Anyone else still get flu symptoms during recurring outbreaks?


Recommended Posts

It seems like every time I have an outbreak my body gets really achy and I'm super tired. It also seems like my body temperature is all out of whack, like it will feel like I have a fever but my temperature is fine. Has this happened to anyone else? I had bloodwork done and my thyroid is fine. I don't know what else to do

So I'm a little over 6 1/2 months into this.  I have hsv1 oral and genital.  My throat would get sore and I felt feverish.   It was really bothering the hell out of me.  And my brain stem/neck would feel warm and I just wouldn't be able to think very clearly.  Not when I take St. John's Wort though.  I think SJW is one of THE most important herbs that anyone who is entering the herpes world should try. 


But now, I don't get the feverishness as much.  My brain stem will feel sensational, warm, and uneasy.  When I get rest it's as if my body is able to subdue it and things are able to cool down.  I was concerned about my temperature, too.  And it was slightly lower.  I do have a predisposition to thyroid deficiencies.


I finally made myself an herbal formula and things are much better now. :)   Life is so weird, I'm so at ease with this and I never thought I would.  I mean, I could complain about it but why?

  • I am 26 and I have had herpes labialis for as long as I can remember, worse than anyone else I have ever met (6 or more episodes per month) I have never been sexually active so it is not a sexually contracted disease. But I remember when I got to the age that my health teachers were teaching about  STDs and there was a giant poster of oral herpes in my health classroom and everyone would look at them and look directly back at me. I was branded a whore before I ever even held a boy's hand. I mean to say that I empathize with you, the people like me who do not have an std but herpes labialis since I was born. I was young and had so many issues but finally I stopped having as many outbreaks but good news: normally the outbreaks stop being so frequent earlier than mine(I was 20 but normally it stops being so frequent earlier than that) I have a really weak immune system. There is hope and you do not have to try and be invisible. F*ck what everyone else thinks and you are better. Please believe me it is not worth the emotional pain and embarrassment .

      Hey @Zrozpaczona9 that looks like folliculitis to me, that’s independent of the question of herpes. The doctor is wrong in the sense that a negative IgG test is beyond reasonable doubt that you do not have herpes. It is a small percentage of people for which a false negative occurs. The doctor is right to take a swab to increase your confidence that there’s no herpes present. I’m sure you’ll have your result soon.

      Hey @WilsoInAus miałam dzisiaj wizytę u dermatologa, gdyż dostałam zmian w pachwinie, w trakcie wakacji nad morzem. Udałam sie tam ze zmianami w postaci strupów. Powiedział ze nie można wykluczyć opryszczki mimo negatywnego wyniku Hsv igg i zalecił wymaz z pochwy na Hsv i inne choroby. Wytłumaczyłam mu że zmiany zamieniają się w strup, ale nie ma w nich płynu, więc zalecił badanie śluzu pochwy na hsv PCR, zastanawiam się czy ma to sens, i czy wirusa można wykryć na podstawie tego badania w wydzielin z szyjki macicy. Z góry dziekuje za pomoc

      In this forum we will discuss does lume work Lume is paraben-free and uses several natural ingredients like Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, tapioca starch, and Maranta arundinacea root powder (also known as arrowroot powder) to control odor and sweat. One of the key Lume deodorant ingredients is mandelic acid, an AHA found in skin care products, which also has an antibacterial effect.

      Ibuprofen medicine is a painkiller. Can you take ibuprofen on an empty stomach  Some people take medicine empty stomach which is not good for our health. Because painkiller kind of medicine is very strong and can harm your liver. Medicine makes many strong ingredients. like Lactose, corn starch, hypromellose, sodium starch glycolate, colloidal anhydrous silica, magnesium stearate, sucrose, talc, titanium dioxide (E171), and carnauba wax.

      Never had a history of Oral cold sores before, but have dated someone with them.  Thats very interesting about the test. This was my first full panel.  The large bumps have recently show up, its been about a few weeks when I noticed them. Again no pain nor fluids from them.
