I've got mono, yay. Instead of the traditional sore throat, I've got a weird issue when swallowing - the top-back of my throat (the bit that connects the nose to the throat?) flares in SHARP pain whenever I swallow. Anyone else experience this when they had mono? Any suggestions for relief?
Asking for panicking friend who has had a painful swollen lymph node on one side of her neck for a few weeks. Antibiotics didn't help, so last week she had a CAT scan done and the doctor wants her in today for a follow up. [more inside]
I'm getting tested for mono in the coming week. If I test positive, what are my next steps with my employer? (And am I required to stay home until I get the result?) [more inside]
YANMD. Early last fall, I had something come on that felt like a cold. Swollen glands, body pain. Fatigue. Maiaise. I had no respiratory symptoms. After six weeks, I thought it might be mono. But three mono tests have come back negative. [more inside]
I'm 100% deaf in my right ear, with normal hearing in my left. Listening to music through headphones is problematic since many songs are mixed for left and right and I either get too much vocals or not enough at all. Turns out some audiobooks/plays are worse, with one cast member's voice left and one right. I listen to things on both Android phone and iPad, and would not like to re-edit audio files. Would headphones solve this? Are there any decent ones that turn stereo into mono for under $100?

How do I explain to people the aftermath of what is probably due to mono? People (family, cute girls) keep brushing off my physical symptoms when I try to concisely explain that, even though I'm infinitely better than I was a couple months ago, my energy fuel tank still empties suddenly and unpredictably, and then I feel awful, freezing, aching, dizzy, and extremely sick until I sleep it off?

I am looking for information/anecdotal experience about the possibility of spreading infectious mononucleosis (i.e. Mono or Glandular Fever) through other sexual contact. I know the virus is transmitted through saliva, but could general close contact or other bodily fluids spread it as well? In addition, is it true that once one has shown symptoms of mono before, they still have the virus but are unlikely to have symptoms again (like chicken pox)? [more inside]
a week ago i started growing an ulcer (or canker sore) on the inside of my lip. i didn't think much of it, although it was growing quite large and white and i hadn't had one like that before. a week later i woke up very bone sore for no apparent reason, and while out and about.... [more inside]
My friend has mononucleosis. He shared a drink with a friend of mine who had mono several years ago. I later shared a fork with this latter friend. Is there a chance that I was exposed? Could my friend have been carrying the disease even if she can't contract again? I'm freaking out a little. In a couple weeks I'm going to start an intensive program that's 12 hours in the classroom a day for about a month, and the absolute last thing I need is to come down with mono. Ahh!

I have mononucleosis and I live by myself in New York. The first two days were agony, but six days later I feel great. When can I ride my bicycle again? Is it okay to have a beer? If I feel good, can I go for a long walk or dance to music? What about just hauling myself on the subway and getting groceries? If somebody elbows me, will my spleen rupture? How careful do I need to be? I'm not tired at all, do I still have to sleep all the time?
I'm a Roger Federer fan, and looking for insight into how mono could be affecting Roger's game. and how his continuing to play may affect him. He apparently had mono in January, says he is over it, but just lost his fourth tournament in a row, and uncharacteristically. I have a theory, but no expertise. and most of the commentary on the web seems idiotic to me. Realizing that very little information is public, it seems plausible to me that he is mostly better, but at his level of play (generally fantastic, record-breaking, etc) mostly is just not enough.

Somewhat of a budding programing looking for programing exercises. I'm kind of middle ground between not knowing anything and what you might call a novice. So really I know just enough to be dangerous and have ideas too big for my skills. What are some good exercises (mostly thinking C# [mono] here) that will help me develop into at least a novice? More after the break. [more inside]

Does anyone make an expandable, portable stereo digital music recorder? Several hard-disk MP3 players now support voice recording in mono. Korg has a cool little four-track recorder that unfortunately uses SmartMedia (128MB limit). This would be for a musician who likes to record every gig, but can't afford to hire a professional to mic every instrument. At the moment, he uses a consumer-grade minidisc recorder and a high quality stereo mic.
My father is thinking about buying an iPod. One problem though is that he has a hearing aid in one ear (90% hearing loss in one ear due to a childhood ear infection), and he'd like in-ear 'phones, like those that come with the ipod, with independent volume control - so he can turn one ear off, and shunt the stereo > mono when he has the hearing aid in, and turn one way up when he has the hearing aid out. Any ideas?
