Has anybody else had it? Got it? Know about it?
I just been diagnosed with it though they are veriying it with a blood test that they did today, which wouldn't really bother me...but I fainted which was weird?
My doctor hasn't told me anything about it, any words of wisdom from the forum?

Its very hard to make a diagnosis without the actual blood serum results. I remember having all the symptoms and more of glandular fever, and it coming back negative.

I wouldn't mind really, I'd rather have it now during my gap year than when I started Uni or during my A-Levels that really counted but it's the fact I've not been able to hold down food for days, today I ate a mince pie. This probably explains the faintnes after the blood was taken but I'm really scared of losing loads of weight really fast cuz that could really damage my body

Fainting would be owing to the low blood sugar level. Throwing up is not associated with glandular fever. As the guy above said, the main symptoms are tiredness and this often leads to depression. Im sure you all know the disease is caused by Epstein-Barr virus (a virus very related to herpes). so antibiotics dont help.
If you have got glandular fever, its likely you have something else too. Just make sure that if you're given antibiotics (you may have a secondary bacterial infection) that you dont get Ampicillin. From what I know of my virology (and i know a ****ing lot) it causes a bad reaction giving a bloody itchy rash.

i had 3 bad cases of acute tonsilitus which ive never had before in my life. after the third case they booked me in for a blood test because they feared that i may have glandular fever. the day after the blood test it came back positive. there is nothing they can give you because it is viral. ive taken a turn for the worst today with my spleen becoming overenlarged meaning i may have to go into hospital if i do not improve over the day. its going to get worse i know and im dreading those days but for the time being im livin as much as i can spending time with those that i can and counting the days that i will be put into hospital because i no 4 a fact that it ent gna get any better in a hurry

my friend has glandular fever, she gets really tired and just falls asleep all the time. She didnt come to school for 6 months, and shes lost a lot of weight and just generally looks really weak. She goes to the hospital every other day for tests. I feel really sorry for her.
