Has anyone had mononucleosis twice – the second time as an adult? If so, for how long did you feel sick? What did you take, if anything, to lessen your symptoms?
I didn’t think it was possible. I am 45 and had mono at age 14; my doctor told me last week I have mono. He said it is rare to get it twice but if the immune system is really rundown it is possible. My immune system seems to be non-existent. I’ve been sick for about a year with one thing or another. It started early last May when we all had, what I believe was H1N1 – we didn’t go to the doctor. Since then I have had one illness after another –colds, bronchitis, non-stop coughs, pink eye, recurring sinus infections, etc. The doctor said this round of mono will be less severe than the mono I had as a child. It doesn’t feel less severe…but it could be because I am also fighting a sinus infection and have had horrible headaches.
