About 2 weeks ago, I went to the fair with my children, rode a couple of rides, and then by the time I got home I was sick as a dog (nauseated big time) Thought it was just that I am WAY to old to be riding rides lol. I went to the doctor the next day, he said I had two ear infections, and sent me home with some antibiotics. The next day all of my lymph nodes were swollen in my neck, big time shotty lymphadenopathy, and behind my head as well, the back of my head was very sore.... I went back to the doctor and he told me that he really felt I had mono. He did a Monospot on me, CBC and also Epstein Barr. I had severe mono with every symptom imaginable, was in the hospital for a week, when I was about 20, Im 40 now, and I have to admit I feel the exact same way. The Monospot came back negative, and the CBC was okay, but the Epstein Barr was very high. He said right then that I had chronic fatigue, he put me on acyclovir, but now reading all of your posts, now Im not sure what I have. I still feel really bad... can't sleep more than about 1-1/2, wake up with severe muscleaches in my neck and the back of my head, my back hurts, i run a low grade fever every day, i feel so tired that i have a hard time just doing anything for me or my family. I have always been a go getter, and now i feel like im totally wasted all the time. Im just really kinda lost at this point, if anyone can offer me any suggestions on where to go from here... please? Thanks and God bless all of you!
