I got Tested positive with mono 2 weeks ago. I still have body aches and fatigue, swollen lymph nodes. Thats about it. I also did a blood test for liver functions and My ALT was at 900, normal range being 50. My doc said thats nothing to worry about since other tests were normal, its the mono causing this. Has anyone ever experienced this?
also i have bad joint aches is this cause of mono? how long will the lymphnodes be swollen? it seems to be not going away.
Yes mono is known to be causing hepatitis. I also had elevated ALT but to 100. Your liver enzymes should return to normal levels in 1-4 months. Remember not to drink any alohol for one year after mono, also do not eat any fried food that might be hard on your liver. Mono may give you tons of strange symptoms and it takes long time to recover from it.
Your liver is infected so it's normal that you have all those symptoms. Go to your doc and tell him to give you some pills for this bloating and reflux. Liver infection is very common with mono, that's why doctor told you not to worry.
I was diagnosed on Monday and was told the same thing: high liver enzymes. The doctor didn't give me any more information besides that. This thread is really helping me: Apparently I cannot drink for a year? Is this true? Can someone tell me the consequences and what exactly that means?
I just started getting a sore throat yesterday... I'm hoping it doesn't turn out as badly as the ones I read about on the other threads.
