Mononucleosis Test

Mononucleosis or mono is a viral illness caused by a virus known as the Epstein-Barr virus. In general, symptoms will be more severe in adulthood and adolescence. Some of the most common symptoms include fatigue, sore throat, and swollen glands, this could be a sign of mono. These symptoms can also be associated with cold and flu; however, if symptoms become severe and the fatigue doesn’t seem to stop getting tested for mononucleosis will be helpful in managing your treatment.

What Will the Test Look at?

First, when diagnosing mono, the physician will want to do a thorough examination of your throat in order to rule out other conditions such as strep throat. To be sure that what you’re experiencing is mono, our physician will order a blood test to look for any abnormalities in your white blood cells. If you do in fact have mono, it will be important for you to follow the treatment plan designed for you by our doctors since there are some more dangerous complications that can occur such as an enlarged spleen.

Recovery from Mono

A best-case scenario is that you’ll start feeling better with two weeks. However, it is important to note the symptoms of fatigue can take even longer to subside; approximately three to four weeks. Since this is a viral condition, there is no treatment other than rest. Resting your body will give you and your immune system the strength it needs to fight off the virus.

“I rarely ever leave ratings of places, and don't think I've ever commented on one, if I have I don't remember doing so but this place is AMAZING!! I was in and out so fast. ALL of the staff was so nice and so efficient. The rooms are clean and the waiting room is so nice and clean and cute. They even have a coffee machine with options if hot chocolate, hot tea, coffee and even chicken broth which I thought was just so thoughtful!! I won't go anywhere else if I need an urgent care center!!”

“I don’t usually like going to any urgent care because of my bad experience BUT I love this Location. The staffs and the doctor are very nice and very friendly. One of the female nurses name Carrie. She is my favorite because she was nice and gentle when she was care for me. She also did my first Covid on my first visit there months ago. Thank You!!”
