Customer Question

My daughter is 20 and had mono 2 years ago. She had a pretty good case, exhibited all the symptoms associated with it minus the sleeping part. She absolutely felt so bad she could not sleep. We saw our family Dr to confirm this. Eventually she got better but has never felt 100%. She is now showing the symptoms of mono again. She has days when she has lots of energy and days when she has no energy but is sleeping quite a bit. Swollen lymph nodes, sore throat once again. Does this sound like mono once again???

Yes, it is rare, but one can get mono twice.

Very unusual but possible.

However, she needs to see her doctor right away, make sure this is what it is, or if it is something else.

It might be a post viral syndrome, which is controversial, but many people have symptoms of never well since having mono.

Chronic fatigue, thyroid and other problems need to be ruled out.
