I started having the chills, fatigue, body aches, sore throat, and fever. The back of my neck has been hurting very bad. Could I have mono?

See a doc. This does not sound like mono. It could be enterovirus, which is not pleasant but not dangerous, or it could be bacterial meningitis which is dangerous and life threatening. If i see a patient like this they go directly to the er.

Secondary infection . Sounds like a viral or flu syndrome with muscle aches, pains, sore throat, and cough. Fever is common with many viruses. Give the symptoms a little more time to improve- 2-3 days. Take Acetaminophen or Ibuprofen for the fever. Drink plenty of fluids. If symptoms are progressively worsening, then you may be developing a bacterial throat or lower respiratory infection. You may need to see md rx. Read more...

Sore throat, headache, fatigue, & malaise x3 wks. Sore throat has lingered for 4-4.5 wks. No fevers. Neg throat culture & mono test. Causes?

Posibilities. My first thought would focus on the nasal airway. If you have allergies/irritants/sinus swelling that narrows the nasal airway your mouth breathing during sleep will cause a sore throat. This can be aggravated in an environment like a heated house, because low humidity adds to the problem. A humidifier and generous use of nasal saline may give you some relief. Read more...

Follow up with Doc. Follow up with your PCM if you are not improving, particularly if you are running a fever or if your cough is getting worse. Rapid Strep tests are helpful diagnostic tools, but are often falsely negative. A Strep culture is more reliable, but takes 3-4 days for results. Bottom line, if you are feeling worse, your Physician will want to know. Read more...

Time to rest. This sounds like a viral syndrome. Motrin and Tylenol (acetaminophen) can help with chills and aches. Zinc lozenges or sprays help shorten the length of the symptoms. Warm fluids soothe the throat. Extra Vit C (1000 mg twice a day) will also decrease the length of time you'll have symptoms. Rest and sleep extra to give your body a chance to fight off the virus.
