What could this be?? Mono test was negative!
OK, I'll try to make this short and to the point:
Last week I had a pain in my lower back/hip on my right side that came on suddenly and then slowly got better over 4-5 days.
Over the weekend I noticed swollen lymph nodes in my neck, a little bit of a sore throat, and some excessive sweating.
Since then I've had these symptoms:
-lymph nodes still swollen
-night sweats so bad it was like I wet the bed
-sweating during the day, even when I'm cold
-loss of appetite
I went to the doctor on Monday afternoon and he basically told me he wasn't sure what was wrong with me but it sounded a little bit like Mono. So he prescribed a Z-pack and they took some blood. They called me back today to let me know that my results were all normal and I don't have mono, and "keep taking the antibiotics and you should be fine." Well, you don't know what's wrong with me! How do you know that a z-pack is gonna make everything "fine"??
But I guess my real question is, is it possible that I do have mono and it was just a false negative? I've heard of that happening with mono, something about testing for it too early or something.. But if I really don't have mono, what else could it be??
