Hello.... help!

I need to rant (sorry) - 1st,i have been told i have glandulaer fever and im hurting from nose to toes, my throat is killing me, ive been sick, im tired 99.9% of the time, and the doctors said theres not a lot they can do! Also it can last for 2 years !

So, doesnt anyone have a cure for this? a magic pill or something?

    try echinacea. my ex had it, and it made him a lot stronger.

    it can last for 2 years, but more likely it'll be a few months... try not to imagine the worst.

    I was feeling lousy all day, but just been for a walk/jog and I feel a lot better. I would suggest it, but you arent supposed to exercise when you first get glandular fever I dont think. And later on you cant do group sports.

    I had Glandular Fever about 5 years ago, there aint much you can do to "cure" it. You just have to let it run it's course. I think it was about 14 months before I was 100% again :(

    Keep your chin up :)

    taken from http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/diseases/facts/glandularfever.htm

    "Glandular fever usually takes two to four weeks and resolves itself without complications. In about 3 per cent of all cases, it goes on longer. After having the disease, a person will have lifelong immunity to it, so will not catch it again.

    In rare cases, there are complications. Possible, but rare, complications are:
    • the respiratory passages may become partially blocked.
    • pneumonia.
    • the spleen may rupture - this happens in 0.1 to 0.2 per cent of all cases.
    • the central nervous system may be infected by the virus and can cause complications like meningitis or encephalitis.
    • anaemia.
    • the number of blood platelets may decrease (thrombocytopenia).
    • in rare cases, the disease may become serious and chronic."
