UGH!! I am thinking I have mono (mononucleosis). I am in my 30s but I work at a University and come in contact with students a lot. And yes, we have had the kind of stress this year that could cause my body to come down with this.<br><br>
Anyway, I have had a low grade fever for 4+ days. And the lymph nodes in my neck especially on one side are very swollen and sore. It hurts to swollow because of what feel like swollen things in my neck.<br><br>
I still have my appetite. However, with the amount that my toddler nurses, I think that I would have to be on my deathbed to lose my appetite <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"><br><br>
Does this sound like mono? And how much SA should I take? My husband read that this is a "200 g SA" disease. Yicks! Thats a lot! Are there other suppliments I should take?<br><br>
Thanks!!!<br><br>

Poor you, it sounds like it. Mono does require a great deal of SA. Have you read this:<br><br><a href="http://www.orthomed.com/titrate.htm" target="_blank">http://www.orthomed.com/titrate.htm</a><br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

<table border="0" cellpadding="6" cellspacing="0" width="99%"><tr><td class="alt2" style="border:1px inset;">MONONUCLEOSIS<br><br>
Acute mononucleosis is a good example because there is such an obvious difference between the course of the disease, with and without ascorbate. Also, it is possible to obtain laboratory diagnosis to verify that it is mononucleosis being treated. Early in this study a 23-year-old, 98-pound librarian with severe mononucleosis claimed to have taken 2 heaping tablespoons every 2 hours, consuming a full pound of ascorbic acid in 2 days. She felt mostly well in 3 to 4 days, although she had to continue about 20 to 30 grams a day for about 2 months.<br><br>
Many cases do not require maintenance doses for more than 2 to 3 weeks. The duration of need can be sensed by the patient. I had ski patrol patients back skiing on the slopes in a week. They were instructed to carry their boda bags full of ascorbic acid solution as they skied. The ascorbate kept the disease symptoms almost completely suppressed even if the basic infection had not completely resolved. The lymph nodes and spleen returned to normal rapidly and the profound malaise was relieved in a few days. It is emphasized that tolerance doses must be maintained until the patient senses he is completely well, or the symptoms will recur.</td>

I would also take large doses of vitamin A, in the form of high vitamin cod liver oil. Best brands are Blue Ice from greenpasture.org, Dr Rons and the one sold by Radiant Life. The links to which are in this link, Vitamin A Dosage: <a href="http://www.westonaprice.org/basicnutrition/clarifications.html" target="_blank">http://www.westonaprice.org/basicnut...fications.html</a><br><br>
I hope you get well soon, I had mono twice in my early twenties, and I can't imagine having it and having to care for a toddler.

What is SA?<br><br>
I had mono in Grade 10 and for years I felt as if I was once plugged in and had been unplugged from my energy source. It was a never-ending tired feeling!<br><br>
It wasn't until a few months after taking noni daily that my energy level was brought up to normal.<br><br>
Wow!!! How great for you to have kicked it in a matter of days!!! Wow!!!
