I was diagnosed with glandular fever back in february this year, after finding several hard lumps in my neck and groin. I did not have any terrible symptoms and the only thing bringing me to the doctor was the lumps. During and after this, I suffered a few weeks of flu like symptoms and constant tiredness which I largely ignored because I was still worried about diseases such as lymphoma. Due to this I have made a really slow recovery, was referred to hospital and tests show I am still slowly but surely fighting the disease 6 full months later.
It has been very difficult to explain the fatigue as people presume you are just being lazy since all other symptoms (other than swollen lymph nodes) have vanished. I strongly urge everyone to take time out of work or studies no matter how \"well\" you think you might feel. The specialist thinks my lymph nodes will not ever reduce in size, and the tiredness is definitely still with me. Trying to carry on as normal has set me back months and obviously it is distressing to have many (possibly permanent) hard lumps in your neck, groin and armpit. Has anyone else had a similar reaction in the glands?
