I've had it for 3 weeks and now don't get the chills or fever, just very sore throat and white abcesses in my mouth. I know this is relatively early for some cases, I just wonder what progression of symptoms is normal (e.g. first fever goes away, than throat problems leaving fatigue? .. if so usually how long)?

As for me, right now I have the sore throat and light headedness. I've been taking Valtrex for 5 days (2 more to go) and have been just getting fluids and resting as much as possible. Only real outward symptom is the white pus on throat (not tonsills) and lymph nodes getting swollen at throat.
