I had a cold that developed about two weeks ago, with a horrible sore throat and congestion and a low grade fever for a couple of days. These symptoms seem to have gone away, but now I have lots of discolored mucous and horrible sinus pressure which is giving me toothaches on my upper jaw. I am also constantly fatigued. I am wondering if this is still a normal part of the cold, or if it has developed into something else?
Also, I have been getting consistently sick every month since June of last year and my boyfriend was diagnosed with mono in July. I was never tested but it seems that many of my symptoms fit the diagnosis, especially chronic fatigue.
My mom also has hypothyroidism, which I know is genetic and can cause fatigue. I guess what I'm really wondering is if I should/can get a blood test done at the health center, to rule out the possibilities of mono and hypothyroidism?
It is important to be seen for your upper respiratory symptoms that are persisting and yes, we can do blood work testing for mono and thyroid function. Call 650-3400 for a same day appointment.
