Just found out the bad news - depressed

Recommended Posts

soitgoes12

Hi all, 

So I've always had cold sores and I had always been careful when I get a cold sore not to let it near my genital area, but either my last partner had genital herpes or my cold sore traveled down when he went down on me, in any case, I have HSV 2 now. I actually was tested 3 months ago but I was too afraid to learn of the results, so I never called. Then I started dating, but wasn't having sex. I met someone, handsome, good job, creative, too good for me. Then I got drunk and accidentally hooked up, but this was before I found out the results. I don't have any symptoms but I'm stressed. I should've found out the results before it all, but I wasn't thinking. I pushed it out of my mind and pretended I was normal. But I'm not. I'm feel awful. I also feel like he'll reject me. 

Anyways.. I also hate myself for this. I just don't know how to pretend like I'm normal and just like everyone else now.

Hi @soitgoes12 sometimes tests are not quite interpreted correctly.

Which test was positive for HSV-2? What values?

Note that HSV-2 is a distinct virus from HSV-1. If you have HSV-2 then it comes from a partner and not your oral infection. Also note that it’s extremely difficult to infect another region with the same herpes type owing to your immune system.

Really? The doctor told me it was isolated test. But I don't have the results or anything. She just told me it was HSV-2. But I've never been tested for HSV-1, it was pretty obvious by the cold sore on my lip what it was. I'm agonizing on how to even talk about this. It feels like a horrible nightmare.

My point is though, that it may be little more than a nightmare that you'll awake from.

If you've never had an outbreak of lesions on your genitals, then the benefit of the doubt goes with not having genital herpes.

I suggest you talk to your doctor and say "please, as a sexual responsible adult, I would like a printout of my tests in order to have an informed discussion with future partners".

With those test results we can really delve into your true status and offer some pointers.

      Your symptoms and photos match exactly what I've been dealing with on and off since October 2018 after I had a a really bad flu that brought about tingling on my lips. It felt like a cold sore was going to develop, but a bunch of tiny white bumps showed up that doctors have yet to fully explain what it is. I also have a constant feeling of a dry, chapped upper lip. A few weeks later the white tongue showed up. I'm also currently dealing with a change in taste in my mouth. I eventually tested positive fro HSV1 months later, but I don't know where on my body it is. I also have discoloration on my the tip of my penis. One dentist told me I had bacteria covering my tongue, and another dentist said nothing looked suspicious. I also get the cut on my tongue.  Prepare yourself for a journey of doctors telling you that you look normal when, in fact, you do not.

      @CheekyMunkey there is absolutely no way you, me or anyone has any chance of diagnosing what issues inside the mouth might be. There are simply too many issues that create similar looking outcomes. All I can say is that issues inside the mouth are way, way less likely to be related to herpes compared to if you were having issues on the lips.

      Hi mate.  Thank you for responding. I do feel better but I think the oral might be the issue. I was looking at my tongue and it looks white. Well whiter than normal. Also about 3 days ago I had a really sharp pain in my tongue which lasted like seconds. Later in the day when I saw it it had like a line cut into it. Is it a lesion? I have no pain in my tongue at all, no fluid filled sores but I noticed that Its shape isn't right. Like a bits missing on the tip of the right hand side. I've added two pics. It looks whiter in the pics then it actually is but I noticed red dots all down near the tip. Could that be something? Herpes? Also, where the tongue goes out of shape there is nothing on that side. I did burn my mouth on some pizza on the day I felt that sharp pain so not sure if that's got something to do with it.  https://ibb.co/zhphnMD https://ibb.co/G0pPRLh Thanks in advance.

      Personally, I'm still wondering how likely is it China will cure HSV before the States does ?...
