more bad news for me

Recommended Posts


HI! I was diagnosed with Herpes about 4 years ago when I ended up in hospital with Viral Meningitis caused by an infected sore I didn't even know I had. To this day I am unsure who I caught it from. My GP put me on Valtrex but I am lucky not to have many outbreaks unless I am under a lot of stress. I have only been with a few guys since being diagnosed & have told all of them before sleeping with them. So here I was cruising along in life thinking I had a handle on everything when I had to see the doctor yesterday & I am told that I also now have Genital Warts! Christ almighty it was shock, not only do I have to live with Herpes now I have Warts on top of it! I had a total emotional breakdown in the carpark of the doctors surgery, I work away so I had no one to turn too & talk to about things & it brought up all the original emotions from when I was first diagnosed with Herpes. This is my first time in a forum like this & am glad it is here, reading other peoples stories helps me realise that I am not the only one dealing with this & there are people out there who understand what I am going through.

I'm so sorry you have to deal with this. I don't know much about genital warts but you have to remember that you are obviously a very strong person. You were able to deal with herpes and you will be able to deal with this as well. I don't know how much you know about genital warts but knowledge is power so do your research and you will be fine. My sister has hpv (which I think is genital warts) and she hasn't had any symptoms at all. Based on her experience it's definitely a manageable disease. I know you know that you have to go through the pain and devastation of this diagnosis but please remember that this too shall pass. You picked a really good place to vent because they're a lot of very knowledgeable people who who may be able to offer some advice. Keep your head up, just like you got through the pain of being diagnosed with herpes you'll get through this as well. Take care of yourself :)

      Medical knowledge in the 50s doubled every 50 years. But guess how fast the knowledge is doubling now? 1 year. Cures are coming. This is why there is a worldwide debate on healthcare. Some want to own your health others want the cures for free. You being desperate will trample on the next person to get it whereas someone else will hope the cure is free for all.  The fight isn't for a cure anymore it's for who owns the cure. The people or the elite. With medical knowledge doubling every year and soon every 6 months with the assistance of AI a cure will be ready by 2025.  Finally the west has competition who wants to be the world's leader; China. They want to cure diseases because they want rid of capitalism and religion. May the winner have it all.

      This isn't some 1940s crime detective novel mate! We don't have process of elimination, we have active diagnosis. But to hell with that. You do not have to prove anything to doctors. They're just a bunch of clowns with meaningless tests! You're the man, you make the decisions. Whether you think you have herpes, or whether you think you don't, you're right. Be a man, be confident, if you have HSV-2 then own up to it. Stop camping around at doctors offices. Stride right back to that girl in your loosest jocks with lots of stretch room for those swollen gonads. Slam open the bedroom door and announce you're here to show her what a night with real man feels like, minus Trojans!

      To answer your question, I have been living with pain and burning in my penis for a year now.  My symptoms started within 48 hours of attempted sex with someone who has HSV2. Doctors can’t figure it out.  I’m 90% certain HSV2 is the culprit.  All my issues started directly after the exposure.  Itching, tingling, constipation, nerve burning, testicle pain and back pain. And they all come and go. I only got a large bump in my pubic area days after the exposure.  A large amount of people with herpes don’t get typical looking lesions, so you can’t base it on that.   Hopefully you find your answer.  I pretty much have mine but have to prove it to my doctors by way of elimination.

      OMG if I had only known that 5 years ago... doctors have no clue of this.
