I am 20 years old. 2 months ago, I started to get a sore throat with white patches on tonsils, fever, body aches, night sweats, and swollen lymph nodes. I went to the doctor and they tested me for strep and did a spot test for mono. Both came back negative. I’ve had recurring sore throats about every 2 weeks since the first initial sore throat. Yesterday, I went to an Ears, Nose and Throat doctor and he had me do a blood test for EBV, even though I had a negative spot test. Why is he testing me again even though I got a negative result the first time??? I’m scared it’s something else because I googled all my stomtoms and its literally telling me I have an STD or something!!! I have crazy anxiety and I know I should trust the doctor but I would like some reassurance from anyone who may be going through or has went through the same thing. I just want to feel better already.
