> I've read here or somewhere else there is something called "post-viral syndrome". Has anyone here had mono, then a reocurrence, or know about this syndrome? Can allergies alone cause this tiredness?

Hi Garnet, I suffered with panic attacks from age 15, depression was never an issue nor is there family history, just anxiety/panic within the family tree.

When I was 28, I came down with mono.... my life has never been the same? It took about 3 months to recover although I experienced fatigue constantly. I was an avid golfer, tennis player and played rec. hockey. One year post mono and I was still chronically fatigued, I could not last through a 12 shift in the oil refinery, depression began to set in.

My GP had blood tests done to see if there was an underlying cause for the chronic fatigue. One of the tests came back showing elevated Epstein Barr antibodies which is indicative of "yuppie syndrome??

My GP said it could take months or years to recover, 22 years have past and I still fight the chronic fatigue. I can't say for sure that mono was the cause, or, if it was a contributing factor that sent me into depression/chronic fatigue?

I've always felt it was a major player with regards to my clinical depression. I should also mention I was taking a 2 month course of accutane when I came down with the mono, another drug that is linked to depression.

A healthy lifestyle.... diet, exersice and sleep is crucial when recovering from mono. I hope your son makes a speedy and full recovery.

Regards, Rick
