I cannot believe he gave me a sorethroat!!!!!
Mononucleosis is a viral infection causing fevers, sore throat, and swollen lymph glands, especially in the neck. It is typically caused by the Epstein-Barr virus (EBV). Mononucleosis is often transmitted by saliva. While it is known as "the kissing disease," mono may begin slowly with fatigue, malaise, headache, and sore throat. The sore throat becomes progressively worse, often with enlarged tonsils covered with a whitish-yellow covering. The lymph nodes in the neck are frequently enlarged and painful. The symptoms of mono gradually subside on their own over a period of weeks to months.
Mononucleosis occurs most often in 15- to 17-year-olds. <-- So now what, is this article trying to make me feel like we are teenagers jumping on each other at every chance!?
I mean, seriously!!!!!!!
