Yes, the IgG have been negative every time.
My next question would be, have you had any other cases where those symptoms could have been caused by CMV or EBV or even something else? And, if so, is it possible for me to find out this far after being sick? While your previous response is very reassuring and I have heard that now from 2 other doctors, I feel like my mind will never be at ease about this until I know what DID cause it.
I’ve read other articles about how the diseases can sometimes be confused in diagnoses because of similar symptoms (and in rare cases including the lesion) and actually could have caused my IgM to be positive. This is the part that concerns me, because if my symptoms were so similar to mono, the fact that my doctor did not even test me and jumped right to the conclusion of herpes could have been very serious as I went off to play in a tournament that weekend, and from what I know of mono, you are supposed to avoid contact sports or it could even be deadly.
Thanks for your prompt response to my last question!
