i was diagnosed with mono/GF 16 months ago. I was very ill for the first 4 months with sore throat, enlarged liver and fatigue. Now I am left with fatigue as my only symptom. My family doctor has sent me to an Infectious Disease Specialist at the university, a Neurologist and my Gynecologist to check out everything to make sure I do not have any other condition causing the daily exhaustion. All the test have come back normal--which I am thankful for. However, now I am still so fatigued that I cannot work or socialize much. I stay home and rest most of the time. If I am going to go to a family birthday party or to church, I plan my week so I get plenty of rest without doing household chores so I have enough energy to go out. On my good days I can do light house work like dusting, feed the chickens in my backyard and cook dinner. On my bad days I have head aches, nausea and am so exhausted that I spend the day in the recliner chair or in bed.
Is there anyone else who has mono/GF symptoms for so long? I am 62 years old and before this have always worked full time, been in a walking club and enjoyed volunteering. I have never been this ill in my life!
