Glandular fever/Mono?

Posted , 10 users are following.

I'm just wandering if it's possible to have glandular fever without having a sore throat? I have been unwell for about 2 months now, it started out as headaches and the feeling that I was getting a cold but after a few days the cold never came out and then I just felt a kind of dizziness ever since but not normal dizziness, more like an unsteady feeling/heavy head. I was basically bed ridden for about 4 days and did feel very unwell. I'm a bit better now but still have the heavy head feeling and mild headaches. My friend told me that she had glandular fever a few years ago and she felt the exact same however she had swollen glands, I haven't had swollen glands that I know I guess it's possible I could of missed them or they weren't as swollen. I know it affects people in different ways but I just want to know if any of you have had similar experiences.

    When I went to the doctors and found out my tonsils were swollen, I didn't have a sore throat at that time. It came on a few days later, though. 

    Went for a checkup a few weeks ago, and still don't have a sore throat. It feels dry.
