Hello

I was diagnosed with hsv1 one year ago and since that time I never had any sex relationship and I don’t know if I will ever have one

No outbreaks but very tiny single pimple in my lips from time to time which doesn’t look like herpes

I know most of you have enlarged lymph glands at first and then go back to normal 

mine is still not normal and when I get stressed out it just get more bigger right under my jaw and ears 

The ones uder my jaw I can feel it all the time 

I also still have diarrhea 

doctors says that because you have a chronic stress after the first symptoms thinking it was HIV  and that the stress damaged my colon which causing the diarrhea untill now(I dont know about that). first symptoms which were enlarged glands, ferver , diarrhea , burning sensation in my forearms.

So I don't know maybe some of you had the same current symptoms lasts for one year ( enlarged lymph glands(always) , diarrhea(always) and burning sensation forearms(once in a week). Any Idea will be appreciated

Hey and welcome @Flyno

I am guessing you had a battery of tests and IgG HSV-1 was positive? 

What that almost certainly means is that you have a childhood infection of oral HSV-1 and have no living memory of cold sores. This scenario is pretty common.

Hey @WilsoInAus thanks fo the reply

no we don’t have a history of hsv1 or hsv2 in my family and by that I mean never based on tests

my Igg was positive 35.30 in the test I did year ago 

I got the infection after having sex for the first time in my life 

 

thanks again

That is most unlikely. Almost certainly you have an oral infection from childhood.

Do you experience outbreaks?

Im sorry but there is a history of cold sores in every family! There is less than a 10% chance that your parents haven’t got HSV between them. Essentially 0% that all your close family do not have HSV for at least one of them.

As 70% of people have HSV-1 you are actually MORE sexually compatible than not having HSV-1.

Tremendous news don’t you think?

@WilsoInAus I know what are you talking about but you have to put that in mind that statistics applies on USA and im not from USA

Im sure about what im talking we dont have hsv history and I think thats why im having enlarged lymph nodes for more than 1 year

I got check after the exposure about one week and it was negative and the doctor says come and check after 3 months because of the antibodies

Got checked again 3 months later and was positive

Most countries actually have higher incidence than the US for HSV-1!

This is all confirming what I have said, you have a childhood HSV-1 infection.

Get the pimple tested (PCR).

      Coming back to report that after vaccinations in May and July, today I have one vesicle. Called the doctor and will report back later. Slightly pessimistic at this point.

      I think I need to treat this as an ocd thought (that I've got herpes) and not check myself compulsively, not seek constant reassurance from doctors and the internet, just try and forget about it. Re disclosure, I would tell future partners that i could have hsv but I don't know, all the visual examinations and tests I've had have come back negative but there's still a possibility that i have herpes. Then they can decide whether to take the risk. I always assume someone is positive for everything unless there are tests to prove otherwise. I don't do casual relationships so always get a full sexual health screening with my new partner so we can both be safe. But they could have herpes and not know as it's not routinely checked for. It's a risk for all parties involved. I spoke to herpes.org.uk helpline and Marion told me that blood tests are routinely bringing up false positives/negatives and that having the virus doesn't predict when and where you're going to have an ob. I therefore wouldn't trust the result of the test and would be repeatedly getting tested, as I did when my hiv ocd was really bad. That was a hugely stressful and anxious time and I don't want to go through that again!! Especially for a virus that can't kill you!! So I think I'm going to have to live with the uncertainty of having herpes obs and avoid sexual contact whenever I feel sore down below if/when I'm in a relationship.  Being on this forum is just exacerbating my Ocd, so I think that I should stop posting as it's reassurance-seeking. Wishing you all the best and thank you all for your help, advice and support. Remember - it's just a virus that billions of people have and doesn't make us dirty or unworthy of love or a good life. Stay safe and well xx

      And I’ll help you up until the second coming. I think this is an unhealthy dose of imaginitis as far as herpes is concerned. Wouldn’t you agree?
    • WilsoInAus
      Yes man that’s correct. I mean we don’t really want more people in the delusional room with mirrors that see nothing, do we?
    • WilsoInAus
      There’s nothing visually or in what you describe that is suggestive of herpes. See your doctor if you have concerns, there’s plenty of things on the list of possibilities here.
