herpes and epilepsy

3 posts in this topic

Can anyone tell me what the relationship between epilepsy and the hsv2 is. I have only been with 1 woman in my life and she has tested negative via blood test for hsv2. I was diagnosed with epilepsy as a child but never given further explaination. Is there any chance my epilepsy and hsv2 which is located on my eyebrow are related. I am trying to figure out how I contracted hsv2 when the only sex partner I ever had does not have it?

There is no relationship between epilepsy and hsv2. There is some information about a possible relationship between it and hsv6 which is another strain of the virus.

Are you sure you have hsv2 and not hsv1? Most people get hsv1 from a kiss from a relative when they are a kid. HSV2 does not like to be around the face but hsv1 does. Do a blood test to make sure what you have.

Come to the "Chat Room", there you will find many nice fellow Herpsters who can offer you their support.

Good luck!

I have epilepsy and no. There is NO relation. They are two different kinds of conditions. One is neurological which affects the brain, and the other affects the nerves in the spine. Absolutely NO relation. I haven't had a seizure in 7 years. And i've been dx'd with HSV2 for only 1 year. Valtrex is KNOWN to cause seizures in some, but I only ever have partial seizures. I haven't had a grand mal in 7 years. Hope this helps.

      We tried having sex few weeks ago after 5 months of abstinence but that sex was quick because we were afraid that I might have an outbreak again.. though, I have not gotten anything from that week-ago sex.

      I cant answer that.  Some people get an outbreak caused by friction from sex you can only try and see how you go

      So even if we have sex again, i won't get any outbreak?

      There is still no evidence to suggest that a diet high in lysine and low in arginine suppressors outbreak but if it does work for you then it's good to do that however it really is trial and error

      A herpes outbreak can be caused by a number of things and in the main it is because of your immune system but the friction from sex can cause an outbreak but any further outbreaks after your first will never be as bad as the first.  You really don't need to abstain from sex if you both have herpes.  It won't cause an outbreak.

      We have been together for 7 months now. The herpes outbreak I had in February lasted for a week. We are planning to have sex again after 5 months of abstinence. Do you think herpes outbreak will come back?

      That was along time ago. If u are not having one now u should be fine. And u both have herpes. How often u get a outbreak just depends. Everyone is different. I'm glad u stayed together. How long have u to dated and how long have u had it.

      Thanks for the advice, I surely will go to doctor, bit I'm pretty sure  that this one is cold stores because they also start to appear around my mouth too, i've got now in 2 different zones of the left face and in my left eyebrow also, I'will wait like 2 ore 3 days if this think will get away himself if not I'm obligated to do a visit a doctor.
