Racing heart symptom of mono??

Hi im 18 and I need help with some possible mono symptoms. 2 months ago I started having bouts of tachycardia, usually up to 120 to 130, usually I get tachycardia and then fever imeddiatley after. So I had an echo and holter moniter and the echo said my heart looked great but the ekg suggested I had svt. But the doc said fevers and sickness can cause tachycardia. I was having anxiety and tachycardia and panic attacks almost every day for a month. I was still having the fevers but i was also having sinus pain so i figured the fevers were from sinus pain. 1 month after the onset i got really sick with mono symptoms, the roughest symptoms lasted 2 weeks. That was 2 weeks ago. Im still having sore throat, fatigue, some heart palpitations and overall like crap. my question is, has anyone had anything weird with thier heart since having or during mono? and can heart racing come on before mono? or was I going through mono from the begging and just hadnt gotten to the accute phase yet?

Hi, I would think your heart issues are more related to something other than mono.  Have you checked the Anxiety Forum on Medhelp?  In my opinion (keep in mind I'm not a doctor), I think it's much more likely the racing heart is caused by anxiety/panic attacks or something else.  If you don't agree with what your doctor has told you, you could get a second opinion.  As far as mono symptoms, they can last quite a while, especially if you're dealing with other factors (anxiety, sinuses, etc.).  I would try to get the other issues taken care of if possible, and that should let your body concentrate more on fighting off the EBV.  Hope this helps!

Hi, wondering how you're doing now. I have had chronic Epstein-Barr virus for over 20 yrs, had mono 33 yrs ago that essentially never went away. I found an infectious disease specialist and he says CEBV attacks the heart & causes supraventricular tachycardia. He is treating the CEBV with mega doses of anti-virals. If you are still experiencing all of this, don't wait until you are completely disabled before finding a specialist that knows what they are doing. This specialist is Dr. A. Martin Lerner in Beverly Hills, MI, near Detroit. Treatment generally takes a yr or longer but wish I had known this 20+ yrs ago. Such a waste of my life. Good luck!!

I was told I do not have Mono, but a high EBV, anyway, I have occasional PAC's (skipped beats) and my doc says they are not related to EBV, but, I have read they can be. I have had mine for over 8 years, and at that time, did not have EBV. I do know that anxiety and stress can bring on the tachycardia. It is no fun for sure.
