i was diagnosed with mono about a year ago in july of 2018. i had symptoms for over 6-7 months. i was extremely anxious and worried, i was stressing myself out too much. i had weird symptoms, one of them was intense itching whenever i got hot.. pretty weird but this caused me to think i had lymphoma, thousands of dollars of tests later turns out it was just mono. i saw many different doctors, finally i saw an infectious disease specialist who knew all about mono. apparently in about 10% of mono cases, it lasts very long up to a year or longer, but it always goes away at some point. sure enough, it went away. shame it took so long, after so many anxious nights, and luckily i got it somewhat young (at 20) and don't have much fatigue or lasting effects. just know, if you are scared and worried its something more, it's almost certainly not. mono presents itself very weirdly in some, like me... i could not find anyone online saying they got it itchy with mono, sure enough, i did. trust me, it goes away, and to be honest, no special drinks, foods, or vitamins will speed up the process. of course you should eat healthy, but with mono, it takes its own course, just be patient and try not to worry, it will go away soon enough and life will be back to normal!
