Can you think of any pathogens that would last a very long time in someone's throat and cervical lymph nodes
but not really exhibit any other symptoms? I got sick somewhere around Feb/March. After three weeks of misery (at the time: swollen lymph nodes, some small sinus involvement, some coughing, terrible ear pain, throat pain, red and raw throat, possible sores, but not super visible). We checked for mono and strep with rapid tests. Both were negative.
