anybody having facial pains from herpes

2 posts in this topic

Im new to the forum. I was told I have some kind of herpes. I been having extreme pain on one side of my face. I started to take medicine for 10 days and pain, burning would go away. this is been happening for at least 3 to 4 years now. At one point they thought it was some type of TMJ but have been seeing a chiropacter, he thinks it's the herpes virus.

Recently the pain is not going away and the doctor placed me on veltrax everyday. When i'm on medicine, the pain is almost at 5-10 percent from 100 W/O medicine.

I do not have visible sores on mouth area but inside my inner thighs, I do see reddish marks that are very itchy, but the medicine makes it less itchy and goes away.

My question: is anybody out there having similiar reactions.. sometimes I don't think it's herpes but I'm really confused.

It's not the end of world and I feel good on medicine.

Hello :wavey: Like you I'm new to this forum... I don't have GH but get cold-sore outbreaks on my face and chest on the right side of my body. I suffer a great deal of pain from them even when they're not there or I have an outbreak. Doctor seems to think it's neuralgia. sometimes the pain is so bad I have to take Amitriptiline sedatives and the glands on the back of my head all swell up...

the doctor told me that the neuralgia is something completely different and not linked to cold-sores, however, I now think differently as I never had a problem until I was diagnosed with cold-sores and the pain only comes on one side of my face and head where I get the outbreaks!!

So yep I know how you feel an the pain is horrible too.. Sedatives should help whilst the outbreak is really bad but strong pain killers will do the trick too xx

    • Some Things I Wish I Knew When I was First Diagnosed
      THANK YOU BEYONCE!!! Now in December will be a year and it's just been a roller coaster full of emotions for me.  You not only educated me but brought tears of joy and hope.  I have not been able to build courage and open up to ANYONE to talk about my condition.  I just found this forum a few days and decided to write today.  My case it that I get really extra itchy before my period and I think I'm gonna have an OB.  I've been moody lately and I think this is not helping me. I've been taking Valtrex daily and started lysine.  I'm definitely trying the free oil today.  Anyway, I want you to know that I value all your information specially knowing that the chances of transmitting H to my partner is minimal.  I didn't know this.  I just have been avoiding sex as much as possible and this has been hurting my relationship.  After reading your post I have high hope that my life will sooner rather than later be back to normal XOXO

      I have a doctors appointment on Thursday and i will try to get them to prescribe me Gabapentin or Amiptriptline, see if either of them work. Knowing these stupid doctors they will just say "ibuprofen" like last time..
    • Numbness??
      Is it normal with ghsv2 to have a kinda numbing dull feeling on your (ladylips)
    • oral herpes?
      Thanks for the replies guys Eh kinda yeah, sometimes the tips of my tounge get little red spots while inside my upper and lower lip will get like non painful blisters but theyl have yellow heads? Don't think there canker either! They come and go too. My top lip also heats up anytime I grind my teeth along it (without noticing I do it) small bumps then start to form but go down after say an hour? Pretty strange the way it activates then goes again? I aslo have this sane blister I spoke about with the yellow head on my inner top lip since late September, its flat there's no raise from it, doesn't hurt hasn't changed shape nor colour but its still there, I check almost every day and its never disperad! Anyone any ideas or advice? Constantly worked about oral or kissing my bf because its never left my inner lip after months!
