Lower Back pain Herpes symptom?

8 posts in this topic

Its slightly over a month since possible exposure for me and Im experiencing lower back pain in a small area above my right buttock. I get sharp pains from time to time and a dull painful sensation when I touch it. I know herpes gets into the nerve endings of your spine so I was wondering if this symptom was consistent with the virus and does this mean I likely have genital herpes. Any input would be greatly appreciated thank you for your efforts.

You may or may not have herpes. The only way to know for sure is to see your doctor.

Have you made an appointment yet?

Good Luck,

Angela :wink:

I have had genital herpes for 10+ years and that is not a symptom I have ever experienced because of it.

      That raises the question, do you have HSV-1?
    • WilsoInAus
      Many things can cause that, ringworm etc. What you describe is totally unrelated to herpes. You cannot get genital herpes without genital sex.

      I had chicken pox as a child and am asymptomatic. I also have proof that my shithead ex had it the whole time and lied about it to me, so I'm not holding out hope.

      What can explain the itchiness & shininess of my anus after the event? That kinda scared me.  Thank you you by the way, i was kinda worried.

      @wilsoinaus then i honestly have no idea what it is i have because ive never had any signs that would lead me to believe i had coldsores or oral herpes before a couple months ago when i got really sick. my boyfriend ive had within the last 9 months and hes never had a coldsore pop up,  ive even asked my parents and they dont have a history of cold sores and i never had them when i was younger either, this is all so peculiar. what do you suggest i do in this situation? could i just be an anomaly and my primary outbreak didn't give me tons of blisters but every other symptom?

      Herpes can only infect the area it is rubbed into. No genital sex, no genital herpes. you cannot get oral herpes from sharing drinks or straws. It is a concern that many people have, but it simply isn't the case.

      this might sound silly but do I have herpes?  Im not sexually active or anything but my friend is and she got herpes from a guy so I was kinda worried if I had to share drinks with her if we went clubbing. Me and my friends went clubbing and on our way there we they pre drank, the other girls were passing round the drinks with the infected girl and i was worried because I skied from the alcohol bottle. But the next morning my bum was itching me and i found that weird. When I got home I checked down there my anus and around the area was shiny and itchy so I got really scared thinking that it would be herpes, i know it sounds silly. My infected friend might have had oral herpes as well but can you get genital herpes from drinking from someone else's cup or something because I found that weird.
