First outbreak

Recommended Posts

startingnew

When I was diagnosed, I asked my doctor why she was so sure that my husband gave it to me. Maybe I had it for 10 years dormant and just having an outbreak now. She said she had never seen such a bad outbreak (I had a fever and the whole works) and that this definitely was a first outbreak type. Now I have had maybe a couple since the first time in 10 years. Anyway, can you never have an outbreak and have it dormant and not know it and then have a severe outbreak, or is my doctor right in saying that I would not have had that horrific of an outbreak if it were not "new"?

I am experiencing the same thing. I had a fever, headaches, incontinence....you name the symptom and I had it. My doctor told me it was the worst outbreak he has ever witnessed and he said my boyfriend definitely gave it to me. My boyfriend, now ex told me his test came back negative...not sure if true since I have not seen the test. My blood test came back with a 3.5 antibody reading for hsv2. The nurse told me with that reading it was not recently contracted and that I have had this for a while. Did you get a blood test? What was your antibody count?
