I thought I injured my neck and back last December. The pain was odd and the muscles in my shoulders and upper back became so stiff it hurt to just barely touch them. The chiropractor didn't help and everyone toldme ntohing was wrong in their tests (although everyone was shocked at the stiffness). Over time I began to get anxiety attacks worrying about why I went from feeling great all of the time to suddenly feeling constantly achey and tired. By summer I began getting migraine headaches, fatigue, ringing in my ears, swollen tonsils and a sore throat. I tested positive for the Epstein-Barr virus and was diagnosed with mononucleousis. It has now been an entire year of these unbearable off and on symptoms. Is it possible to have mono this long? I just want it to go away. I am the healthiest person I know as far as diet, exercise and sleep so I don't know what more I can do to heal myself???
