Trying to not feel alone


Recommended Posts

I'm 33 And pretty sure I have herpes.. I can't afford to go to the doctor for a couple weeks .. but have been reading about herpes since I started having problems down there. Im not quite sure the exact date it all started .. but today is the worst !! I feel so sick my whole body hurts especially my rib cage.. it hurts so bad when I pee I want to scream.. and then cry ..

I am scared since I can't see a doctor yet will this clear up on its own or do I have to be on a prescription? Does anyone else have pain in their rib cage? It hurts this is miserable !!!

Hi there, I saw you in chat earlier and tried to chat with you.

Herpes won't cause pain in your rib cage.  So please believe that you probably don't have it.

Why do you think you have this virus?  Did you have sex with someone you now regret?

Have you ever had mono, chicken pox or a cold sore?  If so you already had herpes.  This is just a very common, mostly harmless virus.  

Please don't believe you have herpes until you test positive for it.

Sorry I'm still figuring this site out. I did have mono as a kid.. but  my boyfriend ( who's fairly new) went down on me then a few days later had a sore on his lip and asked if I ever got cold sores.. I don't so I told him no he said he use to get them when he was a kid. I didn't think about it at the time .. a couple weeks later started getting these sores. They are extremely painful  , I feel like I have the flue.. it started with just and has spread to several ..

      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.
