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!

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


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.


Very warm , inviting professional staff..


Love the people there and how they listen to me.. their office is always clean and neat the staff is really nice and lovely


I love the staff and I love how they listen to me when I have a problem.


I have been a patient at Dr Kaszubas’s office for several years now. I cannot express how good it feels to have found an office where the nurses and staff just “get it” and know what they’re doing. They always take the time to listen, which is something you don’t see much of anymore. Denise, Sarah, and the P.A. C.C...outstanding! Not only are they incredibly friendly, but knowledgeable in everything they do. If they don’t have the answer to something, they will have it for you within minutes. Five stars all the way! I am extremely happy with them.


Dr. Kaszuba & his staff always go above & beyond. A+
