Worst Pain of My Life!!!


Recommended Posts

I just found out I have herpes yesterday when I went to my gyno for the pain. She gave me valtrex but NOTHING for the pain. i am using ice packs but they only releave the pain when I keep them on. Pain meds like advil and tylonol don't even numb it a little bit. I can't sit down unless it is on an ice pack. I scream every time I go to the bathroom. I had to sit through 4 hours of classes today trying to keep the tears from streaming down my face. I am scheduled to work tonight ( I am a cocktail waitress) but I called in and told them there is no way I can be there. My boss says that if I can't get one of the other girls to fill in for me then I no longer work there. I couldn't care less about my job, I just need this pain to subside!!! I need advice. Please help me!

Hi hun,

Sorry your doctor didn't tell you how to deal with the pain.My advice is to stick with the ice packs as much as you can and take the Advil or Tylenol and see if it works at all.

Oh yeah...peeing is tough when you have an outbreak!I was told by a nurse to drink TONS of water to make the urine less acidic.Avoid eating or drinking anything that will make the urine more acidic like caffiene and citrus fruit or juice.

When you need to pee poor some warm water over yourself.I'm not sure where your sores are exactly,but what I do is lean forward a bit so there is less chance of the pee touching my body and the sores.

I like to have a warm bath with a bit of baking soda in it and have a nice soak.NO bubble baths or soaps in that area.After my bath or shower I dry the area with a blow dryer set on low.This seems to make some of the pain subside.

Also wear loose fitting cotton underwear and loose pants that don't rub the area to much.

Hope that helps!!

Thank you so much to responding to my post. The hair dryer and baking soda bath really did help! This web site is awesome! I don't know what I would have done without it!

I'm glad you found some relief!! Yeah I found that the doc I saw (not mine) really didn't give me any info about herpes at all.She just said you have to tell our partner befor you have sex...thats all really!! Most doctors will tell you the techincal things about it but not the really helpfull things that are usefull to us.

      Hey @JS.245 and welcome to the website. The pictures aren’t that suggestive of herpes. Hard to tell from the pics what’s going on, but that could be a number of things. Are the larger bump bubble things persistent? What you have in the pics is hence independent of your herpes status.  The test results are inclusive - most people test over 5 if they are infected.  Do you have a history of oral cold sores?

      Hey, just got a STD test a while ago after noticing these showing up at the base of my penis, but its been about 5 months since I was with someone and now these are showing up. It doesn't hurt nor do I have any other symptom that I know of. I'm trying to see what's up before I go to the doctors because I don't have insurance and I'm very anxious about the situation. the std test was expensive as is.

      Just another set of supporting articles to a potential release date in 2024 giving hope to sufferers whom the standard of care is currently worthless: Promising Progress in clinical trials for Pritelivir (herpescureadvocacy.com) HSV Treatment Readies for Approval — Precision Vaccinations News

      I have not found a cheaper source for Amenalief, and I've searched high and low. I have a thread called "Pritelivir at Last" you may want to follow as I have a strong belief that It may be available to the public in the summer of 2024 and as I find new info, I update the thread immediately. Now, may I suggest a combination of drugs that several others on this forum have found to be very effective over acyclovir alone? Myself and others have found that taking 40mg of omeprazole (Tagamet @dissolvedo2 ) with 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the morning and 1 gram of Valacyclovir in the evening alone for 3 days have had profound effectiveness at stopping outbreaks in their tracks. I'd like to remind you that I am not a doctor and at best I am personal researcher for what works for me. I @lw@ys share my findings with the forum in the hopes to help others alleviate their suffering. There is another drug combo that I have tried myself as well as others on this forum have tried and that I personally feel is a much more effective for myself. This combo is 1 gram of activated charcoal with 1-gram of valacyclovir in the morning followed by 1 gram of valacyclovir in the evening alone, again for 3 days. I have found that this has reduced my outbreaks to almost only once a year and they are mild at worse. Again, just a reminder that this works for me and may not work for you but I always feel that i have to share this with anyone that cannot get this virus under control so I hope my findings can help those of you who cannot achieve relief with the standard treatment alone. The stronger anti-virals come with risks and if I can help anyone avoid those risks then by all means I feel I have done some good in this world. I only ask that you let me know if either of these suggestions work for you so that I can document it in my notes. Good luck my friend!
