I've bee feeling kind of crummy with a sore throat, so I haven't been exercising much. We were out of town as well so even if I had been feeling great I was seriously out of my routine for a couple of days. My doctor wanted to rule out mono before he prescribed a second antibiotic for me. My brother had mono at age 37 and it laid him up for nearly six months. Blah! Not an option for a single mom. The symptoms I described over the phone DID sound eerily like mono: sore throat, swollen glands, lethargy, no fever.
Blood was drawn, tests were run and thank God I am negative for mono. I believe I am positive for a sinus infection that was misdiagnosed originally. Never mind that I told the doctor I thought it was a sinus infection! When I have strep throat I get really sick. I wasn't really sick this time--this is how I feel when I have a sinus infection. Don't listen to me, I am only the frickin' patient!
So one dose is on board. I was feeling better today anyway. I exercised a bit this morning, but didn't do the whole routine. Just had to convince myself I didn't have mono!
