Has anyone had mono without being tired?

Ok so my lymph nodes are fuckin huge, my throat is killing me, a few weeks ago I had influenza really bad with 103 fever, headaches once in a while. I'm not tired though. I went to an ENT (ear nose and throat doctor) yesterday and he said my lymph node problem could be caused by mono, HIV, or some other infection. I recently acquired a girlfriend who is pretty much my first real serious girlfriend. I got the flu like 3 weeks after meeting her (we kiss just about non stop when we are aroudn). The ENT gave me AUgmentin which is a powerful antibiotic and he said if my lymph nodes don't shrink after two weeks of use to make another appointment. I'm hoping I have mono but i'm not tired, I have just about every other symptom except fatigue. Is it possible I have mono?

It's possible, however if they took blood, they should have told you.

Well when I was at the doctor who referred me to an ENT I told him I had a blood test while I was in the emergency room for influenza (couldn't keep down fluids and was dehydrated). So he looked up the results of the blood test. I really need another test I guess.

Yeah you need another blood test if you're that concerned about it. Is your gf exhibiting any symptoms?

you could have strep throat


i had strep in late december. my doctor thought i had mono because i was showing all the right symptoms but he gave me a strep throat exam first because to confirm mono, you need a blood test and the q-tip fhing for your throat is much easier.

No actually she is not at all. I had sex with her right before I got the flu, I also had sex with her 2 weekends ago and this past weekend and she has never been sick. She said she thought she had mono once but the doctors diagnosed as some other viral infection. Weird how we have so much sex and I get sick and she never gets sick. Another funny thing, before this christmas (right after I started seeing her) I haven't had a fever since I was in grade school, i'm in college now.

Based off of what you said, I'm gonna have to go with ephemerous and second strep throat. I'd definitely get it checked because it's extremely contagious.

What about these swollen lymph nodes? And what about getting the flu a few weeks ago. I just got this sore throat and have noticed swollen glands for weeks

Nearly any infection can cause swollen lymph nodes. Many things can cause pharyngitis. The doc should have performed a rapid strep test; augmentin is effective against strep so if that's the cause it should go away fairly quickly.

Yes, it could be mono. Mono hits people differently (the vast majority never experience even the slightest symptom).

I originally went to the doctor just for my swollen lymph nodes then went to the ENT. I didn't start having the sore throat till last night (night after I saw the ENT)

i had strep thoat and took the pills and everything and they thought it was gone...lo and behold 5-6 months later i still didn't have any symptoms but it still showed up in the blood tests...oh and that's what they think triggered my rhumatoid arthritis...isn't that just great...one small thing led to something i can't get rid of for the rest of my life

as for having mono and not being tired...it happened to my brother, they only found the mono because his spleen enlarged so much that he had terrible side pain (and couldn't do anything til it went away...as busting a spleen can be a problem)
