Are there any medications for prodromal symptoms?

Recommended Posts

PurpleandGray

Hi everyone, I've been having many different prodromal symptoms such as brain fog, itchy skin, burning in my kegs, swollen glands, fever and tingling. Is there anything that can be done to help relieve some of these symptoms? I've inky had this for 3 months and am still testing negative (igg blood test). I just started taking valtrex daily a few days ago. Will this help? I hope that once my body makes antibodies I'll feel better :( any advice would be helpful. TY!

@PurpleandGray your consistent testing has now confirmed that you do not have herpes.

Your symptoms are 99.9% of the time not related to herpes and you have even now eliminated the possibility. 

It is best to stop taking antivirals, they will have no impact on your issues most probably.

See a doctor immediately for a further diagnosis of your ailments, herpes is not the answer and it is now at the stage where it may be harmful to keep thinking this way.

Please do not fall into the vortex that many here do. In that vortex in you are consumed with symptoms, guilt and fear with seemingly no way out. It is a world in which though that "whether you think you have herpes, or whether you think you don't, you're right!".

Plenty of hope and wishing you speedy recovery.

Thank you Wilso fir your help and advice. I've been reading a lot about the subject and some books and websites say that it may take up to 6 months for the IGG blood test to show positive. I just don't know what else will explain all if this? I saw the sore on the man's penis and had tingling on my mouth, vaginia and butt after the sex. I also had a flu like symptoms that was followed by a major OB

I have an appointment at planned partenthood on Dec. 14th so ill see if they have any other explanation. 

I do appreciate all your help I just don't know what else it could possibly be. :(

The question is more why would herpes explain what you have at all? In well over 95% if cases herpes does as herpes does, causes lesions where the virus entered the body with some localised symptoms that last a few weeks.

I think you are reading stories about long serocoversion periods, again these are rare and fractions of a single percent that pertain to immune disorders. You'd already know if this was you.

Please see a doctor for a diagnosis (not an STD clinic), the internet is no place for a diagnosis to occur as we can only provide vague suggestions at best. However your body is your responsibility and you need to do it temple justice.

Thank you I do appreciate your help. It's just getting so frustrating :( I've been to two separate doctors who seem to have no idea what to do wuth me.  One of them told me to see a dermatologists, I called for an appointment and they're booking into March! I just feel sick and tired and don't feel support from either doctor (which are at two seperate offices).  I hope I can get things figured out soon :( .

I know a person who is negative by bloods and positive by swab after a year. Its possible but also worth investigating other possibilities. If you had no blisters its unlikely hsv

Thanks for the tip Lis. Whatever I have created little Pimple like bumps so they are wkways to hard for the doctor to swab.

Wilso I went through an abusive relationship last year and developed PTSD. I also have Candida. Would either one of those lower my immune system to this degree?

Do you have any suggestions on what type of doctor I should see to consult about possible other issues? I just sent a message to my OBGYN to see if she had any opinions. Thanks

      It should be noted that the Gates foundation was part of a venture capital group that gave Genocea $30 million in support of their vaccine development efforts in the period when their lead candidate was an HSV-2 therapeutic vaccine (GEN-003): https://xconomy.com/boston/2012/10/10/genocea-snags-30m-from-gates-foundation-vcs-for-new-vaccines/ They have also provided 30 million dollars to the University of Washington's HSV efforts.  This time specifically on research into whether suppressing HSV results in a reduction in HIV transmission: https://honeycomb.click/topic/77503-donations-to-fred-hutch-center/page/21/?tab=comments#comment-493474  Far from inactive in HSV research they provide significant funding in the context of reducing HIV transmission.  It's a well established fact that genital HSV greatly increases the probably contracting HIV from an infected partner.

      Human trials starting next year?  Not even close. It will be several years.

      Sounds like X-vaxs' biggest concern is prevention and erradication secondary..... 🤦🏻‍♂️

      It may be small scale but at least it shows me that I'm by far not the only one who isn't willing to disclose to casual partners anymore. The damage for oneself is too high to make it worth it imho: - seduction becomes difficult as guy if they know in advance - you're very likely to become a gossip object if it happens within your social circle - you get abandoned before it even starts to get intense - you end up lonely and depressed after being abandoned for such a reason Still, that doesn't answer the question if it's better to disclose properly out of nowhere during the relationship or wait for the symptoms to appear and pretend to be surprised and fake the doctor diagnosis afterwards. At the moment I think the true disclosure would be less likely to be accepted by the partner, but in case it works it would feel better in the end because there's less of a secret kept in the long run... and of course there's lower moral burden when disclosing earlier because you're handing over responsibility of risk exposure to the partner.
