I was recently diagnosed with HSV2 and have several really bad headaches where I kind of pass okut.

I had an MRI which came back ok but I feel mentally impaired somehow. It is hard to describe but I feel I must have some damage. Will this go away or is this permanent?

I see others positing about headaches too. Mine cause me to get very drowsy, lost ability to focus and feel not myself in a strange way.

 

I’ll add that my first OB was a long drawn out process that is still continuing but lesser now.

Ordinarily, HSV-2 will not cause headaches.

Let’s start with your diagnosis, how did this occur and what testing did you have done?

I see but it would seem the posts of others show it does happen.  The nature of these headaches are not like any I have felt before. I get kind of shaky or dizzy too.

I was diagnosed by blood and PCR.

Where on this site are there people who have passed out from ghsv2? I've never seen that anywhere. Can you point us to one of these people? I'm always open to being educated on the topic.

By the way, I've very impressed with your testing. Not many people get a blood test AND a PCR test. Which test did you do first?

Yes, headaches happen, i had continuous headaches after my first OB.

it used to reduce on taking valtrex. but used to comeback again.

after i ran out of all stuff, i tried some homeopathic medicine at a random doctor near by my place, it seems to cure it.

i guess our body is adapting to hsv at beginning is where i got headaches for like 4 months.

So you're IgG is now functioning well and hence there is no reason to at all suspect that the headaches are in any way related to HSV-2. Headaches may occur for some people as part of the 'toxic shock' that accompanies the immune system's reaction to a new virus.

However, the headaches may be a sign of something more serious and we are obliged to advise you to seek medical attention in this regard.

The strange headaches only started after the infection, not before. I can see others say the same even on this forum.

Any other symptoms besides headaches?

This is not sounding herpes related. Do you have the full details of the tests you had and the actual results?

I’m not here to debate my diagnosis. PCR HSV2

I am asking fellow HSV2 affected people if they too get headaches.

Yes you should be here to debate and question your diagnosis, how else will you play a role in determining what is wrong with you?

You do not seem very clear on the testing and results, are you sure these are the tests you have had? Do you have a printout of the results?

Your headaches are most probably not related in any way. You seem all over the shop and we are trying to being clarity to your situation. The actual results of the tests may be a critical piece in the puzzle but for some reason it's not coming through to you.

Please think about what you are trying to achieve and I am sure we can be more helpful.

@Jason77

What did you want to say or ask? You've already stated you have hsv2. You also said you have headaches and wanted to know if that could be due to your hsv2 infection. The answer was yes, you could get a headache from the infection but I think that's typically a side affect, not because hsv2 is in your brain. Is that what you're concerned about?

Yes, hsv headaches scared the hell out of me actually, i even went for mri to see whether i had meningitis, but everything was ok. 

In the initial days even i was feeling like passing out but never did. 

@Jason77 one more question, does your headache and genital pain symptoms occur simultaneously? 

For me it used to occur one after other.

Well hang on a minute, this is very misleading.

The topic, if indeed there is a topic, is HSV-2 and headaches.

The circumstances you present are: no real idea when you were infected (if at all); if you are infected then it is with HSV-1 most likely from a childhood infection; there is no evidence that you genital symptoms are hence related to herpes at all; and there is even less to suggest headaches caused by herpes.

Let's pull ourselves together here and focus on the realities and focus out of the abstract onto what makes us healthy.

Jason, or shall we just say @jay2255 because it's blatantly obvious it's you, the least you could have done was make up a new profile that didn't use the same name (Jason/Jay) followed by numbers, residing in Japan, and going on and on about symptoms that are extremely unlikely to be herpes related, and then get immediately defensive around your supposed diagnosis, if you really wanted to pull this off. Making up a new profile and asking the same questions isn't going to get you any closer to figuring out what's going on with you. This is really sad. I feel for you, but no one here can help you because you are just hellbent on believing you have herpes, and with that you are never going to have the time to figure out what's really going on with you.

You took the words right out of my mouth. I knew he was Jay even before he started this thread and almost said something yesterday. What he's doing is trying to show that Jason absolutely has hsv because he was positive via an igg and PCR test, and that Jason has headaches and dizziness. With that established, he was expecting us to believe that just maybe, Jay, was right all along since we have this Jason guy with the same symptoms who tested positive for hsv. Really sad JAY.

By doing what you attempted to do you're making some people who may have similar symptoms believe they have hsv. And the issue I have with that is that it's predicated on a lie. And the lie is that you tested positive for hsv. I have no problem with someone presenting the evidence and voicing their opinion on that evidence, even if it bothers some people. But I do have a problem when you present evidence that is not true, which in this case was saying you tested positive for hsv.

The bottom line Jay is you need to have confidence in what the igg test tells you. If you've taken that test 3 months after exposure, you should be quite confident in the results. But if you still have some uncertainty then retake the test at the 6 month period. At that point, if you still test negative then you should be virtually 100% convinced it is not hsv.

I agree with @Cas9 and @NY12345. You’re just scaring the hell out of people here with your issues, including me. Your posts from both of your profiles have made me paranoid that even if I get a negative Western Blot I won’t ever be convinced about my case. Your symptoms are part of the reason people in that Facebook group won’t reply to your posts.

So if my symptoms are “scary” I should not share them and just shut up? It seems so.

I’m not trying to pretend to be anyone else or play any games (I am in hell and not looking to play games) or else I would have picked a different name and used a vpn. 

So I guess Puni and others are not getting headaches from hsv also? But if so they should shut up too,? Why must things get played down?

Of course not everyone gets affected the same. Age, genetics, virus strain, loss, nervous system, immune system, etc....so many variables at play. We are all different.

But it is documented that you can get headaches from hsv.

Yes I had that too (passing out feeling several times). I had an MRI and it was clear.

The headaches are less frequent now but feels like burning on top of my head sometimes.

Please do not play the fool. You do not have herpes and it is time to move on with your life, good luck!

Play the fool? I simply cannot comprehend. Are you accusing me of making up this hell I am in 24-7?

look at BartSimspson, Puni, Hallow and some others they have some similar issues. Bart has it really bad, ask him.
