I have a question....I have had Lyme now for 15 years....been treated now for the past daughter has gotten Mono...I had it when I was in the 7th grade....but I'm having the same symptoms she is having....tired..(of course that could be lyme)...but I've had a fever now for 10 days....she's had one for 18 days....sore throat...that kind of it possble to get Mono again..or could this just be a Lyme thing? Has anyone ever experienced this?

my NON-MEDICAL opinion is YES! mono is contagious.

it was mono 37 yrs. ago that began my chronic lyme. [Frown] [cussing]

They used to say you could only get it once, but my mother got it several times. We didn't know it was really Lyme back then.

I would highly suspect LYME in your daughter. If it is truly mono, then it could have triggered your lyme to become active again.

hope you both feel better soon!

I believe the same for myself....except it was 39 yrs ago. [a RE-triggering of the lyme]
