Sixth month of mono with weird symptoms

Posted , 6 users are following.

Hi. 20th of December last year kissed a guy. On the 20th of January a tiny rash appeared on upper lip. Lips also felt on fire and itched. 

From April 19th until around August 19th I've had a constant low grade fever with throbbing headache. That's gone but what I still have is:

Head pressure;

Eyes pressure;

Area above eyes is still swollen. It's 21st week of my mono.

Fatigue, obvi; 

Reddish eyes;

Crazy dizziness;

Feeling of pulsation in my head;

Tiny rash on my lips that burns and itches.

Out of 21 weeks, for 11 weeks I stupidly took Valtrex, 3 grams per day. I'm afraid I prolonged my ilness by taking it.

Did anyone on here had/have eyes pressure as a symptom? 

How about swollen area above eyes?

Finally, was taking valtrex  was extremely dumb of me? They say antivirals don't let virus replicate so your body don't make antibodies.

    Rosanna and Shawna,

    I also have stomach pain gut pain and uformed stool. 

    Sometimes I have sharp forearm pain as well.

    That's all our immune systems attacking their own systems mistakenly because of virus.
