It’s been a while since I’ve posted on here - mostly because my anxiety lessened hearing others going through the same struggle, so thank you for that.
I also saw a slight upswing in my symptoms and thought I’d turned a corner. The last two weeks though, the virus has put me squarely in my place and I feel like I’m in the worst Groundhog Day ever. Almost all of my original symptoms have come back - blurred vision, breathlessness, unexpected bouts of being overwhelmingly tired - along with horrible cold symptoms, sinus and ear pain, neck and jaw pain, congestion, GI upset, etc.
This is first so unbelievably depressing. I can’t wrap my head around feeling this way again or the idea of when I’ll get better.
What’s even more frustrating is that I reached out to my primary care doc, and she said it sounds like I caught a virus, as mono doesn’t relapse. She literally said to me, “that’s not how mono works, it doesn’t go away and come back.” This is contrary to everything I’ve read online and heard from folks on this forum.
She wants me to come in for an office visit on Monday to be seen for a virus or possible sinus infection (!!!!!!) and all I can think is she either doesn’t get it and won’t be able to help with the mono, or I’m going to die of sepsis from having this mix of viral/sinus infections. Either way, my odds aren’t feeling great and I just feel SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO FRUSTRATED. Sooooooo very very frustrated.
Also, as an aside, I bought this tea sampler pack - it had echinacea and some other “breath easy” etc type ones, and I’m too scared to drink them because of all the crazy warnings about people allergic to daisys or with liver problems. I know that sounds silly but I don’t trust my body to drink tea right now. Sigh.
