I actually did have mono twice. There are two types of viruses that cause mono, one is the Epstein Barr Virus and the other is Cytomegalovirus.

A person can have cold or flu like symptoms initially, such as a sore throat, cough, runny nose and swollen lymph nodes in the neck. Usually a fever over 100 is present. Severe fatigue can surface, weakness and aches in muscles along with nausea and vomiting. My abodomen was tender and spleen swollen..this is pretty typical. Jandice can even occur which will be evident by yellowing of the eyes, or bile in the urine...this is usually in the more severe stages. Everyone may not have all of these symptoms, the a common factor seems to be an ill feeling, temperature along with the weakness and fatigue.

The initial symptoms of "mono" are:

a general lack of energy or malaise,
a loss of appetite, and
chills.
These initial symptoms can last from one to three days before the more intense symptoms of the illness begin. The more common intense symptoms include:

a severe sore throat,
fever, and
swollen glands (lymph nodes) in the neck area.

In addition to a fever from 102 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit, the most common signs of "mono" are:

a very reddened throat and tonsils and
swollen lymph glands in the neck.
The tonsils have a whitish coating in at least one third of the cases. About 5% of patients have a splotchy red rash over the body, which has a similar appearance to the rash of measles.

and yes, its reoccuring. so you can have it more than once
