13 year old girl had an apparent sore throat and larengytis. She lost her voice and now is having trouble coordinating speech with her breathing so she is unable to talk. We just found out that she has Mono as a result of a blood test. She went two weeks without being diagnosed. She did not have a fever or swollen glands. She gets tired after very little activity. What should we do about her Mono? Do you know of any cases in which Mono has affected speech and if so is there any treatment? We have already taken her to an ENT and speech therapist.
