Please forgive me if this topic has been discussed previously....I hope I can get something to help my over active mind. Ha!
I tested positive for mono yesterday after I "encouraged" my GP to do the blood test given that I felt like a truck has hit me even though I've not had the flu. I was in bed Sun-Tues, had a sore throat which turned into the crud so I went to see her to rule out bronchitis. she said I had a tonsil stone on my tonsil which explains why I've felt like I've had a piece of popcorn stuck in the back of my throat that just wouldnt go down I told her. She just poo-poo'd that comment saying if it doesn't go away she would send me to an ENT. Huh? Got a z-pack and then got the call last night I tested again for mono. This is my 3rd time....2nd time in two years. My first time was when I was in 7th grade and I had full blown mono....2 weeks of high fever, lathargic and my right gland (same side this stone is on) swelled up like I swallowed an egg sideways. I missed a month of school and was told I'd never get mono again.
She ordered the EBV IGM (sp) test to confirm my mono test yesterday...what really will this test show? Has anyone had this done to rule out mono or confirm it or even more, lymphoma? I'm not worried about anything, I just liked to be armed and prepared for what might come my way you know?? I had a D&C a week ago to rule out endo cancer (history of endometrosis since 14) so I'm wondering now at 44 am I going to be dealing with something else, maybe not cancer but a crazy virus??
Ok, I'm rambling....sorry. Any help, direction, advice is very much appreciated. Thank you and God bless!
