This is the story.
I'm a 22 year old female. Back in November I found a large patch of hair missing on top of my head, it resembles alopeica. My right tonsil had been swollen for about a year nearly to the middle of my throat, it hadn't been too bothersome so I figured it would go away. Since it had began swelling I was getting those little tonsil stones. I went to a general doctor, he referred me to a Ear Nose and Throat speicalist and then ran a full blood work on me to check Thyroid, Kidneys, liver, blood count, all of that stuff. Test results came back all normal.
I went to the ENT and he suspected Mono. They did the mono spot, a nurse called me and said, "You have mono." They put me on an antibiotic just in case and started me on a Medrol pack. I never had the general severe fatigue and body aches that are associated with mono. My son hasn't showed any symptoms neither has my boyfriend.
During each week of December I would experience a body temperature drop to 95 and then spike up to 103 the next day. I called the ENT and they had me start another antibiotic because they thought maybe it was just another infection. I had a follow-up visit with him and he told me that he didn't know for sure if it was mono and that I should try to find another family doctor that could try to pin point where an underlying infection might be.
I saw another doctor the next day she found a sinus infection, that the ENT missed. She had me stop the last round of antibiotics and begin a more broad antibiotic. She too sent me on my way saying it must be mono, nothing about my hair.
Week before last I was experiencing a huge out break of canker sores, I went to the dentist and they counted 13 total. He had me start another pack of Medrol.
Last week I was due for my monthly cycle. I spotted on Monday and then nothing. I don't know if it's because I'm pregnant now, the medication or something else that's underlying. The first round of Medrol didn't mess with me at all. I wouldn't have thought the second round 2 months later would have done much either. I'm always right on the dot for time. I don't know what to think or do. I went to a woman's health and tomorrow I'll find out from a blood test if I'm pregnant.
