Might Have Something, Looking For Advice

Recommended Posts


Halloween weekend, I ended up getting with two different girls, but it was nothing but making out. I am a little suspicious about the first one because I didn't know her.

So, less than a week after the hook up, a semi small area of my upper lip turned a little darker red than normal, and it may have puffed up a little as well, but it definitely wasn't normal. Anyway, it didn't seem to get any worse after that, and it seems to be gone now. There was no real pain involved, but it had a kind of sour taste to it.

Now, I wake up today, and my throat is "sore". Again, there is no real pain in my throat either, but it feels like a lump at the top of my throat and mucus is getting caught in the area. Could just be a normal sore throat or something, but I'm mentioning it because I read that the lymph nodes in your neck could become swollen.

Finally, towards the base of my bottom lip on the inside of my mouth, I noticed a small spot that I can barely reach with my tongue. It seems to have the same taste as what was on my upper lip. No pain here either.

So ya, that's what I've been experiencing for the past week or so. A spot on my upper lip, the top of my throat towards the back, and a small spot at the base of my bottom lip in my mouth. Maybe I'm just overreacting, but I'm still concerned. I need to see about getting blood work done just to be sure. Any input will be greatly appreciated.

Go see your doctor

Never rely on strangers you meet on a website for medical advice. You ask 15 different people, you are more than likely to get 15 different answers.

Go to your doctor and get professional medical advice.

Good luck!

Try a Lysine supplement for cold sores

      But you were probably also exposed to HSV-1,2,3,4,5,6ab,7,8. There are also about 80 other human viruses and you would have been exposed to a dozen of those. There are tens of different bacteria that also transmit during sexual activity. There are also hundreds of possible  causes generated with your body.

      The sad part is I was exposed to HSV 2 so judging by what information Im told, If I had herpes mine would almost definitely show up on an IGG test by now.  Supposedly I’d have less than an 8% chance of it not showing up on a blood test. All I can do is go off the information Im given.   My thing is this: I need to know what is causing this.  If the medical world wants to tell me that I dont have herpes, fine.  What is it that I have then? And how do I get rid of it? Otherwise, being negative for herpes means nothing to me.  Because Im still positive for something, and they cant even figure out what the hell it is! Because my body definitely changed after I was exposed to it.

      That’s incorrect for recent infections where it nears 100%. Those people have a positive swab.

      Herpes is not some default magic rabbit that comes out of the hat and makes sense out of the irrational.

      @RainyDay2 i am about to pull out the big bht guns. Hey if i can get rid of the symptoms forever and never blow positive, ill take it. My other thought was hpv but i know i was exposed. The last clinician i saw definitely thought my lip things looked herpetic and sajd she's seen urethral herpes before too.    Igg can be forever negative in some, i have heard hsv1 has less accuracy with igg
