i have been sick for about 3 days now. my glands have been swelling since then and are now enlarged and painful. my tonsils are also enlarged. i have also had intermittent bouts of nausea and my temperature keeps going up and then going down and coming back up. i've also been having severe headaches throughout. im also very tired.
the headaches, nausea and fever came before the swollen tonsils which only came yesterday.
i know these symptoms are consistent with mononucleosis but i had a litany of blood tests about a month ago including one for glandular fever which was negative. im relatively confident i havent contracted it off anyone since then.
