when I had Mono plus I have been super tired no matter how much I sleep. I have been under a lot of stress the last 6 weeks due to a recent breakup with my ex. I have heard Mono can come back you never really rid your body of the virus which is caused by the Epstein Bar virus. I will see have to see my doctor here soon. Has anyone else out there ever had this before? I would be interested to hear about your symptoms and how long it lasted.
