Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 7 years ago.
Thank you for the information,

After an attack of viral infection, general weakness or post viral syndrome may last for long time, even months.

As all the blood tests are normal, glands are reducing in size, it should not be worrying.

Still, if you really feel very unwell, reevaluation by doctor would be considered.

I hope this information will be helpful.

Please ask if you need any clarification.

Best wishes.

night/day sweats bot no oral temp. 36.80 is this normal. should i continue with paracetamol, rest when tired feeling unwell or push myself?
Expert:  Dr. Saha replied 7 years ago.
Do not take frequently paracetamol if not needed urgently.

It can give sweating.

Take plenty of liquid, fresh fruits and vegetables.

Vitamin supplement can be taken.

Better to take a repeat appointment with doctor to exclude any other pathology.
