Possible to get mono/glandular fever twice?
I got mono about...7-8 years ago and notice that when I go through a lot of stress in my life (immune system runs down) and I seem to have mimic symptoms of mono. You know, the sore throat, swollen glands, INCREDIBLY tired feeling...I keep reading that you can't get it again, but I don't believe this is one hundred percent true.
In fact, about 5 days ago, I started feeling that way and it hasn't gotten better. Granted, it hasn't gotten any worse, but not any better either. I'm tired. Exhausted really. My throat hurts. My glands feel a tad better today.
I thought maybe it could be a different sort of viral infection or even strep, but my throat doesn't look like I have strep (which usually looks funky..) and I'm not ever running a fever, that I can feel. I think maybe I did a day or two after the sore throat started, but when I took my temp, the highest it ever got was in the 99.1-99.9 region, never getting any higher than that. And today, the highest was 99. Not really considered a temp associated with strep.
Regardless, I feel horrible and want some advice. Please keep in mind that I'm currently uninsured and just running over to the doctor for loads of tests is not financially feasible....(darn economy caused me to lose my job...)
Life DOES get better eventually....
