I got very sick Dec. 2016 and was diagnosed with mono a month later. Ever since then, even though I am not as sick as I was, I have had a low grade fever all year, swollen lymph nodes, and overwhelming fatigue. I had to quit my job because I felt like my brain fog/ tiredness was interfering. When I go to the doctor they say there's nothing they can do for me.

I am constantly achy, get ear/nose infections often, struggle to concentrate, and just overall feel gross. When I research my symptoms, a lot of things come up about cfs, lyme, lupus, etc, but I am still at a loss. I am a different person then I was last year because i literally have NO ENERGY ALL THE TIME. Anyone else experience something similar? Help!

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Get evaluated for any underlying organic illness. Otherwise CFS, depression and dysthymia fits. Supportive care, low doses of tricyclic antidepressants help.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
