Hi lady 23 ---

So, were you not tested when you thought you got it 14 years ago?

Do you have printouts of the recent test results?

Or, do you know what type of test kits were used?

Have you ever been tested for any other conditions that might be causing your symptoms?

:wavey:

No I was not tested 14 years ago, I diagnosed myself. I have thrown the printouts away. I went to the public health dep, they said that they did not see anything so they could only take blood. I have not been tested for anyother conditions. thank for replying

actually i just found the printout

If you share what it says, we might be able to give some feedback.

If it lists the test kit used, that could help.

If there are numeric values associated, post those.

Look for index values/reference ranges...and include them if they are there.

Really, anything (other than identifying info), might be useful.

well the only numbers, it says specimen numbers c09v0011584

Right. Not what I was looking for.

You might want to ask the doctor (or laboratory) the exact name of the test kit. Then you might want to poke around to find someone who will use a different IgG-based kit, or even get a Western Blot done.

Also, you might want to talk to a doc about exploring other causes for your symptoms.

      Hello, thank you for your generous donation. I donated on Monday after finding the amazing work that has been done. I got a lot of answers from this forum and I hope more people get involved.  Donation send a great message of the interest that we have for a cure. Thank you and I really believe the cure is in the next couple of years.

      I’m bringing us to 20k; I really believe in the research the Jerome lab is doing and want it to cure everyone.
    • Inevitablecur3
      I think people are discouraged by past failures but remember in failure, new things are learned and the progress on understanding hsv is increasing. Up until Jerome’s lab devised a way to attack the latent virus in 2012 there was never a way to potentially cure it; now there is. Couple in the advancements in technology and I think there’s more hope now than ever that it can be cured in the near future.

      That's actually a comforting statistic
    • Misterx
      Because it is still a non curable threat in community. Whether it's a small group of people who experience the most severe symptoms, they're still people, just like you. Hsv prevalence will only grow due to lack of effectiveness of treatment and eventual resistance of virus. The virus will infect more and more people and this virus will and may affect your quality of life and in some rare cases it may lead to severe complications and blindness, meningitis etc. Last time I checked by 2025, US will have half of its population infected genital herpes. Do you think WOH and health community will like that?
