I think I have mono.
I got a really bad sore throat a couple weeks ago, swollen ***** lymph nodes, fever, the works...I went to the doctor and was prescribed antibiotics even though the stre test was negative. She asked if I thought it was mono but I said I hadn't been exceptionally tired so no. The symptoms went away and i thought I was good. the last couple days i have been noticing that my lymph nodes are still slightly swollen and I have been exhausted. Then today I realized I have been super exhausted for quite a while. I have gone from no caffeine to 3 or more cups of coffee a day (and i'm still tired). I have just been attributing it to parenting a 14 month old and staying up too late waiting for SO to get home from work. Anyways....if you have had mono how long did it take to get your energy back and are there any ways to speed up recovery?
