What does the 'tingling feeling' feel like?

Recommended Posts

Really paranoid.

  • :sad:

I read that theres some tingling feeling that happens before you get an OB and now its in my head and it seems like I'm always tingling down there.

Do later OB always hurt?

Do they bleed at all?

Will I know for sure if I'm having one?

Thank you anyone out there who can help put my mind at ease.

Hi there,

I think its different for every person. The tingling for me just kind of feels like someone is tickling me with a light feather. Just mildly annoying. Also my first OB hurt so badly I was in tears for about 6 days straight. It didn't itch though. The 2nd one didn't hurt at all but itched a lot. I personally have never had bleeding with my outbreaks.

But like I said everyone is different. I ordered something called HSV zero and its helped out A LOT. Its just a topical treatment, very natural. You put it on when you feel like an OB is coming. I did this constantly and it eased my OB very much. It actually stopped the 3rd one from happening.

Just my 2 cents :)

'Tickling me with a light feather' That sounds rather nice put that way

Will try that cream out once I get to know what my tingling feels like.

Thanks for the advice :D

I compare it to feeling like I have a sunburn under my skin. Once you have had it for a while, you will learn to recognize it. Good luck

It feels like a sunburn to me, too. That's a great description, wastedhousewife!

      No it’s not a fact at all. How can it be a correlation if it happens no more than chance? Remember 70-80% of people using PW have herpes.

      Hello! Thanks so much for your reply. I was told (and believe) I have HSV 2. They told me that on the phone; it was confirmed through swab. I have never taken a blood test or been tested for it otherwise. I've read mixed reviews about HSV1 providing protection-- because some studies seem to allude that it does. If this is true- it makes sense because I never had chicken pox or HSV1 in my entire life so I think it explains why I caught HSV2 from a one night experience (just my luck and just my own theory) Although I still experience twitching in my body -- I feel happy that the valtrex every other day suppresses it. But I do wonder, because I'm experiencing such reduced symptoms; if my shedding is reduced too. I doubt it but just a thought.  Anyways - I can live with condoms but I don't want to.. so I'm hoping for some guidance

      This is no great surprise that HSV is pushed back in ExcisionBio's pipeline.  I'd be surprised if it isn't pushed back again. The chart they put out is painfully uninformative.  Sloppy.  And that's a red flag in and of itself. My guess is that those arrows are progress rather than efficiency, but it's not completely clear.  But if a scientific company can't get this chart right, then I really wonder what other mistakes they are making. I don't have a ton of confidence in this.  But we'll see.  I'm glad that it seems they are trying to do something.  I think CRISPR could be a solution to HSV (some kind of solution).  But I question whether it will be ExcisionBio that makes it in the end.

      Good to know.  I don't think this is a listed company, but from what I've read, they've gotten decent funding.  Around $70 million.  Most of that probably won't go to HSV research, but it's good they have some money. By comparison, ExcisionBio has raised $10 million.

      The fact that Admedus is farming this out, kind of tells you it's a long shot at best.  It's good that it hasn't been abandoned.  But I'm doubtful much will come of this.  But maybe new knowledge about what doesn't work will come, and that's always helpful.
