Well, I thought it was just a nasty case of jetlag that wouldn't go away. My sleep schedule was way off ever since returning from China, and as the week progressed, my sinuses were starting to act up.
Sure enough, one morning, I woke up with glands stretching from NJ to Delaware, incredible incredible pain and the doctor without hesitating said, "It's mono. Be glad this didn't surface last week while you were in China!"
So now, I am starting Day 3 of a 6 day steroid treatment. I am on (a total crapload) of Advil, as well as the Steroids, which is called MethylPREDNIsolone. The symptoms seem worse at night, but I've been able to sleep from about 8pm - 7am which is okay I guess.
One thing is for sure, though-- it's no fun to have mono! I've heard the sore throat (and most symptoms) go away quickly. I'm praying maybe tomorrow the pain will go away. I can deal with sinus pressure, but a sore throat and swollen glands is just no party!
And all of this while ExpressJet is trying to schedule me for an immediate interview!
What are your mono stories? Any weird cases? I know for me, my case has been slightly odd because the steroids are not making me hungry (I have no appetite) and I have no fever whatsoever.
Since we don't want to share germs, let's share stories!
