Dizziness and Herpes


Recommended Posts

Do you take antivirals? I got initial dizziness from the antivirals but not from the hsv specifically.

The first few days on antivirals were like being on a psychadelic roller-coaster and the dizziness made me nauseous and sleepy.

I do have hypoglycemia, which is probably it. It just seems that since I contracted this virus, I seem to get dizzy more often than before. Maybe, it is all in my head. I have changed my diet tremendously and I have been exercising more. When I do these things, I feel much better. As for my food intake, I make sure that I eat a balanced meal according to hypoglycemic standards (right amount of proteins, carbs, etc.) and I try to eat every 3-4 hours.

i am glad to hear that you are taking care of yourself; i have battled low blood sugar for years and a healthy diet and exercise always help. actually, i think diet and exercise help everything. i can also tell you that since my diagosis, every ache, pain, twinge i feel, i think, omg, is it herpes or is it in my head? guess this is something most of us go through. hang in there.

      So to begin with, I am 26 and have been with the same partner for 8 years. I have only been with three people ever, one completely protected and the other we were both our firsts. I got this rash on my but while pregnant and my doctor said she was testing for it and I'm so confused. I've had two babies, breastfeed, and never had anything as much as a cold sore. Does this look like something anyone has experienced? I used fragrant soap down there and am hoping it's contact dermatitis or a heat rash from sweating and gaining so much weight.  Advice would be helpful. I'm stressing out a bit as I am pregnant.

      Hi, it is me again, apologies for the recent influx of posts. I've noticed a slightly raised area on the middle of my top lip with what i feel are some bumps. i do have a habit of biting my lips a fair bit and this area is frequented by my teeth. I haven't noticed any unusual/abnormal tingling or burning or pain sensations. the photos are a bit difficult to focus on them but do these seem like the start of cold sores? note: I will be visiting the drs for an std checkup in the coming week. https://imgur.com/gallery/YLVA5us

      To give everyone confidence that it wasn’t herpes related and conclude as the doctor did that it was a dermatitis issue to refer back to the dermatologist to continue with investigations.

      Both a dermatologist and infectious disease doctor prescribed him HSV medicine. Why would they do that if this isnt "what herpes really does"?
