Viral Meningitis?

Recommended Posts

PurpleandGray

Morning everyone. As some of you may remember I've been posting on here about my experience with herpies and how it seems to be much more extreme then others. I'm on Valtrex again right now but last week I had a horrible outbreak which included fever, bad cough, feeling run down, rash and more. I went to the doctor and she said that it's for sure viral but that it's clearing itself up on its own. After doing more research on herpies last night I'm now thinking I may have had viral meningitis. I guess now that we all have the herpies virus in us we're at risk of getting this. Has anyone else experienced this?? I was fearing that since I was so bad I may have HIV but my sexual experience was not risky in that way so I was very confused! Hopefully the viral menigists was it and I'll start feeling better! Please post any advice. TY!

I read the symptoms of viral meningitis include headache, fever, dislike of bright light, stiff neck, nausea and vomiting. Sounds different from the symptoms you describe, , which is fever, bad cough, feeling run down, rash. Only the fever is the same.

If you are afraid you might have HIV you should definitely get it tested!

Ok Thank you! I have a blood test scheduled for Dec 9th which would be the three month mark. My 6 week 4th gen test for HIV was negative so I'm praying bits not that!

      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
