Hello! I have had mono for 6+ months now. My ONLY symptom is that I am tired ALL the time. After 4 months I was convinced that I must have something else because I was not experiencing any of the other symptoms that I have read about. I insisted that my doctor order another blood test and sure enough, it still says I have mono. She has told me that it could last a year or even longer. Prior to having mono, I was very physically active – at least 4-6 times a week. My doctor said to drink plenty of fluids and eat lots of protein, both of which I have been doing with no sign of improvement. She also said to get as much rest as possible–how does anyone do that while trying to maintain a full-time job and raise 3 young children!! It is nice to know that I am not the only one experiencing mono for such an extended period of time. Good luck to you!
