I've recently been sick so often. I've had the flu in December and a throat infection for the past 2 weeks and was recently diagnosed with mono today. I have very bad health anxiety and even though the doctor told me it was mono, there are symptoms that I don't have and ones that are so weird that makes it hard for me to think it is even mono!!
Day by day it just seems to get worse. 😦
Pain when breathing in from the upper right breast and armpit. Previous pain in the back, swollen neck glands and pain on the collarbone (almost as if something is sitting on it)... I'm not sure if this is the beginning because I only felt swollen glands and some neck pain previously after the sore throat? I think I may be catching a fever... I first took amoxicillin the first week and I ended up with a rash on the back of my wrist. I then took co-amoxiclav, but just got off of it as it does not help with mono and I've already gotten over my throat infection. I was told to go back in 4-6 weeks if I still have swollen glands, but I kinda really want to get a CT scan of my neck in case it is anything serious...
I know there isn't really anything to help with mono, but this is my first time with it. Can someone please suggest any tips on how to handle it better??? How long will it take to get better??? I'm a student so it has been really difficult to focus on my studies too.
