Re: Would this concern you?

Yes it would concern me. My daughter is hyperactive at her age so if I find something unusual about her behavior (being lethargic) lately, I am going to have her checked up.

I'd probably take her in too. It does sound like Mono would be a possibility. Hoping it is nothing. Keep us updated. to both of you.

I googled mono and she does not have a fever, no sore throat, no swollen glands...just the fatigue. And it looks like doctors don't do anything for mono anyway, right?

Today her activity level has been a little better, but she was coughing all morning, so maybe she does just have a bug. I have a call in to her ped. to see if they want me to bring her in.

I forgot about those symptoms for Mono. Maybe she is fighting the flu virus or something. We had it. It really made me super tired for a couple days before I really started getting symptoms. When the other symptoms started it suddenly made sense why I was so droopy. I hope she gets better very soon whatever it is.

Re: Would this concern you?

When I had mono as a teenager, I had to have periodic blood draws to monitor liver function since it can damage the liver. I haven't heard any personal stories of someone who has had liver damage from mono but I know it happens.

If it was mono though she should have had some exposure. Maybe she shared a drink with someone?

it gave me a huge spleen, I couldn't work out, had to be super careful as it could burst.

She stopped coughing completely after that one morning. Her energy level was a little bit better this weekend, though she ASKED me to go to bed about 30 minutes early yesterday and today. Ped's office was not helpful, they just said "bring her in if you think you need to". With all the flu around, I really really REALLY don't want to take her as a walk-in at the sick clinic.

So, I guess I'm just keeping an eye on her for now!
