I got diagnosed with mono a little over a month ago via the monospot test which was positive. Since then I have been feeling slightly worse, then better, then worse again, and of course Dr. Google told me that I either have Lymphoma or am at risk for Lymphoma. I suffer from very bad anxiety and things like this put me over the edge. About five months ago I had an immense amount of blood work done and everything came back fine. I don't have any swollen lymphnodes, although I sometimes feel my spleen swell up which I know is normal for mono. But what scares me the most is that this morning I woke up sweating, not drenched, the day after I read that night sweats are a symptom of Lymphoma. I am going to assume that I woke up a little sweaty because my room was hot and my sheets are thick. But, not I can't get this thought out of my head that I may have lymphoma and my mono diagnosis was wrong. Cancer is not very prevalent in my family. The only person that had cancer was my grandmother on my fathers side, she had breast cancer. Has anyone else who has had mono had these fears before? I feel so alone and scared.
