Just diagnosed with chronic mononucleosis

Any supplements that I can take to help? Ive been living with this for years and just finally after many docotrs found out whats going on. No one around me really seems to take it seriously and think its all in my head even after a confirmed blood test. Im 31 years old and feel pretty much alone and lost.

I have been recently diagnosed as well and I know the struggle of no one around you understanding what you are going through. I don't have an answer to your question due to asking the same question myself but I wanted you to know you aren't alone in your feelings. I hope you find answers here.

I had something weird for years and Valtrex was the first thing that worked.

Maybe cimetidine/ranitidine:
