hey everyone. 

i was exposed to an active sore 8 weeks ago and at 3 weeks had what i thought was initial nerve pain. I had tingaling in my butt and to my feet. i think i also have been infected with whitlow because i had shooting pain down my left arm. however there was no active blister that arouse from this exposure. 

i am waiting at 12 weeks to see if i have antibodies. did anyone else have crazy nerve symptoms during their first experience?

i am prettty sure i have it orally genitally and a whitlow due to finger being kissed.

There is zero foundation to any of your concerns. Tingling does not occur with herpes a primary infection before lesions.

No tingling as an only symptom, no. In fact tingling you describe is quite rare and is not the 'tingling' that is often referred to. Tingling is usually associated with the exact spot where an outbreak forms within hours to a day. It feels like maybe a knitting needle lightly jabbed a few times in a spot (everyone will have a slightly different take). That accounts for say at least 95% of what people describe as tingling associated with their herpes lesions.

Yes that is the main symptom of prodromes, there are additional symptoms at times preceding an actual outbreak.

I had my initial outbreak in early october and have had no blisters since then but continue to have tingling nerve pain in the area which hasn't gone away since the outbreak.  Has anyone else had this and I'm concerned I'm still infectious.

I have and always will treat Any itch or tingle as possible prodrome so possibly infectious. I assume the tingle and itch is my body fighting back the virus. Sometimes I win sometimes not so much. 
With this way of thinking I am less fearful of passing it on. Can put a crimp on things but then so would worrying if I passed it on.

I have nerve pain in my tailbone every day as a result of this infection. I'm not sure if it is the virus itself moving around in my dorsal nerve ganglion, or nerve damage caused by my initial outbreak. I suspect it is both. I think itching is a better indication of shedding for me, but I think the assumption should be that we are contagious most of the time that we feel anything at all ie tingling, itching, etc.
