Mononucleosis

Symptoms of mononucleosis

Mononucleosis is a highly contagious disease. Known as the "kissing disease" mono is spread through direct contact with others. Stay away from others who have the disease if possible, don't share items like makeup, toothbrushes and eating utensils. Wash your hands frequently throughout the day and take regular baths to help prevent catching this disease. Once you catch this virus, it takes four to six weeks to beat it if you have a normal immune system.

Symptoms

Symptoms may include palpitations or rapid heartbeat, jaundice, pain in the upper left quadrant of the abdomen, muscle aches, throbbing joints, exhaustion, headache, fever, sore throat, tonsillitis or swollen lymph glands, lack of appetite and bloated liver.

Causes

Mononucleosis is caused by the Epstein-Barr virus and is passed from person to person through direct contact. Sneezing, coughing, sharing utensils, straws or lip gloss and kissing and other forms of intimate contact can all spread this virus. This illness affects the liver, mouth and lymph nodes.

Cautions

It is a good idea to see a physician if you suspect you have mononucleosis. If you have a cold for longer than two weeks, it may be mono. Try to limit your contact with others until you are well.
