    Has anyone ever had this? It's possible that I might, but I'm not sure. What are the symptoms? I know I could look them up online but I'd prefer input from people who'd actually had it.

    I had it and its a rotten illness.
    One day you feel fine, the next you can barely get out of bed.
    If you have it expect chronic fatigue.

    Thanks to severe anaemia and depression I have that anyway. There's something wrong with all the glands in my neck and along my jaw but I have no bloody idea what.

    Could be thyroid problems also..You really should see a doctor and have some blood work done. Better to know for sure before it gets worst...

    I used to get that problem a lot... could just be a minor infection, some antibiotics should clear it up quite easily, but you should really go to the dr. if it's swollen.

    Hi Fee, hope you are ok. Does sound like you should get it checked out by your GP. Get well soon and then we can meet up here in sunny Salford.:hug:

    From my experience having it, specific symptoms might include: sore throat, unfightable fatigue (sleep all the time without feeling refreshed in the least), possible weakness (I passed out twice), general aches and malaise/flu-like feeling, headache, swollen glands (everywhere), fever (usually low, but might spike over 102°F), maybe a rash, probably a swollen spleen (which might make your tummy a bit tender). Can run from about 2 weeks to a few months, with the chronic fatigue sometimes lasting quite a bit longer.

    I hope it's just a minor infection. Maybe time for a complete physical? :hug:
