    Mono but negative test

    My girlfriend started having mono about 7 weeks ago. A week ago, I came down with constant headaches, pain in my upper left abdomen, feeling tired, occasional nausea and now a sore throat - since yesterday. However i got my blood tested a couple of days and the monospot test came back negative, though the antibodies for EBV came back positive - apparently I had mono before but not now. However my symptoms are extremely characteristic of mono from what I've read up on it - could I still have mono?????

    Re: Mono but negative test

    I don't know about getting it twice though there is chronic mono. However, when my son had it, his first two blood tests were negative and the third one positive. Dr said that happens
