The Neurological problems...

Recommended Posts

Before and After

If I had any idea that herpes causes neurological problems, I would have taken greater measures to protect myself. I was of the impression that I had about a 4% chance a year of contracting the virus given precautions that I was taking. That seemed like a reasonable risk for a genital pimple that showed up in a minority of patients.

Although I have not gotten tested yet, I honestly don't know what else I could have. Aside from blisters, I have all of the other issues that everyone here is talking about. Really, what the hell else causes painful groin lymph nodes and burning sensation down to both knees?

Furthermore, I wonder at my prospects for a future relationship. Even if someone were to agree to be with me, I don't know how I could knowingly ask someone to bring this upon themselves.

I feel like a leper.

Hey Before and After, welcome to the site. First things first, please go and get tested to determine if, in fact, you do have hsv and which type. If you do have it, then you need to educate yourself on how to live with it. Take a look at the forums and articles. There is plenty of information here to help you along and some really great members to learn from. More importantly, you are NOT a leper. If you have it, you are a person who has a virus that produces cold sores. You are still the same beautiful person; herpes can never change that.(:
