Newley diagnosed sensitive to nerves and tingling


Recommended Posts

Hi, I was newly diagnosed with hsv2 around a month ago now and I haven't really found that my outbreak has stopped, or mabey they are separate. I just started my 3rd round of valtrex 500mg (twice a day for 3 days). 

Could it be that I'm still experiencing an initial outbreak or more likely it's been my 3rd outbreak (all have been very minor with no painful sores)

i find the one thing that is persisting is I'm very sensitive around my lymph nodes pretty much all the time. It kinda feels like a sore tingling in the skin above them. Also, I have little tingles in my thighs constantly throughout the day. Will these tingles stop or persist even when I'm not having an outbreak? I know I'm lucky with having symptoms on the milder side but I would like to know if anyone has experience persistent permanent nerve sensation because of the virus.

Hi @Littleshocked The first is usually the worst and no two people have the same response to herpes. I too had/have tingling in my thighs. I find peppermint oil rubbed on my lower back helps or aloe vera gel. I've also been to my doc where they've prescribed Gabapentin which helped but didn't permanently stop it. I find the tingles are a permanent symptom regardless of whether I get sores or not. Being active helps and having showers helps too. Some people don't get the tingles often and some do. VitB12 is known to help nerves and St John's Wart but others on this site are more knowledgeable than I am. 


Hopefully you're feeling better by now anyway :-)

Yes, I get the tingles all the time too.  Doesn't mean you are getting an outbreak.  It's more a reminder that the virus is still "awake".

@Scared12345, if you get a tingle once or twice a week, probably not.  If you get them every day, all day long, then I would say yes. I don't really know the answer.:dunno:

      Hi @WhatDidIDo2023, hopefully all is well with you and your significant other and are still together.   Did she develop any other symptoms after you mentioned her getting itchiness? Was it determined what you had was contagious? Most likely developed a fungal disease and caused her a yeast or uti

      Hi @Luna 01 I really feel it is worthwhile obtaining a proper Herpeselect test given the outcomes of the home panel test. Regardless, your current symptoms are almost certainly not related to herpes. Hopefully, your doctor can assist in resolving these.

      I did notice they stoped selling the one I bought it was a 7 panel test for 7 std but now they got the 6 panel and hsv is not on it but they do collect blood and pee and you send in to a laboratory
