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 :)

      Another company looking to create a vaccine.  http://www.bluewillow.com/bluewillow-biologics-awarded-patent-for-intranasal-genital-herpes-vaccine/ BlueWillow’s intranasal NanoVax platform elicits both mucosal and systemic immunity through its novel oil-in-water nanoemulsion (NE) adjuvant, offering a unique advantage to combat sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including genital herpes. The mucosal immunity elicited by intranasal NE vaccines provides critical protection against infections at the port of entry by which a pathogen enters the body. The intranasal NanoVax HSV vaccine has demonstrated safety and efficacy in both prophylactic and therapeutic animal models for genital herpes. In a prophylactic guinea pig study, the intranasal vaccine prevented genital herpes infection in 92 percent of animals vaccinated. Therapeutic study animals previously infected with genital herpes who received the BlueWillow vaccine reduced recurrent lesions and viral shedding by more than 50 percent compared to animals who received no treatment.

      Cas, This is sooooooo exciting I may need a diaper!  How bout you?  😊

      This is wonderful news!  Impressive dollars raised and the team is absolutely outstanding.  For those who have been dreaming of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation on our side, consider your prayers answered.  William Jacobs and Betsy Herold from Einstein have “sounded” extremely confident all along.  While maybe not just “around the corner” this is amazingly exciting!   If there was ever a person that possibly could be a force in “fast tracking” could it be Mr. Bill Gates?  While it may seem “so far off”, for those of us having been infected for 20+ years or more, it is still music to our ears, and the  glass is always half full-without hope you have nothing.   Never forget this line from Shawshank Redemption:                                           “Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies”.

      Discussion thread on this news here:

      This is pretty impressive for a number of reasons: Average funding for a series A in biotech is around ~$50M but the median is around ~$30M as of 2018 The takeaway then is the XVax is at the higher end of the spectrum suggesting (1) High investor interest, (2) XVax is thinking big A robust set of investors- good to see that there are multiple names here rather than 1-2. Again, suggests robust interest from investors Note that the anchor investor (i.e., the biggest) is Adjuvent who are backed by Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, good to see that HSV continues to be of interest to them (my theory: due to the link with HIV and Alzheimer now)   Overall everyone should be cheering this news given the impressive results seen with animal models. Still remember this is going to be a multi year process- I would hope to see a phase I in 2020
