Glandular Fever Symptoms:
There are many websites listing glandular
so I will not detail them all again on this site. Please go to
http://www.glandularfever.info for more information on glandular fever
Glandular Fever in adults:
are many cases of glandular fever in adults (older than teenagers). I
have received more and
more requests for help from older adults over the last few years (ages
ranging from 35 to 65). The one thing they all seem to have
common with each other (and with those young adults who
traditionally come down with the illness) is
their high physical activity levels and fast paced / action
packed lifestyles (burning the candle at both ends)! In
the lead up to glandular fever there is usually also some other extra
emotional, mental or physical stress which pushes them just that bit
too far, thus succombing to the illness.
fever and post viral fatigue - glandular fever and chronic fatigue
glandular fever recurrence -
glandular fever relapse:
always think that after a bad case of Glandular Fever, you
left with a chronic lowering of your threshold for overdoing it. If you
continue to go over this threshold, either physically (with too much
exercise, socialising, lots of long distance driving, moving house etc)
mentally (with too much stress with work etc) or emotionally (with
relationship problems, family changes etc) then the “internal GF health
barometer signals begin to show again” (sore throats, tonsil problems
or swollen glands / headaches) followed a little while later by the old
tiredness symptoms and various other Glandular fever symptoms. Normally
it is a combination of the above and gradually you run yourself over
your threshold. These stresses can be positive or negative . . . both
would have an influence on your body’s coping capacity. In some cases I
feel that this threshold is left very low so it would not take much for
the old symptoms and tiredness to flare up again.
These troubles seem to be part and parcel of the following on-going
issues: glandular fever and post viral fatigue, glandular fever and
chronic fatigue, glandular fever recurrence (of symptoms), recurrent
glandular fever (diagnosed) glandular fever relapse.
If you are experiencing on-going troubles
post glandular fever,
never feeling 100%, with on-going bouts of acute glandular fever
symptoms and underlying fatigue, then it can be worthwhile trying to do
everything you can to entice your body to get back on track again.
Supporting your immune system, adrenal system and the liver is a good
way to begin. Often the digestive system becomes disturbed if the post
glandular fever tiredness continues beyond 6-12 months so this is
another area which is worth supporting. As the body gets stronger it is
then hoped that relapses will not show themselves as often and
not as harshly. Often a build up of stress can be a trigger for a bad
bout of old glandular fever syptoms with chronic fatigue, so it is
important to keep stress levels as low as possible.
Unreliable energy levels are extremely furstarting and can make you
feel very down about everything.
Learning to manage your health and energies as well as you can may give
you a more postive outlook and more confidence in your health.
Good eating, lifestyle and supplement advice is a good way
begin to try and get on top of your health and energies and set you on
the right path - for on-going glandular
