Sore throat, fever: Headache, tiredness, swollen lymph nodes, occasionally a rash. You should be tested if you have these, as it could also be several other things that would respond to antibiotics.

Even w/o diabetes: Mono: caused by 1 of 2 viruses (epstein-barr ebv) most cases, cytomegalovirus (CMV) causes fewer. Usually sore throat, fatigue, swollen glands fever, poor appetite. Can get big spleen, hepatitis, jaundice (yellow eyes), joint aches, neurologic problems, anemia, other. Diabetics can get this stuff too, only bigger issue because of dm. Rest, no alcohol., eat. Usually lasts 2 weeks, up to 6 mo.

Hi Dr. Heller. I just sent you a message asking you a question in your message box re: hepatitis due to EBV and/or CMV. Do they cause chronic hepatitis? I have a patient who had elevated transaminases, and tested positive for both EBV and CMV IgG (but not IgM). U/S is normal, and there are no other clues for the levated liver enzymes. By the way, can we ask questions here too?

Hi. Dunno about asking questions here. I think that what gets written here goes out for all to see; private questions are best done via messages. I'll get you there.

Fatigue, sore throat: A single, large lymph node on either side of the neck, sleepiness, nausea, loss of appetite and in some extreme cases, viral hepatitis (when mono is from CMV rather than ebv) are common symptoms that i've seen in my practice.
