What is the cause of Mono prolonging for over one year ?

My daughter is 17 and was diagnosed with active mono one year ago this month. She hasn t been the same since. SHe is still fatigued and doesn t have the same amount of energy. Her performance in sports has also declined. In October I requested some bloodwork from my doctor an OBGYN ) since the pediatrician never thinks theres anything wrong with my kids. I requested tests for T3 since I m low in free T3 and so is my other daughter who is 18. The results indicted low free T3 and low TSH . The doctor said the TSH is typically high in the case in low T3 so she wanted to recheck in 2 months. In the meantime I was giving my daughter liquid iodine drops. When she was retested in mid December the doctor also tested her mono again. Her T3 and TSH were even lower and she still had mono (she s had it for 10 months as of that bloodwork!). Her IGM was still positive and her IGG was also positive which the doctor said was a sign that she was starting to recouperate. The doctor tested her bloodwork again just 10 days ago (one year anniversary of being diagnosed with mono!) and she said that my daughters iron stores were very low (only 7 when they should be 20!) She said her Ferritan was in the normal range but she wanted to look closer to see if she had low iron. I m still waiting on the mono test and a few other things since they take longer. What is going on? How do I help my child to recover and feel better? I didn t think you could have mono for more than a year. Any help you can offer is appreciated.

Welcome to health care magic forum,

once patient is having mononeuclosis, the patient carries the virus for the rest of his or her life. The virus typically lives dormant in B lymphocytes. Periodically, the virus can reactivate, during which time the patient is again infectious, but usually without any symptoms of illness.

Researches show that thyroid problems are directly related with mental and emotional factors.

Mostly when there is some disturbances at level of mental or emotional level like shock, grief, stress, tension, anxiety, disappointment etc. will affect to physical level at various way and mostly affect to metabolism, hormones and/or neurological level.

Homeopathic medicine is selected with consideration of physical complain with emotional and mental factor.

Hence, it is most curative in these type of chronic diseases.

So consult good classical homeopath. You will surely get benefit with homeopathy.
