Thumbs down Mononucleosis

Yep I got it. This shit sucks. I've been living off IV bags for the last 3 days. No food in 3 days. FML!!

The coughing is the worse part. Holding food in is impossible.

I'm done.

If you get mono as a kid, you usually have very few symptoms.

had for nearly 9 months before it got diagnosed, after several doctors. im into bodybuilding, so every time i would feel better i would workout, and sick again. $5 dollar bottle of cheap steroid prescription from doctor and back to 100%. As said earlier in the thread, the worst part is the epic fever and the sweats. Good luck OP and remember, take it easy and get LOTS of sleep.

I lost 30 lbs when I had mono. It was so bad I had to withdrawl from school for a semester. It's been over 5 years and I still wake up feeling tired no matter if I sleep 3 hours or 16. I don't know if that's a after effect of it or not, but I miss being able to get a good night sleep.

I had it bad for a month, it's one of the worst things you can get. I do think it lingers on as EBV in many cases.

sry to hear that man. i got mono like a month after i got back from thailand and after reading how symptoms don't show for like 1-2 months, i knew i got it from thailand. karma got me on that one...

worst part is not being able to swallow anything and having trouble sleeping with dry mouth. my throat was so inflamed i had difficulty drinking water. i did lose 15lbs when i did have it though. i didn't have the sweats or fevers just extreme inflammation of throat.

mine only lasted 3 weeks. i drank a shit ton of water and still went to the gym and did light weights (something about exploding an organ if you over stress yourself) and stayed in sauna and steam room for hours which def imo helped.

we are blood bros now as mono stays in your blood stream for life . get well.

Rest is recommended during the acute phase of the infection, but activity should[citation needed] be resumed once acute symptoms have resolved. Nevertheless, heavy physical activity and contact sports should be avoided to mitigate the risk of splenic rupture, for at least one month following initial infection or splenomegaly has resolved, as determined by a treating physician.[8]

You sure it was mono? BKK is a crazy place. Go update your 33 page post about the girl at the gym. We're all curious to know what happened after she caught you when that girl answered your phone.

Hopefully you can eat, I couldn't everything in my mouth tasted like acid so my doctor prescribed me lydocaine <sp> to numb everything in mouth.that did not help as it felt worse after doing that.
I went from 215 to 178 lbs in less than a month, I thought I was dying.

I thought black guys were impervious to contracting mono? This changes everything, lope.

Damn seems like you guys had this really badly

I went to the doctor with really swollen glands in my neck and usual symptoms and the first thing she said to me was : "I'm 100% sure it's not mono, I believe it might be HIV or toxoplasmosis we'll need to draw some blood". Was stunned throughout the rest of the day.The next day she calls me saying it's 100% mono in my blood.. FFFFUUUUUU

Luckily only took me 3 weeks to get rid of it but I was sweating like a pig in my sleep and my throat just clogged up completely at times. After about 2 weeks I felt more active than I ever had in the past year (caught up on sleep I guess ) and my libido shot up aswell, cf gf & kitchentable
