Does anyone else get fever and muscle aches before each outbreak?

I get quite bad leg, butt, flank pain a few days before the outbreak. It hurts terribly to urinate as well. I can't say I get a fever or swollen glands - just a lot of pain / aches. Nothing seems to take it away - Tylenol etc doesn't touch it.

I'm used to it though (8yr). It sucks, but don't mind it too much - it's a clear indication that an outbreak is on the way.

It is possible that you are getting a virus and then the outbreak is as a result of the virus. that is normally not the other way around.   I got an outbreak and then a few days later I've ended up with the flu so hence I know my immune system is depleted

Before my last ob(ohsv1), I felt sick and slept the better part of 2 days.   Then the ob happened.  Not sure if it is a chicken/egg thing...

Yes. I have the same symptoms. Glutamine and bcaa helps.

Zink oksid helps. 2 mg/kg/day.

I know an outbreak is coming when I get a low-grade fever, around 98.8-99.1 usually. I also get nerve pain in my back. The only thing that helps is time really. I double up on Valtrex for a couple days and take Tylenol/ibuprofen to reduce the fever. It usually lasts about a week and I’m able to stop the outbreak before it occurs.
