does this sound like glandular fever?

Hi I had tonsillitis about 3-4 weeks ago and had penicillin v for it which cleared it up beautifully but the dr mentioned glandular fever as well but offered no blood test. Well since wed I am so chronically tired and have sore throat again gland under jaw swollen right side and a lump appeared on left side near collarbone which I'm guessing is a lymph node. I've had a constant headache which is worse when I lean forward and neck ache. Not pain but bloody uncomfortable. Joints ache as well. Despite the exhaustion I can't sleep. Also uncomfortable at roof of mouth where the nasal passages would meet the throat I suppose. Does this sound likely to be glandular fever or just another sodding virus. I'm 5 weeks pregnant too which I just found out and I know it can cause knackeredness in itself but this feels different to that pregnancy tiredness iyswim.

Sorry for long ramble
