Panic attacks and outbreaks

8 posts in this topic

Hi,

I have had panic attacks for years and they come and go. I have not had any since I was diagnosed with herpes 3 years ago, but about 2 months ago, I had an outbreak that caused neuropathy, which started a panic attack because I thought it was something much worse. The panic hasn't stopped (everyday I have at least 1 episode) and I am having outbreaks one after the other. Like it will clear up and then about 5 days later start again. And I can't stop panicking.

My question is, do any of you who have panic attacks find that it makes you have outbreaks? Is it doing the same thing to the body that stress does?

Thanks!

I am not sure what kind it is, but I have burning pain in my pelvic region when I have an outbreak. When it first happened I thought I was having a bladder infection, then it got so bad I thought I had pelvic inflammatory disease or something, but it is just the nerve pain.

I get this odd pressure in my pelvis...is your similar? Not really burning just pressure. I've often wondered if mine is nerve pain too.

Sometimes it is a pressure feeling with no burning (when I take valtrex and don't let it get too far). It drives me crazy because I stay focused on it and think its probably something worse, even though I've had the pain before.

and, does the pelvic pain just come with outbreaks? or, is it there all the time?

It only hurts during outbreaks, but even when the outbreak is over, the pain will linger for a few days.

      I was unfortunately diagnosed just as I was starting a new relationship with a fantastic guy. I thought for sure he'd head for the hills when I told him, but he surprised me and said "I've been through way worse, herpes is not the end of the world, its not a big deal, and it definitely is not a deal breaker for me. I am not going to leave you ." So have faith, there are really good, understanding men out there, who will not have an issue with this. As for disclosing, I wouldn't disclose to anyone that you do not have a serious relationship with, unless you are considering continuing to have a sexual relationship with them, then you should disclose. Give them the facts, and then let them decide if they want to continue the relationship. Suppressive therapy, and the use of condoms greatly reduces your risk (less then 2% chance) of spreading this to male partners. You will still have a sex life, and you will always find someone to share your life with regardless of the hsv.

      The reason is that type may be at issue if the swab was not correctly typed. HSV-2 may have just been assumed given the genital location. However given you have had just the one outbreak and oral sex was involved, then HSV-1 may be a possibility.  HSV-1 is something your partner could have had since childhood. I would also suggest that your partner could get a blood test straight away and this will help you understand what types were at risk.

      First of all let's have a think about your diagnosis.  Did you have a swab or blood test and what were the results?

      Hi,   I am a female in my early 20's and i was just diagnosed with Herpes. I have multiple partners and don't usually use condoms. There was an unfortunate event that happened where i was drunk and wasn't totally aware when i was having sex as i forget things when i am too drunk. I knew the person but not too well.  He was aware i was drunk and i only remember vivid moments that night. I am sure it was that guy. I just don't know how to come to terms with this. It was my mistake, i know and i accept. But the most problem i'm worried about is future partners or partners i'm already seeing of how to tell them and how to go on with having sex.

      Same here my camera doesnt pick up the details, they r very small almost like the tip of a pin and looking at it w my eyes barely looks like anything is there. But i can feel it. Mine is hsv 1, got it from oral sex. It doesnt cause much problems,  but it seems like i get 1 tiny one every 3 to 4 weeks which im confused abt bc i should have some kind of my own antibodies build up from oral hsv.

      I just joined because I read about your topical anti-viral lip balm use. I have been drinking colloidal silver to try and suppress the activation of my cold sores, but I'm still getting 1 every 2-3 months.....  They seem to not last as long as they did before I was drinking colloidal silver, but sometimes I still get a good week's worth... I'm excited to try any type of daily "anti-viral" application regimen. Do you think they (cold sores) will ever become "immune" or more resistant to the docosanol?  I always feel like viruses can become tricky and adaptable like that.  I subconsciously feel like they're getting around my silver therapy, little by little.  Glad to hear that your going on such a long streak, I would almost cut my pinky finger tip off for a full years break & the whole pinky finger to have them gone for good. My cold sores really need to take a Long vacation from me, preferably with no return ticket home.

      If you have HSV 2 genital and your partner performs oral on you then there is a risk of transmitting HSV 2 to the partners oral area. But if your HSV 2 and just kissing on the lips i.e. the mouth then no you won't transmit HSV 2 to your partner, only direct skin to skin contact with the infected area. Keep in mind a lot of people are HSV 1 positive so maybe your partner should get checked to make sure HSV 1 oral isn't passed to you by kissing or vice versa .

      I've been working alot lately in long hours and hot days and been realizing I've had more and more outbreaks from my kind of work. Any suggestions on what I can do or take to help prevent outbreaks from occurring often. It's an annoyance working a long hot day and having to deal with my irritation of my outbreak.

      Hi Richie,   I looked at the site you recommended.  I'm glad it worked so effectively for you. It doesn't really specify the active ingredients on the site, that I could find other than: " Natural-based protein". Does it have any more information on the label of the product you purchased?  I'm interested in how proteins could help cold sores, but that seems pretty vague. Thanks
