Sore throat, headaches, swollen glands, tiredness. What can be done?

Hi there, My 13 year old daughter has had a sore throat & headache for over 4 weeks. I have just walked in the door from the Dr and he was a complete idiot. She has no fever but her glands are swollen. She seems to have a headache constantly and is very tired. Is it worth me taking her to get another opinion as they all say her throat doesn t seem that bad? I m starting to wonder if hormones can play a part in this? Thank you

Pediatrician 's  Response
Prolonged sore throat, headache, tiredness along with neck glands in your daughter seem to indicate possibilities of glandular fever, toxoplasmosis or cytomegalovirus infection. Talk to your pediatrician regarding tests to rule out or confirm these conditions . Homones are unlikely to play any part in sore throat.
Hope you can now reach a diagnosis.
