Swollen lymph nodes and mono
Back in November I went to the doc with fatigue. She did my blood work and I had a low WBC count at 3.1 she thought I was fighting a virus. I found a few swollen lymph nodes in my neck. Dec 2nd she tested me for ebv virus aka mono. My ebv titters showed I had active mono. Since then I've had swollen glands in my under arms and small ones in groin. I had a ct of neck and chest. The only thing that was found was the small ones in my neck. It's now feb 1st the nodes are still swollen but my fatigue has gotten much better. My question is is it normal to have lymph nodes swollen this long? It's been 3 monthS since the 1st ones popped up. They haven't grown and some hurt so don't. Should I worry?

Re: Help please

I don't know the answer to the question, but I wanted to welcome you to the boards. Hopefully someone will have information for you soon.

I did look around a bit on the Internet and it looks like they might remain swollen for a few months with some people. But I would check in with your doctor -- or maybe get a second opinion for peace of mind.

Take care.
