hi everyone. i have posted quite a bit of discussions but this one will be explaining my mono experience as a whole and if you can relate great, please comment some reassurance or similar symptoms. i’m 19, always in good health, until In october 2017 i got plagued with mono. i had the classic fever, sore throat, achiness, weakness, and fatigue. I thought the nightmare would end but i truly never felt better after that.
my symptoms with chronic ebv have been:
-nerve pain all over body (tingling, shooting pains, jolts)
-neck pain and pressure
-ringing in ears
-mouth sores/bleeding painful gums
-on and off sore throat
-sharp pains in lymph nodes
-heaviness in rib/chest area
-to the bone FATIGUE
-extreme health anxiety
-one bout of mild oral thrush
i have been a hypochondriac since birth. i suffer very bad ocd. i convinced myself this is cancer or hiv (even though i have negative tests). i am BAFFLED how little doctors know about chronic ebv and their is barely any cut and dry info about it online. It’s like a chronic condition only those suffering understand and is very lonely. It’s very easy to let our anxiety wander and make us think this is something more sinister. anyways, please comment your symptoms of chronic ebv. use this forum to vent! i need to read experiences of others.
