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!!

Yes hsv causes flu like symptoms. Google "cold sores" "flu like symptoms" 

It is well documented.

Which flu like symptoms though is the issue. Can you please link to the symptoms from a credible source. Genital herpes does not mean you end up with a runny nose for example.

And it has been established that you do not have herpes to cause these symptoms.

Please see a doctor for a diagnosis of these symptoms and report back for the benefit of other readers. Might be best to do this on the appropriate website though, you seem to have stumbled onto a herpes website.

literally cold sores just make my whole mouth area numb and in pain, especially when i eat food or take a shower. it's super hard too when you are trying not to break open the scab but daily activities tend to make it worse. luckily, i don't get headaches or anything so bless your souls, just a lil runny nose and lots of pain.

 

i have found some natural remedies/OTCs ease the pain. ice for example always makes it feel more numb, but i have to wait until the scab isn't super delicate.

 

i made a parody to 7rings by ariana grande destigmatizing cold sores--

give it a chance:) and if you like it, repost with the hashtag #realslimsorechallenge with your own tips to shorten coldsores everywhere! they friggin suck!!!!! we gotta be here for eachother:)

Yes, I have all of the above. When I get an outbreak of cold sores on my lips, nose or inside my mouth it affects the trigeminal nerve (where the herpes virus lives in the ganglion nerve). I get facial pain, burning, weird eye pain and twitching,  dizziness,  vertigo and brain fog and neck pain. Your not alone and I'm glad I found this forum, to see that others have and are experiencing my similar experiences and I'm not alone. It can be very frustrating,  since the researchers and Drs arent familiar w everything and EA persons symptoms can be different.  Best of luck.

Bumping this thread.

I've been experimenting with food, and my headaches are absolutely triggered by sugar, grains, and the other trigger food people have mentioned on this forum.

It has been pretty well established by your doctors and your description that NONE of your symptoms are related to herpes.

This is a forum dealing with herpes, we are unable to help on the forums those non related symptoms.

An experienced member of these forums has offered to help you work toward a diagnosis.

Are there any outcomes from that process?

You are misinformed.

Search this forum for headaches and you will see pages of results of people with established infections who have headaches.

You have stop putting out false information.

It has been established by your doctors and your description that NONE of YOUR symptoms are related to herpes. Several experienced members with a range of oral and genital herpes types have also reviewed your descriptions and advised you that in their opinion YOUR symptoms are not caused by herpes.

This is a forum dealing with herpes, I'm sorry we are unable to help on the forums those non related symptoms.

An experienced member of these forums has offered to help you work toward a diagnosis. Are there any outcomes from that process? It will be important to share your story of diagnosis such that others who have concerns may have alternatives to investigate and assist in their journey to health.
