"Dawn Drewes was absolutely amazing. This was my first telehealth visit ever and I felt I got the same level of care I would get in person. Good health providers can be difficult to find and Dawn Drewes is one of the good ones. Her personality really puts you at ease and she communicates beautifully. Everything we discussed was clear and concise but she is open to any questions you have if need be. I will be a loyal patient going forward."

    About Mono

    Back to the top

    Mononucleosis - commonly known as mono - is a viral illness caused by the Epstein-Barr virus. Mono is called “the kissing disease” because it is easily transmittable through saliva or bodily fluids, and may also be transmitted through sharing eating utensils or drinking out of the same glass as someone who is infected with the disease.

    Common symptoms of mono include:
    • Fatigue
    • Fever
    • Headaches
    • Body aches
    • Sore throat
    • Swollen lymph nodes
    • Skin rash
    • Swollen spleen

    The fever and sore throat symptoms that commonly occur with mono will usually go away within a week, but the fatigue and swollen lymph nodes may last for several weeks to a month. The EBV virus will remain in the body after the illness has ended, but it is very rare for mononucleosis to recur. Many people will be infected by the EBV virus but will show no symptoms; in fact, only 1 in 4 teenagers or young adults who are exposed to the EBV virus will show symptoms. Nearly 90% of Americans will have been exposed to the virus by the age of 35 and will have built up the antibodies to fight off any re-emergence of the illness.

    Mono is a very common illness and contagious. While most instances of the illness are mild and go away over time, untreated mononucleosis can lead to complications.

    Complications of mono include:
    • Spleen enlargement and spleen rupture
    • Liver inflammation
    • Jaundice
    • Anemia
    • Myocarditis (inflammation of the heart)
    • Meningitis

    The EBV virus can cause very serious medical conditions for individuals with weakened immune systems. Because of this, and the contagiousness of the illness, it is recommended that you speak to a health care provider as soon as you notice symptoms. Avoid social contact with others until you have received a diagnosis. If it is confirmed that you do have mono, avoid public spaces (such as work and school) until your symptoms have disappeared.
