ehm question

Hi everyone,

well this is probably a ridiculous question, but I got diagnosed with hvs2 little over a month a go and so far have been asymptomatic ehm I think anyway. Well I guess like with everyone when they first find out, it has been hard, feeling stressed and crying all the time. Don't think I have had a good night sleep and apparently being stressed is the last thing you want to be.

Anyway so my question... early last week I developed a light stinging pain on my tongue but did not think to much off it, I only sometimes felt it when I ate or drank a hot beverage. Now I developed what looks like blisterlike red flat small peasized thingies for lack of a better word on the back of my tongue and on my temple, they are quit distinctive. Not alien bursting out of chest distinctive but hard to ignore they are there.

Now I will freely admit all this has left me feeling a bit paranoid and I do like spicy food. I know hsv2 is majority genital and oral lesions will be on the lip, rarely inside of the mouth, but apparently it is possible, maybe? They are really distinctive and it is uncomfortable to swallow. could it just be my love for spicy Indian food? I made an appointment with the doctor for tomorrow to get it confirmed but I don't really want to go as they have proved to be so clueless about it all.

So could it be a herpes outbreak? I can't believe I'm even asking this question, a month ago I would never even have considered that I would one day be wondering whether I was having an herpes outbreak on my tongue. Life is a constant journey I guess.

Thank you for your help.

It is uncommon within the mouth. And we do have to let the doctors sometimes stumble through their diagnosis of things. They don't always get it right the first time.

How were you diagnosed with HSV2? Was it a type-specific IgG blood test (very reliable), or just some nurse / doctor looking at it and saying "looks to me like herpes" (not very reliable).

Also bear in mind that it's possible you've had HSV for years and not known about it (some people don't experience symptoms for years, and many don't experience any at all).

It's also quite likely that these "thingies" you describe are nothing to do with herpes at all (their locations for one thing lead me to doubt it).

      Yes and I have received quite a number of complaints about you too... people wondering why you haven’t been banned for such flagrant lying. Anyways, it matters not. Readers can see what is the truth, and truth is all that matters.

      @WilsoInAus talking to you is like talking to the wall, follow your path and do not give importance to my comments and received complaints from other users of how you judge who has problems with the community of hsv are you, doctors are too wrong do not know everything and you who have no medical and academic training will judge a doctor who with a blood test and a culture diagnosed me with hsv-1 (I'll tell you a phrase that a doctor told me you're not going to judge my diagnoses that's why I I left the mother 8 years studying) _______________________ hablar contigo es como hablar con la pared siga su camino y no le dé importancia a mis comentarios e recibido quejas tuyas de otros usuarios de como los juzgas el que tiene problemas con la comunidad de hsv eres tú, los médicos se equivocan demasiado no lo saben todo y tu que no tienes ninguna formación médica y académica va a juzgar un médico que con un examen de sangre y un cultivo me diagnostico hsv-1 ( te diré una frase que un médico me dijo tu no vas a juzgar mis diagnósticos por eso me partí la madre 8 años estudiando)

      No I’m sorry that is not the case. You have lied and deceived to feed your own paranoia. That is unacceptable behaviour anywhere, particularly this behaviour. Our readers understand perfectly. It’s time to reflect upon this atrocious behaviour. Please comeback when you’re prepared to be mature. I’m sorry no one has been able to help you overcome your psychological problems regarding herpes.

      lo que tú no entiendes es que no todos tienen los mismos síntomas y los mismos brotes hay gente que no tiene síntomas y sabe brotes recurrentes mucha gente tiene síntomas sin brotes visibles heno asintomáticos y sintomáticos muchos doctores confunden un brote de hsv a una espinilla (acné ) y viceversa _______________________ @WilsoInAus what you do not understand is that not everyone has the same symptoms or the same outbreaks there are people who do not have symptoms and get recurring outbreaks many people have symptoms without visible outbreaks there are asymptomatic and symptomatic many doctors confuse an outbreak of hsv to a pimple (acne) ) and vice versa

      @WilsoInAus estas muy mal, mi  diagnostico de hsv fue sólo por escuchar mis síntomas sin pruebas de sangre eso fue a los 20 días la prueba de sangre fue casi al cumplir un mes además todos las personas son diferentes el hsv no dura mucho en infectar células epiteliales en muchos casos a los 15 días de la infección ya puedes obtener anticuerpos hay gente que dura meses hay gente que dura menos de un mes porque tiene que ser igual para todos? _____________________ you are very bad, my diagnosis of hsv was just by hearing my symptoms without blood tests that was 20 days after the blood test was almost one month later all the people are different the hsv does not last long in infecting epithelial cells in many cases after 15 days of infection and you can get antibodies there are people who last for months there are people who last less than a month because it has to be the same for everyone?
