My 23-year-old daughter, who lives with me,has had mono with enlargement and pain in her spleen. Before that I'd never been sure where a spleen even was. Now I am having symptoms of mono: fatigue, joint pain, sore throat, and increasing pain in my left side under my ribs. I cannot believe I have mono since I had a severe case when I was in college 30 years ago.
Can you have mono a second time after so long a gap? Or can exposure to mono trigger the EB virus somehow so that you could have such symptoms without having mono again?
