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?

      Sort of unrelated, but I remember a few months ago finding new patents filed last year for the einstein college vaccine. I wondered if they were indicative of new developments with it, but I brushed it off as probably not.

      I have not had sexual contact for at least half a year with a partner of more than four years monogamous, one non-protected encounter four years ago different women and then a few more non-protected over ten years ago.   One morning, I woke up after a having bad night time sweats (common) with a bad itch in my pubic region hair on right side about halfway between my penis and belly button. I did not look closely to later that night and noticed a large red rash, but don't believe I looked that closely. At some point I noticed a blister or something and tried to pop it and then walked away, I think being in denial I didn't want to look that closely, so I cant describe symptoms. This was on a Saturday or Sunday. The following Monday I went to work, where I do a physical demanding job al week, I noticed the area that had the rash showed about four areas that were infected (either cut or blistered) and would burn at night time during the week, They were located on my right side, directly where my belt buckle rubs. During the days that work week, my belt buckle would drive and rub in the area ( my buckle is metal square with pointy but not sharpe edges), I tried to pull my pants up and get the belt off the area but that was not always possible. After work that week, I took the weekend and then next two days off of work, the shooting pain evidently stopped and the area after a another week or two looked to be healing.  Week before symptoms: I have been under stress at work and the previous two days before the rash / OB I was working on a boat with another person, we were sharing work equipment and peeing with out washing hands (could he have had it and spread it to me through sharing of phones, equipment if he peed and then touch my phone, then I peed (sorry if stupid question)? My belt could have also been digging into me also, I have been wearing this belt for over a year and never had a problem. Currently, I took a Herpes 1 and 2 test from stdcheck using quest and it came back negative. Symptoms Dec 2/3 test Jan 21, negative results Jan 23. The area in pubic region is still red and appears to be scared but no open sores.   I know it is crazy but with the those symptoms I am still worried. Was that too soon to get a test? Is there any chance of getting if from a co-worker if they have it and touched the same things you did? Would you recommend getting another blood test in 3 months? Thank you for your input.

      Doctors will tell you this, but it's incredibly irresponsible of them, and it's advice that needs to be ignored. You always need to disclose your status before having sex with someone.

      The general public is just really poorly educated when it comes to virology in my opinion. Part of it though is just the fact that there's only so much information a person can remember and care about at one time. However I've always felt like HPV is way more openly discussed than HSV, at least in women's spaces.
