I have mono and high elevated liver function

User Profile
5 days ago I went to the doctor, had a blood test and it came back confirming that I have mono and high elevated liver function. Everyone is saying that to get better I need sleep, however the last 3 days i have only had about 5 hours total of sleep. At this point my tonsils are so large that I have trouble breathing, I also have a severe blocked nose which is causing mucus to hang around in my throat blocking what's left of my throat, so breathing is incredible hard right now. I also have a severe dry mouth making breathing and swallowing extremely painful, and because of all this it takes a lot for me to get to sleep and once I do fall asleep I will wake up an hour later in extreme pain in my throat. I am going back to the doctor in 5 days for another blood test to check on my liver but there's nothing she can do for my throat, I've been drinking nothing but water and drowning in pain killers that dont work and I don't know what else to do, I'm so tired and don't want chronic fatigue
