Hi, my blood test just came back and showed that I am positive for Mono. But the only thing that is weird to me is that I have absolutely no fatigue or fever. I am actually sort of high energy (I was playing DDR until I found out it was probably in my best interest to not) and my current temperature is even a little lower than 98.6. My only symptom is a horrible sore throat.

I definitely am glad that I have no fatigue or fever, but I'm wonder why? Any insight?

A blood test can show if you have mono...and even then, all of the symptoms might NOT be present. Consider yourself lucky! But beware, also. You may feel tired for a few months after the diagnosis. Just keep an eye out and be sure to get lots of rest.

I had the exact same thing happen to me. I had only a small amount of fatigue but i was working two jobs. The only reason I went to the doctor was because my family noticed how swollen my neck looked from my lymph nodes. If you over do it you can get the more extreme symptoms so like rooted said, take it easy for a little while to be on the same side.
