nerve pain


Recommended Posts

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 tingaling with primary?

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.

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.

      @WilsoInAus do you really thing that above my symptoms are Herpes related? Or it may because of Herpes zoster shingles? Bcz of this my Igm is positive?

      @WilsoInAus i requested my partner, but they are refusing from testing and saying they dint had any symptoms. Now the only way i left is to wait untill 12 weeks window period right? I am not getting what to do in this case. Any suggestion for any other tests?

      Hi "Jeremy"..... I agree, the topic of your HSV status does not need to be something you disclose too soon in a developing relationship..... get to know each other first....see how it's going and as it progresses, then the HSV issue will naturally need to be revealed.... it's my personal opinion though that before there is any sexual encounter you ought to disclose your HSV status.... I know some will disagree with me on this but, I think it is morally wrong not to disclose first.  This can be a make/break situation for most people but, again, I feel it is simply wrong not to give the other person the whole story since your decision not to disclose could put their health at risk.... that is simply not an option in my opinion.  Looking back to my "pre-HSV" life I most certainly would want my partner to disclose their HSV+ status before intimacy so that I could make my decision as to whether I want to take that risk or not....

      Thanks, CHT. I appreciate the feedback. The whole trauma of going through this has led me to figure out a lot about myself and my attachment wounds, so I'm taking courses to come out of this better. This girl really was my dream woman in so many ways, it's been the hardest heartbreak to deal with ever. I'm truly in a lot of pain, but using the pain as fuel to launch that new business and work with coaches. I also opened up to my family about HSV, so my parents and sister know now, and they were very loving and accepting of it. Since opening up about it, I feel way better around this thing. After opening up, I also found out that some mutual friends in our family have discordant couples who are married with children, so HSV hasn't stopped them from living a loving life. The thing is... all of these couples I mention did not disclose until 6-8 months into the relationship. So now I'm thinking it might be better not to disclose until I know things are very serious. I'll of course stay on the medication and use protection, but maybe this is a better route than disclosing upfront and scaring women off.

      Hey @Lcj987 and welcome to the website. You can be sure that isn't HSV-2, looks nothing like it. It is much more likely to be folliculitis or inflamed fordyce spots.
