Could be mono: If you continue to feel poorly you should go back for a recheck. Sometimes mono can give these kind of symptoms. Mono is not a scary thing, it will usually pass on its own. If it is a more severe severe case there are some medications that can help. It can be associated with some other problems so it would be good to be checked if you do not get better.
