Outbreaks and subtle issues along spinal column

Recommended Posts


Tested/Confirmed with HSV2 for 25 years (donated to me in college)

I have tested for other STD's and such and the panels/tests come back clean.

I didn't notice anyone commenting on outbreaks at each end of the spine, so thought I would share my experience with you.

During times of high stress, an outbreak is almost certain on either side of my tailbone. Very intense, pain in hips, single location on either right or left of the base of my back (at the point where the separation of butt cheek starts). Comes on in a day and lasts in earnest for a week, but takes a month to heal to a hard bump, and typically three months to visually disappear.

In all cases of outbreak, back or genital area, my legs hurt and that is the telltale sign of an impending visit from the unwanted friend.

In other cases, I will have itching on either side of the spine at the point between the top of my shoulders. No outbreak, but after many years, the old unwanted friend is fairly familiar and I know what it is.

I find it quite interesting that a disease that is marked by genital/oral contact can pick new places to emerge. I happen to believe that there is still a great deal we don't know about the 'potential' behavior of this virus. My belief is confirmed by my experiences and by the fact that the medical community is still even trying to figure out how to stop even the basic cold virus.

Best luck to all with this unwanted friend.

      I believe it’s type 2 but apparently either strain can be found either end! So I will hopefully clarify all this in the coming week!

      @WilsoInAus https://forums.herpesopportunity.com/topic/8577-unprotected-sex-and-transmission-of-hsv2-with-no-symptoms/ Here they say we can shed the hsv2 virus up to 35% of the time. We are far from the 4% transmission rate. That rate is not for everyone. So if i always have prodome and i shed more than others my transmission rate is a lot higher than just 4% so please stop spreading false information.

      Unsure whether this is something to be worried about or not. Coming up to 3 weeks now. I’ve been to a sexual health clinic and they said there’s nothing to worry about. I haven’t had sex in 6 months I’ve also never done it without a comdom. There is no fluid in them even when I’ve tried to squeeze them. There’s also 2 of them near my belly button
