  • Did you take any meds for the mono? Did they give you an antibiotic?Do you have frequent bowel movements as well as loose? First thing to take would be a good probiotic to build up your intestinal flora. Acidopholus, bifidus, rhamnosus, etc...you can get at a health food store.

  • I have suffered with alot of pain throughout my life, until the last year or so I started having alot more morning stiffness, pain all over, increased headaches, and a burning sensation all over. I have had repeated sicknesses in the last five years and I even had a stroke two years ago, however I am only 34 years of age and I have been accused of being crazy, munchhausin you name it, but I always knew I was not crazy and I stuck to my guns. a psychaitrist never diagnosed me with these conditions either, I just could not find a doctor who was willing or had the ability to put everything together to come up with a proper diagnosis until I finally went to a rheumatologist. Now I have diagnosed with Rheumatiod Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Hyperthyroidism. Which is actually rare and because all my symtoms were ignored for so long I now have irreversable damage, I even had my colon removed. I still suffer everyday but inside I fel much better having a diagnosis because at least now I can start to treat what I can. So my advice to you would be to just not give up and rattle cages as loud as you can, because it is always better to be safe than sorry. Just listen to your body, remember you know how you feel more than anybody else can ever tell by looking at you, or by any blood test can reveal. Hope this can help you. another lil peace of advice prayer always helped me through as well.:p
