Re: Have i got CFS???

All the symptoms you describe can be explained by a bout of mono. Before I got sick, I had the wrong impression that mono always came with a sore throat, and that was dead wrong as I never had any of the 'classical" symptoms. My symptoms were a terrible headache (like 10/10) and dizziness, fatigue and flu like feelings (with hardly any fever). There are different mono causing viruses (EBV, CMV and HHV-6 etc) and each person gets attacked and responds differently.
