Lower Back and Tail Bone Pain?

Recommended Posts

animallover90

Not sure if anyone else gets this but during my first outbreak it hurt to sit down. Like I had been sitting for hours and my butt was sore from it. I haven't had anymore outbreaks other than becoming very tired and some redness and tingling but I still get faint pain in my left hip/lower back area along with my tail bone being slightly sore. Does anyone else get this sort of thing? Also I feel like I am tired so much of the time. And it is usually before I get the redness downstairs. Is this also normal? I am just thankful that I do not get the horribly painful outbreaks like some people do. My heart goes out to them...

Yes that is my prodrome symptom letting me know an outbreak is going to happen!! The pain in my legs and butt and lower back were very painful hurt to sit hurt to walk ect!!! Taking day antivirals helped get rid of that intense pain.. Although I get it faintly still when the virus is active on my skin,, herpes in the genital area runs along ur nerve paths from the waist down.., that is the reason u are feeling those pains..keep in mind when this happens more than likely even if u just get redness the virus is active on ur skin And is most likely contagious at this time!!

Ah, ok that makes sense now! I figured my symptoms were normal but bein the hypochondriac that I am I wanted to be sure I was not the only one! Thank you for replying. Do you get really sleepy durin your prodrome also!? I feel like I could sleep for 13 hours and still wake up groggy! It's the worst. And it only happens before the redness stage for about a week.

I will have to try the B-12 and Vitamin C. Currently I just take Vitamin-D an L-Lysine. I don't really notice a difference but I don't get classic or severe outbreaks so maybe it is helping more than I realize?

To be honest, I was told when first diagnosed, and I now agree 110% that "anything is normal" during your first o/b. Everyone has different symptoms...I found though that mine went through stages - the sores and pain, then intense itching, then the aches and pains and then nerve pains in my lower back/psyatic nerve...they lasted the longest. I don't remember being super tired but I'm tired a lot of the time normally so maybe I was and didn't realise it :) I guess when your body is fighting a virus you're going to feel tired anyway as it would be tough when you haven't got the antibodies built up yet! Hope you're starting to feel better now.

BV.

I totaly agree! I am not as tired as I used to get anymore. My first outbreak was back in August, so you're right my body probably still hasn't created all the proper antibodies just yet. I have gotten more used to it though and now it's more like I am just a bit groggy before breakouts or during. I just get worried about the littlest things sometimes and then start to wonder if it could be something worse but I try not to think about it too much. Thanks for your reply!

      Just read how Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez helped raise $340,000 for transgender youth. https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/alexandria-ocasio-cortez-casually-joins-171241889.html It sure would help if we had some celebrity or public person champion our cause. Maybe that should be our focus, to reach out to public persons and try to enlist them.  All it takes is a tweet from the right person.

      Dr. Iwasaki is definitely deserving of funding. I'd love it if we could do a fund raiser for her. I guess at the moment we are already doing the Fred Hutch Center.

      Hi, I’ve had HSV1g for 4 years and only ever had my first and only breakout. I’m super thankful for that. I still hate disclosing as it sets off alarms. Finally met a guy I really really like and disclosed last night to be clear about why I’ve been hesitant to be intimate.  We have for sure kissed and after telling he was in a panick about us having kissed. I’ve never ever had cold sores and have never passed it to anyone. Again in 4 years only my first and only genital HsV1 breakout. I’ve always been told kissing for me was fine....Can anyone help clarify? I’m resllt struggling as I like this guy a lot and hoping he can look past it.
