Hi, I am a collegiate runner and have had mono for over a year now. At the start of a new season I was hoping I could run but my symptoms seem to keep coming back. I have good days and bad days. My main symptom is chronic fatigue where I can't even focus in class, I get dizzy when I stand up, see black spots, have sores in my mouth, run a fever, frequently feel nauseous and sometimes vomit, can't concentrate and am sometimes confused, have enlarged spleen, have muscle spasms in my left thigh, and always have an ill feeling. I just tested negative for mono and the doctors say this can't be mono anymore. They ran many tests where I tested positive on the ANA test and have many abnormalities but say the results aren't high enough to be critical. Just wondering if anyone else is in this case. I have lost a year of my life and feel this is critical. Please Help!

Karate chick, sorry you didn't get a response here, this particular forum isn't very active.

You must feel pretty alone and worried. Those are some bothersome symptoms - I am sure you really want some answers. It is really important to be your own health advocate. You have to keep looking for answers.

It is not enough that your doctor ran some tests and tell you what it's not -- you still have debilitating symptoms. So you can insist on your doctor looking further into this or ask him to send you to someone who is willing to help you.

Good luck!

Thank you for your reply! It's good to see that people actually do care. I am so sick of doctors and it seems like I always get the ones that don't care. My mom and I take time almost every night to research my symptoms and it seems like that is how we get most of our answers. Thanks! We'll keep looking.
