I might have Mononucleosis or Strep Throat
    #3383824 - 11/19/04 01:14 PM (12 years, 8 months ago)

i had a little bit of a cold onset feeling last week monday. My throat was feeling a little scratchy like before it does when you get a cold. It was sore for a few days but really no big deal. About two or three days passed where i didn't have a sore throat then after a night of very minimal hookah smoking i felt a sore throat at the top of only one side of my throat. It initially wasn't too bad and only isolated to that area. it felt like there was a piece of food or something right behind my throat on that same painful side that i couldn't get out. i was hawking like a maddman to ride that piece of something but i finally realized it must not be food.

hear i am, almost a week after that second sore throat attack and there are no signs of it getting any better, it actually seems to be spreading a little to the bottom back of my throat.

i looked up mononucleosis and strep throat but my only symptom for any of them is a prolonged sore throat. i don't have a fever or anything else. I did think i was getting fatigued but i realized that was actually because i've been doing the most schoolwork i've had this year in the past week.

i think it could be mono because i have been sharing glasses, cigarettes, kissing girls...ay...in the past 4-7 weeks (that's the gestation period for mono). anyways, if you've ever had mono, what do you think? do i have it? i'm going to go to a doctor when i fly home for thanksgiving if there are no signs of improvement.

I had mono once and the fatigue was how I knew I was really sick. Mono was more of an all over shitty feeling and I was exhausted for no reason - got shitfaced off a couple of beers one night & figured something was way off. I've had strep a couple times and some nasty throat infections/tonsilitis and those seemed to be more localized in my throat, if that makes any sense. I'd say if it's only in your throat, it's probably strep, but I sure as hell am no doctor.

either way i'd go in to get antibiotics for strep or if it's mono i forget if you have to take pills. i havent had mono in a long time. used to get strep a lot as a kid. they both suck.

Well, with the sore throat at the top, that's what I thought , but when i had mono, i slept like for two weeks, just sleep. With strep, yeah, deffinately a fever.

If you have mono you will feel sleepy and weak.You would probable be better off going to the Dr. if you have insurance.If you don't have insurance get lots of bed rest,take vitamins and drink plenty of fluids.I'm not a Dr. and probably don't know what I'm talking about.So do what you feel is best.Your health is worth more than a doctors bill.

Sounds like a cold or minor infection.  Your doctor would most likely tell you to wait another 5-10 days and see what happens depending on if you have a fever or not.

Usually when you can feel it moving down your throat and slowly progressing like that, its just a cold\flu\minor infection.  If it persists for another week or so, I would schedule a brief appointment with a doctor.  Hope you feel better. :smile:

Your typically gonna run a higher temperature with Mono. Sounds like you may have an upper-respiratory infection. Although swolen glands "lymph nodes", are a sign of mono... or an infection like what was said above ^

Shite a flashlight down your throat and look for white spots on your tonsils/back of throat. I had the exact same symptoms as you but my tonsils were covered in white spots. Got some antibiotics from the doc but they didn't work and I just had to wait another week for it to go away. He said it may have been antibiotic-resistant strep or something.

thanks for the advice everybody. i think its finally slowly going away, and i'm not super tired or anything so i think i'm gonna be cool. shite, that was a major scare though. i can't afford to get mono right now.

hmmm, still there...and really bad in the mornings. its moved the other side and has almost left the initial side. i'm thinking tonsilitis maybe cause i have no other symptoms of strep or mono. grrr, i guess i'll see the doc.

i had mono and strep throat at the same time...so painfull. your body wants sleep but the pain in your throat wont allow it.

the doc will give you anti-biotics for the strep, no pill cures mono, your just stuck with that for a few weeks.

Are you a carrot, an egg, or a coffee bean?
