Confused...symptoms strange...

Recommended Posts

Newtothis42

Hello, I am farily new to this. I may have had herpes for a long time and not even know it. I started dating someone after my divorce and before we became sexually active we agreed that blood tests were important. He had genital herpes without breakouts in years. Turns out I was positive too. The blood test confirmed it was not a new infection 2 years ago. I think the symptoms for me must have been close to nothing inthe past. However today I have all kinds of symptoms and feel horrible.. Not sure what to do. Can't believe I am writng this. Feel like I just want to stay in bed until this all goes away... sad and feeling sorry for myself. I'm sure all will be better soon. ....

Hi New and welcome. I'm sorry you are going through this. When you tested were you positive to both type 1 and type 2? How about your partner?

Hi thank you for the welcome. Still not sure how these threads work so ... I was diagnotsed with genital herpes (not sure if that's 1 or 2) and completely surprised. I'm sure my symtoms are not bad compared to others. And I reallyl shouldn't complain. it's no worse than a bad flu plus alittle extra kick! I think it's just the mental part that stinks... My boyfriend told me right away when we met and I was fine with it. Sounds strange that I'm not fine with my own herpes.. I don't even want to call my doctor tomorrow to see if there is anything to assist the symptoms... uhhhh. Guess I really need to though.

Well, it was nice of you to welcome me. Have a Happy Day tomorrow!

I'm glad your symptoms aren't horrible. I think it would be a good idea to know your status and his as far as type and location. So many possibilities here. RealisticGal is a wonderful contact and can give you some good advice. I would message her and get some clear information on where to go from here. I think it would be wise to be evaluated by your provider asasp for a swab and culture to see what you have going on. I know it's frustrating but you seen like a strong, logical gal. Keep asking questions. Folks on here have a wealth of experience and good advice. You are not alone! Hugs to you!

Thanks for the kind remarks. I will look for RealisticGal also. Trying to get squezed into the dr today. Meanwhile, he is the one that didn't even diagnose me correctly after I complained of symtoms for weeks strait in the past. Now I know what it was. Hoping this feeling of soreness all over goes away soon. Not motivated to even work today and that is not like me! Hope all is well on your end. Back at ya with the hugs! It's nice to know I am not alone even though it feels that way sometimes with this. Have a Great Day!

      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!!!
