During the last two weeks I have felt almost like I have had Chronic Fatigue. Ive never had it so I cant say for sure that its what its felt like but the tiredness ive felt over the last two weeks has been causing problems for me. I had mono about a year and a half ago and after I had mono I never felt like I had a problem. Im usually quite energized and got decent amounts of sleep. Every once in a while Id have a tired today which I think is quite usual.

But over the last two weeks I just started going back to school so mabye this is why. But this is my Junior year in College and I dont feel over powered with homework yet nor is this one of my hardest semesters. BUt all I want to do everyday is sleep. I just can't get enough sleep. 8pm comes and I want to go to bed, and last night I did. I wasent able to finish any of my homework or studies I just couldnt do it being as tired as I was. All day long Im yawning and can't wait to buy another coffee just to get through the day.


I know chronic fatigue usualy comes from a virus or illness and there have been cases of getting chronic fatigue after having mono. But anyone ever hear of getting it years after having mono?

Mabye Im just aging!? ahh! haha Im only 21

This might be a clue, CFIDS does not produce just tiredness but a host of other symptoms. Also, the extreme fatigue is usually accompanied by a fluey feeling but without the flu symptoms, fever, etc. When I am in a "Flare" my muscles feel very weak so that any activity is taxing; therefore, it is not just about feeling sleepy all the time but as if you have no resources left. It may be that the mono has revisited you. I agree with the poster above - see a doctor, get a blood panel, let him or her know your symptoms.

All the best
