      Hey @Aubrey77 these symptoms are not something that oral HSV-1 can cause. In the end herpes would do what it does best and this is cause a sore somewhere on the lips . It might tingle a little as it forms, be inconvenient as it blisters and then crust as it heals and all look a little unsightly. But that’s herpes.    No reason to disbelieve your doctors thoughts on your issues.

      Any feed back is welcome. I get these small bumps inside my right cheek. They do not hurt or burst. They just come and go. I showed them to doctors and the say they come up with stress and foods. Problem is I have pain and muscle spasms down right arm and in legs. Are these all ongoing issues for getting virus? I am not sure was going on with my body anymore

      Update: met with PCP Friday to get a referral to neurologist. During the discussion he discussed my low white blood cell count from a test I took in February. My count is/was 3.61. I asked him if that could be contributing to slow development of antibodies. He didn’t really react to it much. With that said, I did take another IGG test Friday which came back negative. I’m at week 12 post suppressive therapy and week 14 total without taking AVs. I emailed Terri Warren to see if she feels I need to wait longer to take the western blot to allow my WBC to increase and/or allow antibodies to develop. I want to use the WB as the final step in my testing journey and I don’t want to have to question the results.    Anyone have any experience or knowledge of someone with low/lower WBC and how long it took them to seroconvert?

      Does anyone know what the side effects of pritelivir are?  Has anyone on this site actually tried it?

Hi Skitta! Welcome to the site! :wavey:

There's a lot of folks on this site from Toronto :) Toronto also has a local support group that holds monthly meetings.

Hi Mel. Thanks for the welcome!

Feeling especially vulnerable right now after being recently rejected by a woman. Would be so nice to connect with someone who has gone through a similar situation.

Hi. I feel your pain, but I've been accepted by a great woman as well. I'm not from Toronto, but I'm not very far either.

Hi Tia...That's awesome you've been accepted by a great woman. Gives me hope :) I'm trying to be strong. Everything happens for a reason.

I'm actually going through a tough breakup with my son's dad. But I have friends that are there for me, and I do have a woman who is accepting of all of this, and she is non h, but only because we have a past and she has other friends with h which makes it easier for me since she is educated on it. But telling her was really hard for me. I'm always here if you want to talk :)

That's what I wish for Tia, to meet other people (personally) who have h or who are at least educated about it, like your friend. The woman I was involved with did some 'research' and I guess some of the information I told her did not match with her research. I would have never intentionally hurt or expose her to this virus. My knowledge and experience comes from 30+ yrs of living with this virus. That must count for something. I'm just really disappointed, and hurt, how things turned out with her. Oh well. This too shall pass! :)

True enough. I found out after I had a child with my bf, and when I had thought about it I realised I had it the whole time. He wasn't very accepting at first, and then after a year it was kind of brushed aside, but whenever we fight he throws it in my face and makes me feel like shit all over again.
