I'm 18 years old! i have constant swollen glands, and always feel fluish! always very tired and alot of the time have a fever! this has been occuring for the last few years! the Doctor told me i had glandular fever and that it takes years to get rid of it from my system! but when i read up on glandular fever he did everything wrong e.g suppopsedly you should not take antibiotics especially not amoycillin which he always prescribes for me! Ive even had blood tests for glandular fever and i was told i didnt have it but a few weeks later when i went back to the doctor he just gave me the same antibiotics told me it was glandular fever and sent me home! I really cant take feeling like this all the time any longer! If anybody out there can help me i would really apperciate it!

  • I would try a different doctor. You are quite right that his diagnosis and treatment are not consistent. Some doctors dole out antibiotics for anything and this sounds like one of them.

Good luck
