In Nov '04 I was diagnosed with mono using spot test.
In Feb '05 I was diagnosed with mono using titer
Doctor suggested depression because they have no idea what is wrong with me basically. I have been to six different doctors. All they get in bloodwork is elevated liver enzymes.
This no longer feels like mono. I am wondering if I could be getting a false positive for something more serious.
My symptoms include but are not limited to: totally random stabbing pain, vains pulsing out of the skin, and I am absolutely exhausted. My left side of my head always feels like its throbbing.
Edit: I work with paint thinner all summer and have constant phlegm. correlation? 18 yo male 5' 5" 130
Abdominal CT and MRI of brain were negative. Hepatitis negative.
I refused the advice of the doctor to go on antidepressant medication. I do not feel pain correlates with depression, and my home doctor concurs. He thinks its still mono.
For example last nite:
I start to lose control of my body right before I sleep, like last nite. Twitching and stuff. Ibuprofen makes it worse. who wouldn't have trouble diagnosing me? I'm a physicians nightmare?

Take a look at my post on April 18 in "other infections." I think I am having a problem very similar to yours. I am on antidepressants (Paxil) now and I believe that they are helping. Are you feeling very anxious, nervous, or upset about your ordeal?
