Might Have Something, Looking For Advice

Recommended Posts

ThisGuy15

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.

you are overreacting

wait 12 weeks and get a blood test using herpeselect immunoblot testing for confirmation

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!

      I believe there will be a cure for a gun and I do not want to lose my faith

      What do you think about ahcc? It is used in the treatment of HPV and increases immunity. Can it also prevent hsv? because increasing immunity will reduce recurrences. can it work? sorry for the spelling mistakes because it is not an anthropology

      Bleh, been a little over a month since I posted this and still having the burning pain since April. Will I ever feel normal down below again without taking meds for nerve pain?

      Although I am male, I have nerve pain down below as well. Instead of my leg, it is actually in my scrotum. I contracted this virus last year in December 2017. My initial outbreak was in my throat, nothing down below at all. Test in January confirmed that I had HSV-2; tested looking for IGG antibodies which were at 23. In April, I believe i had a very minor outbreak with just one spot that may have been a blister in my groin. Although there was no pain, I was afraid that it would get worse so I decided to take my valtrex for 5 days (the spot disappeared within 3 days). Two days after I stopped valtrex, the nerve pain came about and was in both of my inner thighs and my scrotum. From that moment on, the nerve pain moved from the thighs and stayed only in my scrotum and has persisted daily ever since.  My nerve pain is constant; not in the sense of 24/7 non stop, but on and off throughout the day, every day. So in essence, I'm in the same boat with you where I don't have any visible symptoms (no redness though in my case), but have the constant burning sensation. I will admit, hearing your story and knowing that this has persisted for you for over 16 years is kind of disheartening to me. I keep telling myself that because I am still new to this virus, my body is still getting use to it and that after the first year one day the nerve pain will stop completely. Now I am not so sure.
