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!

      No I’m sorry the only person that needs to be reported is you. Your posts are unacceptable by societal standards, that’s plain to all readers. Your damage to people with HSV is reprehensible. The only person bashing is you, until your attitude changes and you grow up, there is no place for you on this website.

      Okay,  here's an update... the new site that was bothering me this morning looks clearer and is no longer raised but it's still red.  I've started using tea tree oil mixed with coconut after someone suggested it.   I didn't take an extra dose so I don't know if it was the oil or the medicine.   I'm driving myself nuts with all of this.

      @WilsoInAus 

      The truth of the matter is that you have no idea what you're talking about.  You seriously have issues trying to tell someone about how they suffer, what their test results are.  You apparently suffer from HSV-1 oral based on your profile and you're here for who knows why...sure you must suffer a lot or possibly none at all.  Either way most of the population is okay with someone have HSV-1 orally.  HSV-2 Genital & Oral is a different ballgame for obvious reasons. 

      You think that by my symptoms which include 5 oral lesions since exposure and test results aren't good enough.  I don't need to post my results online to let the world see.  In fact I am done explaining myself. 

      THIS IS A SUPPORT COMMUNITY NOT A BASH COMMUNITY. YOU THINK IT'S OKAY TO BASH PEOPLE FOR LORD KNOW WHAT REASON.  You attempt to manipulate my character with your slander of my character.  The only person proving them self of poor character here is yourself.  

      I have reported you. You have no reason to be here, you are the classical keyboard warrior-troll. I have every right to be pissed off and trust me if I could. I would beat the shit out of you, bc you need lessons learned.  You're alien trying to tell another human being his/her symptoms and feelings.  FUCK OFF. I will never reply to you again. I don't care how much you try to stir the pot. You have lost all credibility and you have nothing better to do than try to demoralize other people. You're a shitty human being.

      @Tone123 could of points. A person with genital herpes is already infected through their entire genital area as marked out roughly by a pair of boxer shorts. Once your immune system is in full swing (a few months from infection) then further infection of the same type, regardless of any sub strains, is of negligible chance.

      You can have HIV for many years without developing AIDs, if that is what you're asking.
