sore groin muscles

Recommended Posts

HOL11

Hi...I am currently in my first outbreak. It is very painful. A few days ago, when it first started and I didn't know what it was, I squatted over a mirror, but now my groin muscles are killing me. It would be kind of odd if I pulled them, because I can squat like that any day with no problems. I'm wondering of the sore muscles have anything to do with my outbreak? My back hurts too, along with fever, chills, and nausea. Maybe I did pull the muscles though? I don't know, this is all new to me :(

Flu-like symptoms like you describe in addition to sore groin muscles are typical of an initial Herpes outbreak. The sore groin muscles are actually your lymph nodes.

Sorry to hear you are having your first ob HOL11. I just had a very minor second ob and am having (I think) my third. Between the two I had what seems like a small muscle on the left side of my groin (front area, not between legs) that felt sore and kind of tired. It is definitely not groin gland (during my first ob these things got so huge and swollen), it's near it. I have no idea what this could be and where it is the ocnsequence of my 2nd ob or a prodrome to the 3rd.

I hear what you're saying.

Does H infect muscle tissues (as well as nerves) at all?

Certainly, when I run my fingers over my inner thigh, knotted tissues are quite palpable.

Suppose this might be a case of H won't discriminate which cells to invade?

when I first found this out, I felt quite aggrieved, to be honest myself.

I'm not sure how long I had been having this, either.

Its your lymph nodes. Try ibuprofen and that should help with the pain.

Hey Camomile, so I am not the only one with lumps. I just wish there was more concrete info from reputable sources on the virus, so that we don't have to compare our experiences and play the guessing game.

"Playing the guessing game"! Isn't it JUST?

I was also hoping I would be able to find out about the long-term effects on lymphatic system as a result of systemic H. I don't think medical communities had even thought about this much as far as I can see. Whilst I am a lay person, there is bound to be a problem knowing our lymphatic system responsible for immune response.

forgiving1, it is not my lymph nodes, I know where those are and what they feel like.

Letsnotobsess,

Sorry i just figured they were lymphs but now I'm wondering if I'm experiencing the same thing as you. Is it your thigh area? I know one side of my thigh was achy when I was feeling an outbreak but I never did get any sores. I just get achy usually when I'm about to come on my cycle. I think this is normal.

I noticed that when my lymph nodes were sore, I walked a little different, and I actually made my leg muscles sore by walking different.

I have an OB at the moment and each time my groin swells up and is very sore to touch. Uusally after the redness and the itching about the same time as the blister is appearing. It just another tell-tale sign or confirmation for me that it is indeed another outbreak. I am likely and just pop some painkillers and ride it out, but I do try to rest a lot more and get some early nights in.

hope this condition is recognized properly by the medical communities.

what you say, is exactly the same as mine. I also get crippling fatigue at the first few days.

You probably need something to soothe the sore as well.

Incidentally, I get red, angry looking sore throat at the same time.

Sore groin muscles is the main symptom I get. That plus painful urination. I would say based on my personal experience that is what you have there.

      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 :-)
