I just found out 3 days ago...

I am a 30 yr old man who resides in Orlando Florida. I had no symptoms but took a test anyways. As soon as the test came positive I started feeling symptoms. Maybe it was all mental but now it's just getting worse and worse. I feel tingly and slight pain in my anal and genital area. I have a Dr. appointment tomorrow with my local physician so I hope she prescribes me some meds. I have nobody I can trust to tell except for my brother but i do not want to tell him yet. Still figuring out how I am going to do that. Long story short, I would love to talk with someone about this and hopefully boost my morale as I don't know how I am going to cope with this. Feel free to contact me.

Hello,

I am so sorry you are going through this. What made you decide to be tested? When was your last sexual encounter? I know you are scared and anxious. The mind can play tricks on us at times too. I understand where you are and may not be the best person to tell you this, but....we will be ok...no matter what.

I decided to be tested for piece of mind. Scared, anxious, and I can't deal with this physically and emotionally. I hope I will make it through this.

So your test result was positive and now you feel symptoms? Do you know your actual numbers?

You're doing the right thing by being seen right away. What type of symptoms are you feeling? When did you last have sex?

Last had sex about 2 1/2 to 3 weeks ago. I feel discomfort in my groin area, anus, and thighs. Tingling sensation and just noticed my first blister in my ass. I'm done for. This sucks.. What about you? Oh, and I appreciate you talking with me. Seems like all I'm doing is hitting refresh, awaiting your messages.

I know it's tough. I have had symptoms for months though perhaps not classic symptoms so have had quite an ordeal. Being seen early is very good as they can give you meds while you await your swab results. I know it sucks. The anger, anxiety and depression can be a killer but you will be ok. I read many posts of people who have been through the same thing and, though it takes awhile, they work through it. I am assuming your test was an HSV2 igg test.

That is the standard test. I think it's pretty relaible. I know it is consuming your thoughts right now. Are you able to take a couple days off while you get your treatment started? I really think it's best to go to work and do all your normal activities as soon as possible. I have had alot of trouble with that myself but am pushing myself to do it. Freaking out is normal. Don't be sorry. I have been there and still am occasionally. Try to eat and rest if you can. Your body will be stronger and better able to fight.

yeah she will more than likely prescribe you meds asap. I understand what you are going through. Sometimes your mind makes things worse. OB's do not last forever, they may come and go but you will learn to live with it, eventually you will get used to it and forget about except when the OB's come around. If you did not have any symptoms then why did you decide to get a test, did you suspect the girl to have something? good thing you got checked. Good luck to you. you will be fine.

Yes, I was with a girl and wanted to be sure. I went to my doc today and she said I was not having an outbreak but have had it for a while. She said since I'm healthy, dont drink/smoke, work out, eat right, vitamins etc that I may never get an ob. It's just crazy bc yesterday I couldnt get outta bed(depression?) and today after the dr i went shopping, cooked, cleaned and did normal things. So weird. Thoughts?

      Who knows if I have had further testing since whatever post I made however long ago. Oh that's right, I know, and you don't, you ignorant fuck.

      I’m also in the same boat. The skin below my pelvic glands is red and rash-like or little red bumps show up for a day or two. Constant itching down there and on my scrotum. The entrance to my anus is itchy all day. Every doctor that has looked at it has seen nothing to be concerned about. Tingling on my lip, tingling in my left arm and hand, tingling in left foot. Tingling in my left thigh, full pain in head of penis. Girl I was seeing also has itchiness in her vag and the lip tingles. I get little cuts on my penis for no reason. Never been swabbed or taken theWestern Blot. So far, after 5 months since suspected contact, I’m IGG negative. this all happened soon after having sex multiple time with someone.

      This is coming very soon.  The chat we had was great but crashed the site each time.  We've researched lots of options and hopefully we are close. Thanks for your patience! Shenda

      Hi guys, I have been making myself crazy googling. So i decided to ask people who know. My 28 year old daughter just told me that she has hvs1 for the last 4 years. She had a swab test days after first outbreak, it came back positive. She was also having a psoriasis outbreak. 6 months in a blood test came back negative, 1 year in another blood test negative. My daughter also suffers with psoriasis and ibs with is linked to the psoriasis.  There is also genital psoriasis that looks like the herpes virus. So does she have it or not...I looked up so much on google but things are conflicting to say the least. I am hoping to get some insight here. Thank you all!!!
