Re: been ill for 3 weeks whats wrong with me

I think a visit to the doctor is in order.. hard to say what it is, may just be a very bad virus, but the 3 weeks is a long time to be sick.

claudia,
I had Mono back in 1997 and felt the same thing you're feeling now. Maybe get tested for it. I hope everything goes well for you.

Re: been ill for 3 weeks whats wrong with me

claudia,
Do you have an appetite? Are you fevered? Just a few more things that I wanted to know. I didn't have an appetite, but I can't remember if I was fevered or not. It's been over 11 years ago. However, this past November, I wound up having Mono again along with bronchitis and pneumonia. The Mono wasn't as bad as it was back in 97. I did lose weight the first time I had Mono. I hope you get to feeling better soon. I know how it feels to feel like that. Get well soon!!!
Shannon

Re: been ill for 3 weeks whats wrong with me

My appetite is odd I will look at food and feel sick but know im hungry and then i will either retch or be sick after eating havent had a fever but very sweaty at night..the glands are the worst which is probably whats making me feel sick..You sound like you had a really rough time of it

Re: been ill for 3 weeks whats wrong with me

claudia,
I did have a hard time with it. When I had Mono, I did get a little hungry, but couldn't eat much. I would take a few bites and then get sick to my stomach. You seem to be having the same symptoms that resemble Mono, but I would get checked out just to be sure. I was told that once you have Mono, you will have it the rest of your life, which means, it stays in your system and are apt to get it again. Just be sure to get yourself checked out soon. The funny thing was the fisrt time I had it, I had to tell my doctor to check me for Mono. I told him all of my symptoms; tired all the time, no energy, not very hungry and he had no clue as to what was wrong with me. It's sad that I had to tell a doctor to test me for Mono.
Keep me posted as to how you're feeling and what you find out.
Well wishes for you!!!
Shannon

Just a thought, but is there a possibility of being pregnant?
