In brief: Maybe
Mono tends to wax and wane.
The most common symptom is feeling "wiped out". Take a multivitamin daily, proper sleep habits, mild exercise all help. Don't burn the candle at both ends.

In brief: Yes
Mono is caused by the epstein barr virus.
You never truly get rid of this virus, it just lies dormant in the cells of your body. If you are starting to have the fatigue, sore throat and swollen lymph nodes again you could be having a recurrence of the infections. This could, however, just be another small infection.

There are blood tests that can tell whether you have active Ebstein-Barr infection. If you have pain in left abdomen, have your FP check for spleen enlargement.
