Looking for information


Recommended Posts

Hello! After 15 years of dealing with this crap, I am now feeling desperate for answers so I am hoping that someone out here may have information and new discoveries. My lovely story is that instead of this damn thing burning itself out as doctors state that it should do by my age (now 40), it is back to its horrible state of almost EVERY SINGLE DAY! This is no way to live, so I am throwing myself out here to see what I can learn.

For those of you new to this condition, I hope your journey is better than mine. Be carefull because now as I think back I believe now that I may actually contracted more than one strain of this damn thing. If I compare the original case/outbreak is NOTHING as it is now.. I believe a boyfriend of mine 10 years ago may of in fact had it (which he denied) and made it worse for me. Not only do I have it vaginally, I also have it on my leg! (grrrr...)

In order to begin my war path to help eliminate this from my body I have incorportated the following actions: A month ago I quit smoking, I did a major cleanse (called the Master Cleanse for 10 days .. no food) trying to increase vegetables and just received in the mail the Dynamiclear, plus the recommended vitamins. Also I rarely drink alcohol. If you are wondering I have chosen not to go back on the typical medication because it stopped working after 4 years.. I was on 1000 mg of Famvir everyday.. which worked great, but it stopped working and the other two options don't work for me! My doctor didn't have any suggestions at all.

I am a big believer in holistic medication, so I believe it is possible to kick this thing.. but I am not sure what that looks like yet and I know different things work for different people. If anyone is in the Bay Area and knows of an amazing holistic doctor, please let me know. Recently I heard of one in Lost Gatos that I may go see.. but it isn't cheap.

Anyhow thanks for your time.

Hmm did your doctor?

Does your doctor know you have had herpes for 15 years then suddenly gotten outbreaks everyday? Alot of things can trigger it too there is a list of foods high in lysine all over the web also keeping stress free helps but your body should have plenty of antibodys after 15 years of infection. I would get a platelet count to check your immune system you may have something else wrong triggering it.

Above all else stay calm and relexed meditate some that helps too. "HUGE hugs to you" you must not give up your not alone by far:)

You might want to check out the treatment threads, and also in the "about my outbreaks" section of the forums, you might want to check out this thread: Once a month

There are a lot of lab rats on the boards so you'll be quite welcome. Hopefully the changes you have already made (like quitting smoking) will help boost your immune system... and maybe you'll get some new ideas from the forums.

Also, starphyse has a good suggestion in checking to see that you don't have any other conditions that could possibly be weakening your immune system. Also, hormones can play a big role in herpes, so another area to possibly check/experiment with...

yeah talking to your doctor will help a great deal and if he don't know what to do then you need a new doctor.. not all doctors are skilled in dealing with simplex.

      I had an IGG test  and the ranges were out of range and high  HSV 1 was 42 and HSV 2 was 19 so I guess it was accurate but the problem now is I can't figure out when or who I got it from. In 2018 to 2019 when I was with my ex I was STD tested but not sure if herpes was included but my ex was supposed to get tested but refused. I experienced some trauma with him and didn't date until a year and a half later so I'm confused. The guy I dated after the ex who didn't want to be tested I told them a week ago about my results he was trying to be there for me and understanding,I told him to get tested but to request a herpes blood test , because he had no noticeable lesions or bumps ever is what he said and I never noticed any on him now he has shut down all his social media and I can't reach him. Hoping he's okay, I feel bad because in 2018 I did have what I was told it was an abrasion that tingled but at my doctor the day I was tested they told me it wasn't herpes but I think it was only a visible diagnosis. I keep having it reoccur from time to time

      Hello "FeelingLost".... your fears and concerns are understandable but, nothing you've described regarding the sexual encounter would cause you to contract herpes.... further, your symptoms are not herpes related.  Best of all, your doctor is correct, your results don't show any herpes here.  You can relax.... definitely have your GP take a look at things and see what might be causing the symptoms but, again, none of them are typical herpes related.  I wish you the best in terms of talking to your wife about this encounter.... hopefully she will understand and you both can work through this amicably.  We all make mistakes.... be careful not to beat yourself up too hard over this.... you can become so racked with guilt that you start imagining physical symptoms.  Best of luck.... and take care..... come back to the site if you have questions.

      Hi (I’m really scared and feel really disappointed in myself and worried about my future), I had oral sex with a condom almost 3 weeks ago and a massage parlor. I also received a hand job at the same time prior to putting a condom on, also may have rubbed my penis on her back a little. Did not touch her genitals I don’t recall any sores on her back. After the event she handed me a pice of TP and after I took off the condom I wiped my penis head to clear away the excess ejaculation…this is where I suspect I got infected, she had just gone pee and wiped and maybe touched a sore or something and then I got it on my penis from the tp? Idk. I’m just flailing.   After this I’ve had discomfort on the skin below the head of my penis and 4 bumps for 2 weeks now, the bumps don’t seem to have changed in size. I also had frequent urination for about a week and have had dull pain in my groin on and off. I also have some pins and needles on the sides of my abdomen/trunk that get worse when I go out in the heat or get dehydrated. I’ve had a lot of trouble sleeping, likely due to guilt and shame and worry about the future.   so I got one test done at 10 days from the event (idk know if this can tell me anything… the doctor assured me it was 100% correct and I don’t have herpes. I was not physically examined). I got a full panel std. neg for everything. HSV-1 results: IgG 0.3 / HSV-2 IgG 0.9 hsv-1 IgM = 2.2 hsv-2 IgM = 3.0 (Reference V. Negative: Less than 9.0 Borderline: 9.0 to 11.0 Positive: Greater than 11.0) I have an appointment with my GP on Thursday, hoping he can help. Will likely go to a std testing service tomorrow to see if I can get in an antiviral proactively. Plan to get tested again this week.
