I have mononucleosis, is it normal to experience tingling sensation in feets and arms, joint pain, muscle twitching, heavy feeling? I felt sick as a dog for 10 days, then mono Simptoms went away for a week and a half, after that (now) I am experiencing tingling in all my body (needles and pins sensation), but most of it on feet, joint pain and back pain, heavy hands and feet? I am scared is it normal? Does anyone had this with mono? Did it went away at all? How long did it take?

Mono - Similar Issue
Hi Flor86,

I have had the pleasure of having mono for the past 6 months and can relate entirely. I also had/occasionally have tingling in hands and feet, mainly feet. Almost feels like it is starting to go to sleep. Apparently it is just a weird mono symptom that some people get, as I have read other posts on this site involving people with the exact same issue. I have had tonnes of weird symptoms though, all part of the experience I guess!

Warmest Regards and a speedy recovery!

Hi, thanks for the reply. Did you experienced muscle twitch all over? I hate mono. How old are you?

No worries! Yeah sure did experience muscle twitching! Still do occasionally, in all different places but primarily in the forearms, calves, and hands. I put that down to muscle fatigue and gradual recovery that comes with mono. I read other posts on this site with plenty of other mono people having the same issues!

I am a 19 year old male, and definitely agree with you on the hating mono! The whole process has been really annoying, turned me into a complete hypochondriac; I am getting heaps better with that though, helps that many, many people report experiencing similar issues.

These are two brilliant posts that I occasionally read to put my mind at ease regarding tingling:

Look forward to hearing back from you, feel free to send me a private message if that would be more convenient.

Warm Regards! Smile

I am a 19 female and I have had mono only 3 months so far. It has been hell. I've had severe twitching and still can't really walk around. I feel like Im going to pass out if I try and walk too far. I had to leave college.I started physical therapy. I am improving but Im scared Ill never be back to normal.

How are you doing? I figure it would be helpful to talk to you since you are the same age and we've had some of the same lovely symptoms. I hope to talk soon!

Hey timeheals8, I fully understand where you are coming from and will have to agree fully with your username, as in the case of mono, time is definitely a huge factor.

I first got mono in April of this year, and by the end of October I was pretty much back to my old self. So in about six months I was through the worst and only experience residual symptoms every now and then when run-down, stressed,etc.

I know exactly how you feel regarding the recovery process, as I had pretty much forgotten how it was to be well, I guess that's how annoying mono is!

Anyway hope this helps, feel free to send me a private message and we can continue sharing our wonderful stories of this excellent time of our lives Very Happy

Warm regards and a speedy recovery!
