I have had mononucleosis for 6 weeks. I have been recovering for three weeks. Lately I have been feeling much better. For the past two days, I have been out doing christmas shopping with my mom, noticing that I feel better when I am out in the world and moving around. However, yesterday I think I overdid it.
Today I feel achey and tired, and my eyes are a little puffy.
Am I relapsing or was it too soon to move around much yet? I am really scared. I just want to get better.
Am I having a mono relapse? Help?

krc90, you are gonna feel tired and weak for a while, probably several months. Are you running a fever again? Usually relapses are not as bad as the original illness. Hopefully you just pushed too hard and your body is just feeling it. Listen to your body, when you feel tired rest!! Be sure to just take it easy today and drink plenty of fluids-juices, clear soups, water, Gatoraid etc. Take a multivitamin and maybe a couple ibuprofen and it should help.
