Infectious mononucleosis


I had Mono (infectious mononucleosis) when I was in sixth grade. It was probably caused by the Epstein-Barr virus. It is often transmitted through saliva or by touching an infected object before putting one’s hands near one’s nose or mouth. I have never felt so sick in my life. The symptoms of mono are a sore throat, loss of appetite, headache, fatigue, fever, and swollen lymph nodes, just to name a few. Massage therapy should not be performed on someone with mono until he has recovered. It is a contagious disease: the therapist needs to take precautions to avoid spreading the disease to other patients or catching the disease himself.
