Diet question

Recommended Posts


since I have been diagnosed I noticed that if I eat some of my favorite foods, peanut butter or chocolate I get a tingling sensation with in a couple of hours. I have started taking lysine suppliment 2 times a day and this helps.

Because this is relatively newly diagnosed I am aware of every little change.

I have not had any outbreaks other than tingling sensations and the end half of my penis may be sensitive for a short period.

Any thoughts of experiences would be helpfull

hey maineguy - almost same exact thing i deal with. no real outbreaks, but lots of tingling sensations in the same area as you describe. they actually are starting to subside quite a bit though and i'm not sure if it's due to time (about 3 months now) or what i've been taking. and i'm not totally convinced that my mind doesn't casue the tingling after some chocolate or coffee since i've read those are 2 major things to stay away from. i've cut down my caffeine intake, but i still have a cup of joe in morning and overall I eat pretty well now - lots of fruit and veggies. i too take lysine as well as oil of oregano, olive leaf extract, cell food and multivitamin and recently stopped valtrex after 2 months since things were starting to mellow out. anyway, hope that was helpful.
