Do I Have To See A Specialist To Get A Mono Spot Ordered
I had two positive mono spot tests years apart, with symptoms. Can't have mono twice, right? What could have caused the second positive test?

My 8 yr old child has been ill since 10/2010. diangosis mono, strep, flu, sinus, croup, pneumonia. Need a specialist, don't know what kind. Help! ?
Depends on pattern: If your child has been healthy up till oct. 2010, but you've had trouble since, it seems like a new onset health problem. Were these DX from a continuing source of health care or multiple urgent care centers.(lables are cheep/ ot always accurate) i would wonder about mild asthma as a unifying DX for the majority of those listed.
