Some flu like symptons are common. I get headaches and muscle aches before. But when you feel sick or run down. Because your immunity isn't as strong it can result is a sore. As for all your symptoms. Just to be safe. I'd see a doctor. Im not a medical professional but it sounds like something bigger.

I would agree, an established cold sore infection would not result in these sorts of symptoms. Other ailments can weaken the immune system as mentioned and a cold sore emerge.

I had a bad headache and was not feeling well (but was sleeping and eating as normal).  Not sure if HSV1 causes the problems or the other way around.  Not sure if anyone knows that.  I know that I had a tremendous headache.  HSV1 causes a lot of discomfort for me.  One little cold sore.....   At least the last one was gone within 10 days

This virus is linked to your immune system so you are more likely to get the outbreak when you are not well or stressed.  The outbreak would not cause the symptoms it would be the other way around

I’m not disavowed with HSV,  but I share symptoms with people on this board. Over the past few months I’ve has problems with fullness in the ear, headaches, nerve pain, and damage to my eyes. Eye doctor thinks it’s HSV, but I need an eye swab to be sure.

Hang on that’s not the case. The doctor knows full well those symptoms align potentially to long term HSV-1 infections. You cannot do a swab for eye herpes. The diagnosis involves inspection of the cornea. I am not sure why you feel the need to spread misinformation.

Of course you have tested negative for HSV more than three months post possible infection.

It is DANGEROUS to both yourself and others to assume your symptoms are herpes related when they may actually be serious.

Please reflect upon your need to attempt to erroneously validate other people’s symptoms in order to support a baseless interpretation of your own symptoms.

Would you like to call my eye doctor and tell them this?

The cornea is fine, but there is damage to the outside of my eye. Damage she has seen in other patients with herpes of the eye.

I am not making this stuff up.

I doubt this. If the doctor had ANY suspicion that you had herpes around the eye a swab would  have been taken. Gross negligence otherwise.

This is totally insulting to the intellect of our readers.

Mate, it’s time to leave the delusion behind before you do yourself or anyone else real harm.

What do you have to fear by believing you do not have herpes?

That’s why I’m seeing a specialist who can do that. Not every doctors office have swabs available, so maybe that’s the case here.

I’ve called urgent care clinics before to ask if they swab for HSV and many around here said no.

This is irrelevant, I notice you can’t face the REAL question here.

What do you have to fear by believing you do not have herpes?

For your sanity, you are overdue to go to a special, quiet place and ask the universe this question. Your answers are there.

What do you have to fear by admitting that people suffer from HSV in ways different than you think you understand?

Oh they do, but you don’t have HSV so your symptoms are attributable to other causes. 

Simplesness!!

      A few weeks ago I thought I felt a yeast infection coming on. It made sense because I had a throat infection ( which appeared to be strep but tested but negative — could this be related?) a few weeks prior and started but didn’t finish amoxicillin since the strep came back negative. So I was in a ton of pain, 3 days of Monistat and nothing, so I call my primary care to get something and she says “could it be herpes?” I said no way, there are no bumps, just discharge, and itching, pain around the clitoris, plus I’m just thinking of how long I’ve been with my BF. So she prescribed me something and I hope to get better. The next day I felt a small sore on my lip near my anus, and had my boyfriend check it out. He said it just looked like a little cut but my heart sank because I remembered the doctor suggested herpes. I scheduled an apt with my OBGYN. By this time I had multiple small sores and she told me I had herpes. She swabbed the sores around my clitoris that had been causing me so much pain, it felt like sandpaper and I just cried and cried and wanted to die. I told her I had been with my boyfriend for 3 years, it didn’t make any sense. He never had visible cold sores anywhere. I was worried he cheated on me. She explained the shedding and suggested he likely passed it on during oral sex if he’s had cold sores in the past. My test came back positive for HSV1 a few days later. Its been almost a week since I’ve had any visible sores but I’m still in shock. I can’t enotionally process this still. My boyfriend acts like since it’s “only HSV1” I won’t have many OB’s and that I’m lucky. I’ve been having lots of nerve pain even after the sores have cleared up, I worry it will bother me not only during OBs but all the time, just not as intensely. But I can’t help but still be angry that he gave this to me, and never even bothered to tell me he had cold sores in the past. I never imagined this happening to me because I thought I found my person forever and would never have to worry about catching an sti. I’m just so concerned since stress is a major trigger and I am going to medical school next year, so I will have many many years of stress ahead and I’m not quite sure I can balance the stress, and the pain and emotional toll of an OB. Can anyone with gHSV1 talk to me? I’m feeling pretty alone.

      Hi All,
      New here and was recently diagnosed with ghsv-1 six weeks ago. 
      Sort of coping, good days and bad days as expected and going through the motions as everyone does. 
      Did anyone experience health anxiety when they got the news? I'm barely sleeping knowing that my body can't fight this off and worrying that I will catch an additional or more serious illness in the future I'm getting the oddest sensations all over my body too and the anxiety makes it worse. 
      I caught this with low chances (with a condom and the guy was on suppressive meds) so I guess I'm feeling 'unlucky' in that sense. 
      If you guys have any thoughts, suggestions or experiences I'd be grateful to hear

      No the red bumps don’t suggest herpes on their own. Please obtain the test :)
    • Henson8675309
      Thank you for getting back to me! Even the tiny red dots/bumps very close to the clitoris look fine? And maybe my symptoms are cause by my anciety? I haven't gotten any type of herpes test done tbh I'm terrified to do so but I know it needs to be done 
    • Anon222
      Did you have a genital outbreak? Did you have any testing done (swab, igg blood test?) From my understanding self inoculation is very rare and very unlikely if you have had HSV-1 since childhood. I don’t think you transferred your oral HSV-1 infection to yourself genitally.

      I was in a long term relationship, got tested regularly. He got tested (possibly not for H).. we mostly wore condoms.. even after negative tests.  However,  it still happened. This doesn't discriminate.  My dr. agreed that it wasn't fair and that sometimes life is like spinning a wheel. I can't say if a one night stand is worse. Most of us got blindsided with our diagnosis

      Thank you for explaining to Cas9 the importance of diversity of opinion. If Cas9 had a technical issue with my language agreed he should have explained that kindly and politely   I am glad he admitted to getting angry and behaving inappropriately. I have since blocked  Cas9 as admin got back to me with the block function.  I personally do believe that synergy may be an effective cure for some. I also personally believe that the body has the ability to clear most chronic illnesses althou it does have limits. This is my opinion. Yes I am yet to test. As I have stated some people here have achieved a negative blood test although some have not and some have had a huge reduction of symptoms. Most people are smart enough to read all the threads as I have  I have dealt with synergy and I believe their testimonials to be the truth   my symptoms are reducing. And while I do not suggest downing a bottle of the amino acids one thing I can tell you is that their product does not do nothing  as I did almost down half a bottle There are a number of science papers showing some amino acids can treat herpes effectively one of them a recent paper saying glutamine was as effective or more effective than anti viral drugs.  I have experienced many anectotol things in my own life that give me confidence in alt med.  It is up to each person to evaluate their own health choices on their own personal probabilities and understanding of the state of science and reality. I well understand the difficulty of that in today's climate.  Im not a blow in and committed to sharing my results and experiences  I'll check in when I reach that point where I'm no longer experiencing symptoms     i know some some people have failed but I feel because of my various experiences I bring a bit more to the table for my own success anyone should evaluate their own situation with a chosen experienced health team that is well researched
