Hi, I'm a 15 year old girl with some issues.
I've been having sharp pains on the left side of my stomach, I've been dizzy, weak, tired, and been having random heat flashes. I've been ignoring the symptoms until today when I was sitting down at lunch and I looked at my friend. He seemed to drift off to the left and split in two. A sharp pain erupted in my stomach for a minute and went away. My appetites been fine and my bowel movements are fine. The stomach pain seems to come from underneath my ribs and I can't sit comfortably without feeling like they're rubbing on something. I recently had mononucleosis a month ago. Could it be from that?
I would be pleased to find some answers to my issues.
Thanks. :D

  • I don't know if "had mono" is a valid statement. Frankly I don't know many people who have recovered from mono in such a short time. You likely are still feeling its effects. Yes, spleen enlargement is common in mono and is more than likely the source of your pain. Mono varies for a lot of people. Some suffer from delirium bordering on hallucinations and some people I've known have only fatigue and muscle weakness issues. Mono can last a very long time, so just eat healthy, sleep well and eventually it will pass.
