Hello, last June I was diagnosed with mono. All last summer and into the fall I was fatigued, had brain fog, vision problems, anxiety, some depression symptoms etc. This past January I was tested again for Mono as my symptoms were not going away. It came back positive for "chronic mono".
I was sent to an infectious disease specialist who had worked at the mayo clinic for over 20 years and had recently moved to a hospital near me. After getting some background information on when the mono started, etc he had me lay on a table for a couple of minutes and stand up. When I stood up he listened to my heart rate and compared the results to when i was laying down.
My heart rate when up 30+ points. he diagnosed me with me with Postural orthostatic tachycardia syndrome. After doing some research I found that 25% of all pots patients remember having a horrible virus for a long period of time before getting pots. one of these viruses was mono.
if you have been experiencing symptoms of mono like fatigue, blurry vision, anxiety, pain, stomach problems, etc please ask your doctor about POTS.
