My husband was recently diagnosed with Mono, he is 34 years old, and I am 32. My last boyfriend before my husband also got diagnosed with Mono, he was 28 at the time. I have had symptoms of Mono on and off for many years, but I've been tested a couple of times, and it always comes back negative.
After doing some research online, I'm starting to think that I may be a carrier of this virus. Perhaps I have Epstein-Barr, and have not yet been diagnosed. It seems too coincidental that in the last two of my adult relationships, the men tested positive for Mono. And with my history of symptoms. I often get swollen lymph nodes in my neck, with sore throat, and I am often very fatigued, especially during these episodes.
We were on our honeymoon when he started showing symptoms. And only days before that I was't feeling well and my glands got a little enflamed. Perhaps I only transmit the virus if I have a bit of a flare up or something? Do people who are carriers test negative for Mono?
Any input or information you can share with me will be greatly appreciated! Cheers.
You are probably both carriers. SUCKS. I am a carrier, and I have those exact symptoms. The "significant others" in your lives will probably want to get used to it, as you will be a carrier forever, and you can pass it on at any time.
