've bad mono for about 5 weeks now.. My throat was swollen and red and I had the white spots on my tonsils.. Also my spleen was very enlarged.. Also one night I had pain in my right side but my doctor told me it wasn't my liver and my liver is fine. I got another ultrasound for my spleen and my doctor said that its still swollen but also all my symptoms have come back. I have a sore throat and it's difficult to swallow. I'm getting really scared this is a really severe case of mono.. Will I have to get hospitalized? I'm very worried.. Oh and I have been way more exhausted now than how I started with the mono
Well, you could be having a bad case of mono with relapse. The treatment is just symptomatic and most patients get relief with time. However, it’s best you consult a doctor immediately. Apart from these try all grandma recipes for cough and cold: hot chicken broth and soup, warm lemonade, ginger and honey concoction, warm saline gargles (gargling with warm water in which a pinch of salt is mixed) and applying vicks vaporub over your chest, throat and forehead/nose. Also, take adequate bed rest. Please consult your doctor regularly. Take care!
