Enlarged spleen, have stinging pain, feel full, belching. What to do?

I am a generally healthy 44 yr old female. A year ago I had the symptoms of mono (my daughter had it and our water glasses got mixed up). It took me about 3 months to get over it and I've had recurring bouts of it, to a lesser degree, 2 or 3 times in the following year. Now, my spleen seems to be enlarged; it has a stinging pain, I feel full even when I don't eat, and I have belching which is highly unusual for me. What do I do?

Hi there ~

I understand your concerns. An enlarged spleen is not a cause of concern unless you are living in an area that is endemic to malarial or other contagious infection. I do not believe that if the mononucleosis was the reason, it will last for a very long time. I also think that you have a history of gastritis that is making you feel full with little meals and belch often. I hope you get treated with a GI specialist. A visit with an infectious disease doctor would also help.

I hope this helped and I wish you the very best. Take care!
