Nausea is here to stay...

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi All- been reading these forums on and off for awhile now and it's helped immensely so thank you!

I got diagnosed with mono four months ago which threw me for a loop since I had it four years ago (I'm 31 now). I had everything from night sweats, body aches, slight fever, chills, fatigue, but the worst of it was definitely the nausea. Everything else is gone except for the fatigue and the nausea which is persistent.

It's crazy to think that in month 4 it's still running me down, does anyone else experience it this far along? I'm wondering if its even worth seeing a doctor for the 5th or 6th time or if I just need to wait it out even longer...

    Hey Eric,

    I definitely had the nausea for a good 3 months. I would wake up in the morning and have morning sickness. I'm thankful I never threw up, but it was a horrible feeling that would last the first few hours of the morning EVERY day until it just started going away. I'm into month 4 of mono and all the symptoms have gone away, except the fatigue and this nasal congestion I have. The fatigue has significantly improved, but I can tell my energy levels are generally lower. Keep your head up. Also, take vitamins if you haven't, such as Lysine.

      Hey Matthew, glad to hear it's started to clear up for you. That definitely gives me some hope lol Fatigue I can deal with but the nausea is more than annoying. Especially since I'm trying to eat more and gain all that weight I initially lost.

    bro ive had a really similar experience . Most of my symptoms have gone away except for the nausea , its gotten better over time but im in month 6 now and its good day /bad day/ good day / bad day. It is so strange , and its pretty crappy altogether . I was in epic shape before this whole ordeal i was lifting/ running every day and now the gym is so far away . My sister and her son got sick around the same time as me and they have since made a full recovery . Im improving daily but its so slow its hard to tell. Its just a crappy ordeal , anyway it will eventually go away . Hang in there .

      Month 6?? Dang that's terrible. Glad that the other symptoms are gone so that's a good sign. I miss hitting the gym too that's for sure. My fatigue usually knocks me out too much but I'm hoping to get back in a couple of weeks. I got no muscle left which sucks.

      Thanks William. Sorry to hear that you've been dealing with it on and off since April. I get some good days where i feel 100% but it's rare. That's what makes it hard when you have one or two normal days then boom another week of fatigue and nausea. It knocks down your mood.

    Hey

    It does get easier i promise. I had it July 2017 and recovered march 2019. The tiredness, feeling sick, neck pain was the worst for me was i had HUGE anxiety. Everyone is different but it takes time a lot off it. I was sure i would never recover but i did fully x

      Thanks Rosanna. I've basically had nausea the whole week and today is the first time (so far) I woke up without it. But if it's not one thing it's another- I just feel fatigued and just generally feel unwell. Thank you for continuing to post on these boards even though you've been "normal" since March '19! Helps those of us still going through it.
