Postive Monospot.

What EXACTLY does that mean?

My last internal medicine doctor did a monospot test as one of her last ditch efforts to pinpoint my ongoing fatigue (over a year and a half) and all she said was that it was positive. I've been under the impression that it means I had mono at some point in my life and that it doesn't mean its my present problem.

I would really appreciate some input. I'm so sick and tired of being sick and tired. :'(

Re: Postive Monospot.

Hi...if you have a positive then you have infectious Mono...

Have you had a titer test done? To see what levels the EBV and/or CMV are?

Did the doctor put you on any antivirals???

You may want to read up on Dr. Martin Lerner. He is a specailist in CFS..he uses very high doses of anitvirals for treatment.

I have been on Valtrex and now on Valcyte.

If you have been feeling lousy for a while I would suggest getting a doctor that will treat you with antivirals and see if they help. It could take months to feel any better. It is worth a try.

Good Luck to you!!
