Hey elnino welcome. You can try a general practice doctor , then a Neurologist for the prodromes. Where you are located has many good physicians. I've tried 23 different doctors with numerous status like "Infectious disease", "Neurologist", "Internal Medicine", "Immunologist" and the list goes on and on. I've had regular Family medicine doctor's rate better than MOST of my "Specialty" doctor's since they don't seem to hide behind their specialist titles. I've dreaded telling new doctors and recalling back to when, where and how of getting herpes. It gets easier and you can always do like I usually do when consultations with New doctor, bring copies of your medical records to show them, I make copies for New doctor and ask them to read then ask questions. I can tell when they don't fully read my histories. I also keep a few months stockpile of antivirals. After 28years with Ghsv 2 and being married for 26years to a non h man, I can assure you for MOST everyone I've spoken with it does get better ! I've had several years of experience in coping and I've sacrificed nothing. Hugs Aces xo
TBH there is research going on into a cure but don't expect anything for many years yet. Its a little curious given that drug companies are all about money and with so many sufferers you would have thought this would have got their attention but sadly nothing on the horizon that is concrete.
Stress is No. 1 tricker for my OB. First OB was bad, valtrex fixed it and I started taking Lysine after the 1st OB finished then suppressive meds for a year after. Now I only take meds when needed. I think different people react to the virus differently. I heard that someone has the virus for a long time without knowing it because they don't have OB.
