Mono after effects?

Ive been tested for mono and didn't have it. However I was told I probably had it and it went away. They said that I am getting after effects and I should wait for my symptoms to die down(they haven't). Ive had these symptoms for around 9 months and just noticed my first few symptoms after being sick for a week(maybe being sick triggered something?). I don't feel sick at all though. Was curious what everyone's take on this may be. Nobody is sure what I have and Ive been to around 7-8 doctors.

Sinus Congestion
Fingernail Ridges/Splitting
Hair Lose(head, eyelashes, eyebrows)
Getting some greyhairs on my head
Swollen Eyelids, dry eyes(sometimes)
Vision Problems(Shadowing, double vision) (eye pressure)
Lymph Nodes
Enlarged Spleen
Chronic Fatigue(when I wakeup my whole body is aching most the time, aches go away around hour later)
Armpit odor, very irritated/red/painful when using deodorant
Head aches, ear pressure(sometimes earaches)
Neck muscles seem swollen
Coughed up a few tonsil stones over the last 9 months
Throat seems to have an odor coming from it sometimes.

Hi, that's quite the list of symptoms!  I'm confused though because you listed all those symptoms, but you also said you don't feel sick...?  I don't want to say it's not Eppstein-Barr because EBV can have a different impact on different people.  With that said though, I would think there's something else going on besides EBV, maybe multiple things.  Sorry all those doctors haven't been able to find anything.  Have you had an EBV titer test?  I would be curious to see what that says; it's possible if you have some sickness, maybe that re-activated the EBV.

Have had that done other than the mono test. I am currently investigating that it may be a thyroid problem, getting my Ft3/Ft4 levels check soon along with a LFT and CMP test. The EBV tests seem pretty expensive :(
