Not likely relapse.: Infectious mononucleosis has 2 big causes. Cytomegalovirus (cmv), and epstein-barr virus (ebv). CMV has high fevers with chills, fatigue, and malaise. The main lab finding is peripheral lymphocytosis with over 10% atypical lymphocytes on blood smear. Ebv has pharyngitis and cervical lymphadenopathy. In both cases, infants may be asymptomatic or show mild diseaese, though CMV has side effects. ...Read more
Not important: Is your diagnosis of infectious mono correct? Because high monocytes can represent a variety of other diseases also. If you had lab proven infectious mono, the monocytes stay up for 4-8 weeks but that is not important. If you are worried re infecting others, the + igm of ebv is what determines if you can infect someone else and that may stay up up to 18 months. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was diagnosed with mono. Took a blood test recently and it had passed. Now I have an enlarged liver after the mono is gone, from what and how long?

Usually about 2 weeks with fatigue, sore throat, swollen glands; either can cause liver inflammation (w/ or w/o enlargement), enlarged spleen. Can take up to 6 months for recovery. Follow up labs. No alcohol, eat right; no contact sports if enlarged liver/spleen, . ...Read more
Would having mono 5 years ago cause a blood test to show possibility of autoimmune liver disease today?
No: In fact, if you have labs suggesting autoimmune hepatitis, i would be very concerned and would be hammering away at my doctor for all the information i could get. It is possible that an old hepatitis (infectious mono, hepatitis a) may trigger autoimmune hepatitis -- the jury's out on this, but it's moot. Please comply with your diagnosis and if needed treatment, and enjoy a long healthy life. ...Read more
Constant flu symptoms/fatigue, but had lots of blood work. Is mono possibility? Which blood tests would show abnormal in mono?
Sick for 2 weeks now. Throat so bad appeared to be mono (tests show it's not). Blood count normal. What's wrong?
Ask your doctor: There are many causes of a sore throat. If you have been tested for mononucleosis you have seen a doctor, so go ask that doctor what he/she thinks you have. Perhaps you have sinusitis and allergies with post-nasal drip. Perhaps you have some other kind of infection. Only your doctor (or another who sees you) can figure this out. ...Read more
