Can you get really sick from Mono?

Tags: , 8 Comments

Yes. Mononucleosis is a viral infection causing fever, sore throat, and swollen lymph glands, especially in the neck. Mono may begin slowly with fatigue, a general ill feeling, headache, and sore throat. The sore throat slowly gets worse. Your tonsils become swollen and develop a whitish-yellow covering. The lymph nodes in the neck are frequently swollen and painful. Any comments?

    Almost everyone carries the virus that causes mononucleosis (its acutally a type of herpes virus). Most people never get sick from the virus and dont have any sypmtoms of being infected. It might be possible to get the disease from someone who is not sick or has never been sick with mono. We really dont know. Most people get mono from someone who had the disease (and symptoms of the disease) recently. You contract mono by sharing saliva with some whos infections (kissing or sharing drinks usually).The incubation time for mono is 4-7 weeks. That means you dont get sick untill 4-7 weeks after being exposed to mono. If you made out with your neigbhor recently (less than 4 weeks ago) it couldnt be from him/her.If you think you have mono, you should go to the doctor. There is a really easy test that can tell you if you have the disease or not. Its called the monospot test – super easy.Hope you feel better.JW
