Tonsillitis: Infectious mononucleosis is a cause of prolonged tonsillitis and fatigue. The tonsils may remain swollen after the infection has resolved. If an Otolaryngologist finds no active inflammatory process in your throat, chronic anxiety and stress may be the cause of a sensation of a lump in the throat. Postinfection fatigue may last weeks. If your blood work has normalized I expect improvement soon.
