Paranoia....

Recommended Posts

Lost321

I am a newbie and going through bouts of paranoia... I was diagnosed a week ago with HSV 1 and 2 (bloodtest found antibodies). I have not had any noticeable OB, but I had gotten tested to make sure I did not have any STDs which I found out of course that I do now... Two days ago I developed a little "sore" on the side of my tongue; hardly/barely any pain. It was almost like a tiny "burn" spot. Then today I notice tiny red dots almost like my taste buds looked a little bigger and a little redder. I just got on acyclovir two days ago and will be taking them as a suppressant. I'm not sure if I'm having an outbreak or if I'm just paranoid... I haven't had any blistering or white pussy looking blisters or anything like that. Not sure... I was hoping someone could give me some guidance :)

Thanks....

You may get lucky and never get noticeable symptoms. It is rare to get herpes inside your mouth. Also there is likely to also be swollen lymph glands or tingling accompanying the symptoms but ask a Dr to look at to be sure.

Remember stress is to herpes like spinach is to Popeye!

You could have had this years...you just don't know...if you have it is unlikely something will suddenly show up because you have just had a blood test.

I totally understand the paranoia though...I get very distinct out break symptoms, a numbness in my leg for a couple of days before, swollen glands and the spot it comes up in gets itchy...but I worry. I get thrush or piles...totally different symptoms and I think "but some people get herpes and it looks like..." and then the ball of string starts to unravel! I have to remind myself that the same condition is not going to appear in a multitude of different ways.

If you are having sex take the suppressants to minimise transferring it, tell you partners...and live your wonderful life :-)

Your "pussy blisters" made me laugh...I know what you meant...but little blisters that look like tiny vaginas...it made me laugh...I just have a quirky sense of humour I guess!

Thanks

the beauty of the English language...

Vtiny,

Thank you for your response. As far as "pussy" I didn't realize it until you pointed it out... it was meant to be an adjective of PUS so I guess it should have been pus-filled or something like that... thanks for pointing it out though...definitely made me laugh at myself for once :)

Laughing is good. It was an amusing image...next time I have my sketch book out I think I may explore it...you have inspired me ;-)

I had another laugh from a post on another thread where somebody asked me if I had had a virginal birth. I wish...maybe then I wouldn't have H... but sadly I am far too naughty a girl who enjoys sex way too much to be giving birth virginally :-)

HAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAH OMG i was thinking "OMG why would this person call them PUSSY blisters?" HAHAHAHAHAHAH

(but I know NOW you meant "pus" after reading the responses that followed!)

WOW. I needed this laugh today. SO BADLY.

Thank you.

On a more serious note - I hope you find the answers you are looking for and thank you for making me smile :)

      That's some new info for me you mentioned about talking valtrex during the first month of infection. When I got mine, it was after heavy nights of partying (that I don't normally do) in the southern islands so my immunity was definitely dead. I was still a student back then.. I didn't start Acyclovir until a month after or so.  For mixing BHT with coconut oil, I just added them together into a glass pipette bottle and put the jar in a bowl of almost boiling water. It worked very easily to create a 250mg/ml solution.  I might give BHT another try, I quit if after 2 weeks because I didn't get any effects from it. Might give it another go at 1g/day.  Root canalled tooth.. is this because you get the outbreaks in your mouth? I also have a root canalled tooth but the OBs are genital.

      Yes, it was affecting my thyroid, I can feel it swell when the infection comes on.  It is known as hashimoto's.  The immune system inadvertently attacks the thyroid tissue in a collateral damage type effect.  It can be caused by any of the 8 types of herpes virus.  I believe that my infection is in my vagus nerve.  Anyways, it has been hell, but I have it to a manageable level now.  Steven also said that the recurring infection could be due to a root canalled tooth.  I had a root canal job done on a molar but never got around to putting a crown on it, so that could be causing some reactivation as well.  I am planning to pull it out soon.

      Thanks Quest, so I just googled this and it appears that heating does break it down.  I have been heating at the lowest heat that my gas burner will burn at, and just to the point where I can get it to dissolve, but it appears I have been inactivating a percentage of the bht.  Will have to figure out a better way.   I think heating to 100 degrees celsius likely will not inactivate too much.  According to this study, heating it to 175 degrees for 2 hours only inactivated 15-30% of the bht.  I think I read the way to heat it was inside a jar placed into a pot of boiling or simmering water.  Will try making a batch that way.  https://link.springer.com/article/10.1007/s11746-000-0147-9

      Valtrex is worthless against my strain anyways, it does next to nothing, and it irritates my kidneys, so for some strains it will do nothing period.  It is criminal that there are vaccines that have been developed that can't get funding from big pharma.  Seriously hate big pharma.

      To save everyone time in translating, the article is about Trivalent and contains nothing “new” to share.  However, fingers crossed on this one :-)
