Sometimes I think our family doctor doesn't get concerned where I feel he should. My daughter is 21, this year alone, she has been quite sick, fatigued, sleeping alot, just generally not well. The doctor finally out her her exasperation checked her for Mono and sure enough, at the time she wasn't "active" but tests showed she did have it.

Now here again, same symptoms, tested her for everything and finally mono and sure enough, she's had it within the last mth or two.

At one point do I need to be concerned over a normally very healthy 21 year old getting Mono TWICE in one year??? Do I need to change doctors and start checking something else? I find this very strange that this has happened.

Why are you thinking she had it twice? I'm not following you. Please clarify.

My sister, who is about the same age as your daughter, this year got mono. She was a wreck & missed a lot of work & school, but got better after about 2-3 weeks. The doc had told her that she could be out of comission for months and that there may be effects of the sickness that could stay with her for life. It could be that your daughter has never fully recovered from the first time she got mono? I would get a second opinion, if for no other reason than to get a fresh look at your situation. A different doc might be able to see something the other one missed or offer you a better idea of what to expect with the sickness, or maybe look at other areas of your daughters health to find any other possible problems. Good luck & I hope your daughter gets better soon.
