When Your Throat’s Feeling Sore, Come Down to Polmed Primary Care for a Mono Test!

One of the first signs of mononucleosis, also known as “the kissing disease,” is a sore throat that gets progressively worse over the course of a few days. It might be hard to swallow foods and liquids, and it may hurt to speak after time left untreated. You should schedule mono testing near Tampa at Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic at the first sign of symptoms. In these cases, wouldn’t you rather be tested and come back negative than not be tested and suffer the symptoms of a treatable illness?

While it’s true that you can catch the virus for mononucleosis from kisses, it’s not a romantic or affection-based illness. Mono could easily be caught through any exchange of saliva, such as sharing food or drinks, casual kisses between children or adults (such as when grandma gives you a smooch after not seeing you for a long time), and touching anything directly after someone with mono has either drank or eaten from whatever you touch.

Mono usually begins with feelings of fatigue, bad headaches, and sore throats. For younger children, usually between the ages of 3 to 8, mono goes unnoticed because any symptoms are written off as the usual cold or flu. However, the difference is that mononucleosis can stay within your system, even after you stop showing symptoms, for 6 to 8 weeks.

What are the Severe Symptoms of Mononucleosis?

In rare cases, mono causes severe symptoms, typically in people with already compromised immune systems. Some of the more severe symptoms of mono could include swelling of the lymph nodes and tonsils, enlargement of the spleen from long-term exposure, shortness of breath, inflammation, and heart palpitations.

While your sore throat and fatigue could be an everyday cold, scheduling mono testing near Tampa never hurts. Polmed Primary Care & Walk-In Clinic can help you with a treatment for your symptoms if you have a positive mono diagnosis. Call us at (727) 339-2054.

We Love Our Customers!

This is a great office. From Sarah upfront back to Nicole And Denise, these medical professionals are exceptional and so caring! I actually found this office for my wife but am so impressed I will be switching to them as my primary care office! If you are looking for an attentive and thorough doctors office, this is the one. Thanks guys, you put my wife (and me) at ease Dan and Carrie Murphy

I’m a newer patient of Nicole, and I have nothing but great things to say about both her and the practice. I’ve been struggling with severe stomach pains for a few years now, and none of the other doctors I’ve seen have been able to find anything they’re able to do about it. Most haven’t even been willing to do tests to find out what’s going on. My appointment with Nicole was for a refill on a prescription for a skin condition, but Nicole made sure to go over all of my medical history as well as my families. She asked questions no other medical professional has ever asked, and one of these led to her realizing there may be something wrong that’s causing my pain. I’ve had to fight with doctors just to get them to order tests, and half of the time the tests ordered weren’t even remotely related to what I told them was happening. She sat there in front of me looking up the exact tests that needed to be ordered to check for the condition she thinks I may have, wrote them down, and said those exact things to the woman who wrote the script for the tests. I also had to get a refill on a migraine medication while I was there, but this med is expensive and takes time to get my insurance to cover. Because of that, she made sure to offer me free samples of the medication so that I could start taking them right away. I did forget to get these when I left that day, but they made picking them up later so easy. They’re also being very helpful in doing their part to get my insurance to cover this medication. Also, if you need a last minute appointment, they take walk ins! This place is great, and cares a lot.

I’ve been going to CC, a Nurse Practitioner, Denise, and Sarah, at Dr. Kaszuba’s office for a long time now. I just want to say how I love this office. I found out about the office when I took an elderly patient here for her visit. They were so welcoming, I decided to switch to them for my doctor even though I live in Pinellas Park. I’ve always received the best care here.

The team at the front office is amazing I appreciate how nice Sarah has been with helping me with my appointments. The whole team does a great job and really care. Cassie Thomas

Great staff, smooth process. Booked through Zocdoc, staff called and confirmed appointment. Visit was friendly and informative. I was looking for a Primary, this office pretty much summed my decision. Thank you Polmed!

I felt very comfortable and welcomed. Doc was very knowledgeable.looking forward to having this team guide me back to health!

I wouldn’t change doctors for anything, Dr. Kaszuba is the best! I overlook the small stuff that is irrelevant ! He goes above & beyond !Not only is he a polite gentleman, but he has nailed every condition I’ve had, proving certain specialists incorrect! He’s old school knows the body in its entirety not just generally! I hope he gets rest, though! Also, his staff are awesome they love him! It’s all a breath of fresh air especially during these times. Thank you, all!

Very professional, i highly recommend

My family doctor for years

I have been a patient of Dr Kaszuba, Ben Landry, and "Ci Ci" for 15 years. I am a retired 33-year clinican myself. I credit Dr. Kaszuba for saving my life, as he recognized my symptoms at a very early stage, intervened, and took action immediately. His staff maintains a high standard of ethics in their areas of expertise especially Sarah. And have been very considerate of my health status, relaying information and communications.I travel 2 hours one- way for my appointments because of the high quality of care.
