I am exhausted all the time and swolllen glands along with sore throat could this be mono and should I be seen or just deal with these symptoms?
Go in. Yes, it sounds a lot like mono but, there are other syndromes that result in fatigue. Check with your doctor if this has been going on for more than around 5-6 weeks. Chronic fatigue, hypothyroidism and lymphoma can all make you feel tired and you can't tell them apart without an examination.
Something infectious. Mono is from the ebv virus, and can cause swollen glands (lymph nodes) and big tonsils. Strep throat can do the same thing, but strep throat needs antibiotics. Some other infections can cause big lymph nodes. More rarely, blood disorders and blood cancers cause swollen lymph nodes and fatigue (person often gets anemic). This all means that a trip to the doctor would be wise.
Spleen 2cm swollen. Normal blood work. Had mono 8 months ago. Glands a swollen on neck but have sore throat.?
Spleen enlargement. after mono usually resolves after several months, but recurrent viral infections can cause delayed return to normal size. An ultra sound can give a better measure of the true size in contrast to palpation below the rib margin. Other conditions can cause enlarged spleen as well, so further blood work may be indicated if splenomegaly persists. Read more...
Spleen 2cm swollen. Normal blood work. Had mono 8 months ago. Glands a swollen on neck but have sore throat. Can mono re-activate?
Insignificant. I would consider your findings insignificant in the scheme of things. There is more than one agent that can trigger a mono like syndrome & that amount of speanic change is not that impressive, whether found by a good physical exam or other means.The CDC debunked the idea of a "chronic" mono more than a decade ago. You likely acquired another viral illness that will pass. Read more...
Swollen gland under jaw 1.5 inches and protruding/feels hard; sore throat, earache; green smelly snot; exhausted; congestion. What could I have?
See a physician. A swollen gland under the jaw that is first noted when suffering a sore throat, earache and nasal congestion may or may not be caused by the same infection causing the other symptoms. If the gland is under the jaw and not in the neck it may represent a stone in one of the salivary glands or duct. If it is in the neck it's probably related to the sore throat. See a physician .
