Mono takes a lot out of you. From the description above it sounds more like strep throat to me. Usually with mono you feel so crappy alot of times you can't even get out of bed and you are usually sick with it for weeks.

yeah it could be strep cause i dont feel to bad. Im going to the Doc tomorrow. I dont really feel bad. Just a really sore throat and a little achy. But i have these white spots on the back of my throat and next to my tonsils and i have no idea what they are.

I just came back from the doctor today. I thought I had strep throat, but they tested and it came out negative. They said that it could possibly be mono. My symptoms are: very sore throat (makes my teeth and ears hurt), headache, the right side of my neck is swollen (like I swallowd a golf ball), and my eyes even swelled. You should go to the doctor no matter what. They gave me antibiotics and a shot in the butt, litterally.

Re: A question about mono???

Alright,hun when I had mono which wasnt too long ago really sorta sounds similair but when I had mono i had a severe case and had a fever,sorethroat,a bump on the back of my neck,and couldnt go anywhere
It took me two weeks to recover and during it,it was difficult to digest things.....
Good luck and get well very soon

I just went to the doc. I have the same thing you have. It's probably strep.
