2 weeks after first OB, Very confused on symptoms

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, so yesterday was my first day off Acyclovir. I was feeling fine since my lesions are gone and I can walk now, I've been eating healthy taking vitamins and what not. Yesterday night I started to have a burning sensation, like when you have a urinary infection and it was also itchy. Let me just mention it was my first time food binging, I had wing stop and in n out back to back. When I got home after my meals I started to feel the burning itch and was so scared to have an OB so I took a spare Acyclovir and took some vitamin D, C, & Lysine. Also cleaned the area with Tea Tree Oil and then it went away. But it was happening for a good hour or so.

Does anyone know what that was all about ? Was it shedding? Signs of an OB? Very confsued

The wrong food can be a trigger. Do you have an ingredient list of Everything you ate, including the spices? How much sugar was involved? Perhaps just too much chemical overload after being conscientious of what you eat. Was there MSG involved? You have no idea how the food was prepared and how old the grease was that food was fried in and what contaminants were in it or anything else.

We are walking chemicals that work together to be us. Throw in the wrong one and things go off! 

This is still very new to your body so your chemicals are trying to work it out. Did you know that sugar stops your immune system from working properly?

@SureWhyNot  I don't have the ingredient list, although I'm sure if I do some research I could find it since its common fast food, however at In n Out I did a lettuce wrap instead of buns for my own sake. But now that you mention the sugar it could have been the vanilla shake I had along with all the old grease. Should have been obvious -__- but I also wanted to test the waters, guess I over did it.

I was just wondering if this could be a sign of shedding, but its too much of a coincidence that it happened right after I ate horribly.

Thank you for your insight, I sincerely appreciate it.

There will be a point when you are not triggered so easily. You were probably not finished your first OB or completely over it so it was ready to begin again. I went through Hell the first few months after contracting this virus. Had lots of recurring OB's no matter what I did. Each body is different. This is why it is important to take note of what does trigger so you can co relate and understand what affects you. Some can eat peanuts, I can't. I can eat chocolate and still drink beer, always have, some can't.

As far as understanding shedding that is the most difficult aspect. I get obvious OB indications now because I am forced into such restricted foods so I can feel it within hours of eating.(not because of HSV, different chemical problem ) Early on I had no idea what was going on, just, bang got one again! I learned what my triggers were. You will too but it takes diligence and looking at what food really is and isn't. I keep it simple, what would a hunter and gatherer eat? (but one who can travel the world for the best choices because everything real is always in season.)

Hate to say this but even lettuce can be deadly in the wrong hands. Unwashed, poor hygiene hands. If you are testing the waters only test a bit at a time so you can make the relations. If you have a mix of things you would have no way of knowing exactly which one the trigger is. Girl loves a challenge eh!

My ND taught me the easiest way to figure out what my body does and does not want. I eat only fruits vegetables and brown rice for 2 weeks. NOTHING ELSE BUT WATER. Then introduce one new thing at a time. If you react, culprit!!! If you are reacting to something within the 2 week time frame then that is where you look.

Processed and fast food take out is not food, just filler!

      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.
