Unless you eat very well and take a multi-vitamin, your body is probably depleted of vitamins and minerals after your bout with mono. The thyroid needs the mineral selenium to turn the T4 into T3 for your body to use. If you are lacking this you will feel very tired indeed. Check out Mary Shomans thyroid site on about.com for a list of Dr.s that may be near you. There are also alternatives there you may want to look into. Good luck.
