Tips for a newbie

Recommended Posts

Live.around

Hello everyone, 

I've been told by the doctor 5 days ago I have herpes, I was shocked for the first two days, crying in my room. I'm trying to change my mindset now, because I know the more stressed and anxious I become the longer it will take for the symptoms to go away. Any advice on what to do?

Also I haven't told anyone, I don't have a partner. I was trying to tell my brother earlier but I just couldn't say it. That's why I decided to join this forum. I noticed I'm starting to get more isolated, I don't want to talk to anyone, I'm ignoring people's calls. Should I tell someone?

Thank you

This sounds like a surprise. Are you able to share what herpes you have been diagnosed with?

Sorry to hear of your receiving such a diagnosis but trust you have found a great group, which I am new to myself. I have sound solace here and understand how you feel because I continue to feel the same way. Hopefully, the possible cure trials will show promising results, none of us will have to worry about this again, and this forum will continue to be here as a community to share because there is nothing like having people who understand what you are dealing with. But until then know that you will have all of this forum's support and compassion.

Thank you, how are you coping? I'm starting to feel stronger now and my symptoms are almost gone, I just feel a bit weak. I have a doctor appointment next week and then they will tell me what kind of hsv I've got. I don't really understand the difference between them. Hope you are feeling better.

      Hey hi202020, the Varivax vaccine definitely removed the neuralgia for me, at least so far (fingers crossed). My signs of HSV1 infection after the blood test came back positive in December (with a high IGG of over 55) were: horrible flu symptoms initially (in February) with swollen lymph nodes, followed by almost non-stop, super painful genital neuralgia, and one oral outbreak in March. However, the neuralgia has completely disappeared since the end of April (about a month or so). I had the first vaccine on April 10 and the booster shot on May 19, so about a week ago.

      Hey Mackie I have the same neuralgia that you do, did you find anything that helped you? Did you try any vaccines? I’m feeling desperate as I’ve had non stop neuralgia/pain for 4+ months after contracting GHSV-1.

      Got my igG results after 13 months and it is negative I think I need to put this behind and may be rhink do some shitty infection that is causing this itching in genitals and on face. Just an FYI my Western blot at 7 months post exposure is negative.

      Exactly. Plus some people don't seroconvert ever or for a long time, so it's even larger than that.  Also, it takes longer for hsv. To show up on wb than on a commercial igg test.

      Even Terri says that sensitivity of WB for hsv1 is 95-96%. So somebody has to be in this 4-5%...
