muscle weakness

Recommended Posts

I have wondered about something over the years. I have over all muscle pain. More in certain areas. I know a doctor would say I have fibro. Already been told I have arthritis. I have OB often. By that I mean 1 every 2 months. They don't seem to be as bad as some people describe. Some times are just like an itch but I will get a worse one here and there. I want to exercise but my muscle feel weak all the time. I just wonder if there is any connection with herpes and feeling like my muscles hurt or are over worked all the time. I hate to think what I am going to feel like in the future if things continue to get worse. I have ask my doctor and he doesn't really have an answer. I saw a Rhumetologist and was told I have arthritis. This feels to me like muscle pain. On testing blood work I am positive for 1 and 2. I have never had a cold sore though so not sure if that test is coming from exposure from with mouth to mouth contact or if its herpes 1 in the genital area. I was married 12 years when I had my first outbreak. My husband never had them didn't test positive for it. I know it had to come about before getting married. I never saw herpes or cold sore on anyone I was kissing or having sex with. So I have no idea really how I contacted them. I know now people can carry them and not have an OBs I know that is true. Just wonder if others with herpes have muscle weakness alot and have found it connected to herpes.

I don't have muscle pain but find before symptoms start, I feel really tired...sometimes dizzy for a short time. I do exercise regularly and play a sport a couple times a week. Do you walk regularly?

No I don't walk regularly. I do here and there but not everyday.

I have had Herpes type 2 for 14 years. I have not had problems with muscle pain, but Statins affected my muscles severely & I had to stop taking them. Are you on Satins? Has the doctor ruled out Polymyalgia Rheumatica? It can affect many of the muscles in the body, my mother in law has had it for years.

I was prescribe statins am suppose to be taking them. I didn't because of muscle pain I already have. I didn't want to even change something that might make me feel worse.

I don't know anything about Polymyalgia Rheumatica. I do have regular arthritis my sister has rheumtoid arthritis. I have inner ear problem also makes me dizzy. I do worry about needing to be on statins though. Don't want a heart attack or stroke. thanks

      literally cold sores just make my whole mouth area numb and in pain, especially when i eat food or take a shower. it's super hard too when you are trying not to break open the scab but daily activities tend to make it worse. luckily, i don't get headaches or anything so bless your souls, just a lil runny nose and lots of pain.   i have found some natural remedies/OTCs ease the pain. ice for example always makes it feel more numb, but i have to wait until the scab isn't super delicate.   i made a parody to 7rings by ariana grande destigmatizing cold sores-- give it a chance:) and if you like it, repost with the hashtag #realslimsorechallenge with your own tips to shorten coldsores everywhere! they friggin suck!!!!! we gotta be here for eachother:)
