Improvement?

Recommended Posts

Jdk1580

Hello.. I've been posting for about 4 days now. Had a visual diagnosis from the doctor.. Awaiting blood and swab results.. Been in agony for 5 days now.. This morning I have woken up feeling a bit better down below. I can move more freely. I thought this was a big improvement. I'm talking aciclovir 5 times a day. However I'm feeling generally unwell today. Sore throat. Aching neck and full of cold. Looking a bit pale too. Is this normal? Had a blood test for HIV.. Again awaiting results.. Rational Side of me is saying the test was routine but scared sir of me convincing myself every ache and pain is linked to this! I know this is not a site for HIV but keep reading that h and HIV are linked.? I'm petrified. As if the pain I'm in is not enough I'm terrified as well. No reason I would have it bit thought the same about having h. Have to wait until 7th feb for all results and going out of my mind. Anyone else had these worries?

Hi Jdk,

I'm sorry you r feeling this way. 1st the stress won't do you any good, you need to calm down.I understand is hard but stress is a trigger for H. The cold can be a symptom for H.I get a cold before my ob. Also join pain and headaches,fever. Everyone is dif. But those can be symptoms. The meds can have side effect,all meds can. Take that into consideration. I only have meds during obs ,they are too strong for me,make me dizzy,just an example.

I wish you the best

Good luck

Take care

Hello. Waiting is the worst. Are there any places in your area that offer rapid testing for HIv? That's only a thirty minute wait, although it can feel like a lifetime. Usually they are performed free of charge. Good luck

Hey jdk, it is very normal . Many tell me they had and have flu like symptoms. I have had ghsv2 for 25 years now, I'm married almost as many years to a non h man. Your immune system being down or run down can also contribute to you feeling like this. Also from my experience, stresses and anxieties can cause you to feel this way. Get on Vit.b12 complex, it promotes energy and relieves stresses and promotes healthy nervous system. I use sublingual liquid called Natures Bounty. Big white box with big green B on front, I get it from Walgreens. Hope this helps and just relax. Once again welcome to the family, we offer support as well as education on herps. Here is a book www.westoverheights.com , please read all you can. Visual diagnosis is the most least accurate diagnosis. I'm amazed at how little , this day and age, the doctors are so quick to just assume its herps. Take care hon. Truly, Ace :)

Ps. Don't forget the Epsom salts for the bath waters, it helps the sores heal quicker and drys them up quicker.

      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.
