I spent over a year planning my dream vacation which includes a ton of walking, carrying a heavy backpack, and hopping on a few flights. I'm now day 5 since I started feeling mono symptoms and supposed to leave for vacation in a 2 days. I have a couple of sporadic questions if you don't mind. I apologize in advance for the mental fog.
I'm confused about this fatigue I always hear of. Can you describe it?
Is it needing to sleep all the time, or just needing to not move? My doctor told me R&R is smart (of course she would) but when prodded she said it's fine for me to push through it and go on the trip if I feel I'm fine enough. What are the ramifications of pushing through it?
Also, when exactly should I expect to feel this fatigue? Right now my fever is by far my most miserable symptom and I honestly don't feel that fatigued outside the mental fog, fever, and weakness. Does the "fatigue" that everyone talks about regarding mono come after other symptoms disappear or is this as bad as it gets?
Did you have vivid dreams with mono? I'm normally a really peaceful deep sleeper but it feels like the second I start to nod out a really intense dream starts, it surprises me, and I wake up. Could be a sideaffect of my sleep medication maybe?
