resistant to medication

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I just found out about this forum. It gives me a little hope again.

Here's my story.

I first had the genital herpes infection 4 years ago.

I had my first relapse after 2 years.

Since then it has been constant.

I've been in hospital for a few months because the doctors don't know what else they can do.

I'm out of hospital but take daily 2 times 800mg Aciclovir. Besides I take supplements of vitamins, vitamin C and lysine. I do constantly have little cuts but not as severe as when I was in hospital.

I'm getting desperate as in my country (in Western Europe) they can't help me more than this.

I'm single but 'd love to have a family someday and I'm desperate to find a solution, that's why I am looking for a specialist - anywhere in the world - who can help me with my situation. Where can I find such a doctor?

Thank you for your help.

thx

Thank you.

I'm longing for the first day without any cuts and not feeling tired.

I'm longing for being able to date again ànd having sexual activity with that.

I'm just desperate after 2 years.

I can take one more heavier medication, that's Valaciclovir, but if I do that and I get resistent, there is no solution anymore.

Please let me know if there is any specialist in the world about this virus.

You should definitely try Valtrex. You may need a heavy daily dose of 1000mg. I developed resistance to acyclovir as well. Now, Im on Valtrex and it has worked for almost a year, but I'm developing resistance again. I will have to go back to old school medicine if I continue to develop resistance. I know your pain. I have had a continuous outbreak for over two years. Miserable.... I never slept around and always used protection besides with my three long term partners and I still ended up with this contagious crap. This virus refuses to give up. There is a drug called AIC316 that has had successful phase II clinical trials and it nearly eliminates all outbreaks and drastically reduces the risk of transmission. There has been no evidence of drug resistance in clinical trials so far. The problem is getting it to market sooner than later. Go to the herpes research forum and you will find plenty of discussions about the medication. This is the next best treatment before a cure if you know what I mean. Hope this helps you see a brighter future.

      Ok well the red spots have gone away, do you still have any external symtpoms?

      Looks a bit similar to what I have. People will tell you it’s not herpes because it’s spred out or does not look like herpes, but my doctors are running out of answers/prescriptions to give me. ive had a host of other symptoms never before felt in my body. my tests are negative for now. I had a swab yesterday, but I’m not sure if it was an area that will yield anything. It was more a plea of something hurts, please swab this. its taken me months to get someone to swab me. I recently found out a hospital did not test my blood for HSV even after I requested it. Messed up, huh?

      Ok So I had unprotected sex with a girl about 5 days ago and the day after I had masturbated an abnormal amount for whatever reason. The following day I noticed my urethra and penis had a bit of pain and then I began to have abnormal pelvic pain, though the lymphnodes in my groin area were not swollen or sensitive. After about three days the pelvic pain continued and my urethra soreness continued as well despite my lack of masturbation. I have also had abnormal headaches and my usual lower back pain as an active athlete. No sores or lesions of sorts just a couple of red spots as I had shaved recently before having the unprotected sex and all these red spots are painless and do not itch. I have also had a constant urge to pee. I am on a rollercoaster of convincing myself that I do not have it and then hitting the internet with my symptoms and going into a panic that I could have HSV 2. Am i being a hypochondriac or should I be worried? Thanks guys
