I've been sick since before Thanksgiving. It started out with a swollen lymph node on my armpit and groin. I felt fatigued, chilled and fluey and had no appetite. But had no other symptoms. A week later I ran a fever for a few days. And have been feeling very fatigued ever since. My PCP said it was proabaly a virus. She's run some blood work ( CBC, liver panel, mono) and everything came back normal. The fatigue is so bad I can't even leave the house. But I felt like the virus part was over and I was just recovering slowly.

Now this morning I woke up with painful swollen lymph nodes under my arms. I 'm chilled and have that "fluey" feeling again. And feel like I'm getting a fever.

What kind of a virus can go on for 5 weeks with such vague symtoms?
