Leg Pains

Recommended Posts

cbf

Is it normal to get leg pains with an outbreak? Or is this something I should talk to my doctor about? My left leg has been very achy the past few days and I have no clue why. The pain from my ob is going away but this pain is not much better. :(

If it is in the "boxer short region" then it could be h related. If it is further down your leg, it is probably something else. Genital herpes lives in the sacral ganglia nerve system so it can cause pain/tingling in that area.

Yes it's common. At day 9 I got the "phantom pain" on my lower back, gut, and upper leg, ALL on the left side. I think it's the nerves getting tweaked by the virus.

When I had my first OB I experienced leg pain, back pain, pain in my buttocks as well. It burned as well really bad. Cannot say for sure its related but if a few of you are experiencing the same thing, I can only assume. I pray it gets better for you.

      Anyone know anything about potential side effects?

      You obviously can’t read. Why don’t you actually read the article, or the excerpt I posted? Here it is even simpler for you: prostaglandins were shown to enhance the spread of herpes virus in cell culture 26 27 and to inhibit interferon production 27 28 and were implicated in the reactivation of herpetic skin lesions.

      Hormones definitely affect HSV outbreaks according to research. I'm a male but on anti-estrogen medication in constant trouble. Have a look at my thread here: https://honeycomb.click/topic/76903-over-4-years-with-hsv-2-symptoms-keep-getting-worse-with-non-stop-outbreaks-despite-suppressive-therapy-need-help/ 

      First page, 8th post with studies about E2 / Progesterone effects on HSV.

      It's getting pretty terrible now, I don't ever remember the last time I was feeling normal. I'm so sick of this constant flu-like feeling that makes me depressed and very unproductive. I have so many ideas and ambitions for life but I end up just doing the bare minimum due to constantly feeling like shit.  A week ago I tried stopping my anti-estrogen medication if that could have been the cause (it states "infection" in the listed, common side effects). Had my hopes up for a day or two but just got another outbreak this week that makes me want to sleep in bed all day. On top of this, now my breasts hurt because of increased E2 levels. 

      I guess I still have some hopes with new research drugs such as Crispr and Amenalief. I would order Amenalief from Japan immediately, but it costs more than my monthly rent.. I might have to start a business on top of my full time job so I can afford it. Better option than self-pity but extra stress will surely not help with the HSV2 ;)

      Probably the therapy with SADBE helps us to develop a partial immune system on HSV. If you use more SADBE you will develop more immune system on HSV. This is most likely a mechanism of action.
