Hey everyone, new to this forum but I don't feel I have any options, so I figured Id reach out for advice.
Ive been dealing with an array of sicknesses and they don't seem to stop. At first, I had the flu, but then developed two sinus infections, bronchitis, tonsillitis, three positive strep tests and then finally mono that has been going on for about 5 months now.
My symptoms come and go, but include tonsils that almost touch, migraines, ear aches, severe body aches, body chills, nausea/vomiting, chronic fatigue, and uvulitis. In the past 5 months, Ive been in the ER 12 times, each time sending me out with fluids, some painkillers and anti nausea medicine with instructions to just rest. In the last few days, I've developed a mouth full of sores, on the tip of my tongue, the sides, and very large ones at the very back of my tongue where my tonsils are touching my tongue. I was able to keep and maintain an appetite through the first few months, but have lost 15 lbs and still can barely eat, drink, or swallow.
Im a student, and have had to withdraw from school last term, and this term. Originally the plan was to take out my tonsils, but apparently its too dangerous to do it with mono. Im really struggling, and losing hope with this. I don't feel like I'm ever getting better, and it feels like people don't understand how debilitating mono is...
