it all started about 2-3 years ago...me and my boyfriend at the time were at the point in our relationship where we were wanting children together. after a few weeks of unprotected sex I started to develop symptoms. i went to the hospital because i was in so much pain I couldn't walk or move. it was excruciating. ever since then I have became so depressed. me and him just broke up a few weeks ago and im afraid. i really am, i don't know what to do. i feel as if i am isolated from the rest of society, which i know i am not,  i haven't talked to anyone or do any research on what  i even have. i don't know much about it other then the medication is so expensive i had to quit taking it. i am afraid, i am depressed, and i am alone. i am so tired of keeping this bottled up and i just need to have someone who understands what i am feeling to talk to i guess.

      No Western Blot. High positives with both IgG & IgM tests plus symptoms .

      I doubt it is HSV. I agree with them. If anything I would look at other STDs for throat symptoms. Make sure you are clear from everything

      I went to see clinic and she said they only take a swab if I have blisters. She was very dismissive of everything I said - I heard somewhere that GPS don’t do blood tests anymore for herpes cause it was causing significant mental health problems due to being incurable  I’m ambivalent about blood tests as they don’t seem accurate and whatever answer I get there’s still a part of me that will be unsure and will fuel anxiety   i thought it was difficult to get genital herpes in throat?But the flu like symptoms afterwards was nothing I’ve experienced before and happened the day after. Would this be as serious as genital herpes ?    I just find it hard to sit and wait for any bump on my vagina and it’s all I can think about
