I am new to the forum. 40 y old male. Since two months I am having strange symptoms. Let me describe them. First I was literally knocked down by the illness. I was thinking it was my last moments since I ve never felt that bad. I was feeling very big fatigue, temp loss of apetite which came back few days later, moderate temperature 37,5 mainly in the evenings, zero energy. I got depressed + got heart palpitations. I felt very weak. It felt like a flu but not such big temperature. Lymph nodes started to pin pain especially in the armpits. They were not swollen. Night sweats of upper part till midchest of my body only and continues since 5 weeks everynight which worries me 😦 Liver and spleen were not swollen which was checked on USG scan. I got blood test which showed increased lymphocytes but not by much and liver ALT increased twice and EBV Igg and EBNA IGG antibodies over 300 , EBV IGM was ok. lyme disease westernblot negative, tuberculosis negative All other test were ok including chest RTG, USG of nodes, CRP was ok + other viruses checked including liver viruses, HIV were negative, erythrocyte sedimentation rate slightly increased to 14. One doc said not to worry that it was past EBV infection since IGM was ok it could have been long gone but the thing is I dont recall being such sick anytime earlier than last two months, another doc said such symptoms could be caused by mono since I got tested bit late when first symptoms started which IGM could drop. I visited also hematologist worried with night sweats but she calmed me down and she said USG scans were clean, clean abdominal USG, clean RTG plus blood test ok which didnt indicate a hematology problem for her. I m still having prescribed computer chest tomography but some docs say it is not needed when other tests were ok. I would like to stop the diagnosis and clam down but this symptoms remind me everyday and night recently that something is wrong.
Since the beginning until now I am feeling like I am having constant flu, sore throat, nodes + arm muscles pain especially in the arm pits like pin pains there and in the neck and back of my head, one ear pain, also arm and neck muscle aches, strange current like feeling in my legs occasionally, pain is mainly located in the upper chest causing trouble to breathe fully like 1/3 of breath is taken away, pain from the neck and muscles behind the neck, constant feeling i am sick 😦 Can this be mononucleosis ? When I get nervous ab something the symptoms increases. But I don't think it is psychosomatic. After two months I am having a bit more energy better appetite, but still all the symptoms minus temperature. It is hard to stand them. Please tell me are this night sweats normal symptom in mono ? I got antibiotic but it is not helping as the doc suspected infection...
