symptoms of GH recurrences

Recommended Posts


I been reading this forum for a while now and other herpes sites and have gathered and learned a ton of stuff.

Question: Do you still get the symptoms of the primary outbreak in the recurrences? for example, the things like flu like feelings and other things besides just the painful sores.

I'm pretty sure i had my first outbreak which was pretty mild, still getting the tests done but i wanna know what are the most 'pain in the ass' symptoms in recurrences over time.

I'm on my second ob since my primery which was four months ago. The primery was terrible. Pain, tingles, burning, discharge, blisters and sores. My second one all happened in one day. While the first started as a small cut and turned into mulitple blisters and lasted for a few weeks with meds.

Since then I've been confused about the signs. thinking all the time I was on the verge of another. But I can now confirm my official second ob. I Had burning, tingling and pain. But so far has only produced one teeny tiny hard blister. But the Podrome pain only lasted the one day and the blister showed up. Actually when the blister showed up the pain went away. So far extremely mild and nothing to be much bothered by. Bummed I have an ob but relieved it is so mild. Haven't taken anything though I had valtrax on hand. Problem was I hid them so well so no one would find them that it took me till the next day to find them.lol... so I figured too late now. I'll have to see how long this one last.

On the pain scale though this is a 1 compared to my primery ob.

      Yeah and the stigma hit me pretty hard since I'm originally from Asia and we don't have sex ed or STD education so the regret and self-hating are as bad as stigma. Hoping is the only way to get me out of suicidal thoughts. I know that a lot has been done and I'm glad. I just hope they continue with the hsv research instead of abandoning it cuz it's not life-threatening and I also hope that the big pharma conspiracy isn't real.

      @Dvm, he says this to almost everyone.  Best ignore his bad advice

      Thx so much. However HSV can affect the trigeminal nerve/from post herpetic neuralgia and can actually cause all these symptoms. Some people, once affected can have short term symptoms,  while others have sporadic flare ups and some are permanently affected. Gabapentin for trigeminal neuralgia, prescribed by my neurologist, did help me for some time,  but I'm glad to be off it.  Hope my post helps someone w similar issues who havent gotten help from primary care Dr.

      @Dvm you can be assured that HSV is not the cause of these issues. As you have found, it’s likely a spinal issue and it sounds like you have found some help. Stick with that.
