I'm losing more hair than usual and not on any suppressive meds.
Was wondering if anyone else experienced this hsv2 diagnosis or even hsv1 diagnoses
If so how did you solve the problem?
It's been three months since possible exposure. Last night a shooting pain inside my vagina woke me up. I feel the constant urge to urinate and have thigh and butt pain on and off. Today I kept having pain in one spot inside my labia and now it's all red and I see a tiny red spot. It doesnt hurt to touch but there is red and pain along the inside of my vagina. I go to the doctors tomorrow to get retested. I feel like no doctor wants to help me and don't really listen. It's so scary and frustrating.
I’m really confused about what is going on at the moment. I contracted HSV2 11 years ago was outbreak free for 7 years then started getting OBS but very mild around my period I was in a relationship so I went on suppression it will be two years on suppression in May 2019.
For I wound say the last year I have had near constant shooting pains down my legs/ feet sometimes in other areas of my body like hands Arms spine soemtimes and around my buttocks I soemtimes even feel it in random places like my head etc. I also get a very itchy and swollen labia minoria soemtimes and just a burning feeling down below. It feels like something is there but when I look and with a light I can see notning. This is usually worse at night I’ll wake up in the morning and it will be gone but through the day it will start again especially from friction of walking etc.
I was on acyclovir but I changed to vacyclovir to see if it made a difference the first week I thought it did but this sensations are now back again. I’ve upped my dose and still the symptoms remain I also take olive leaf and lysine. I have no visible sores at all and I’ve not had a single sore since starting suppression apart from a very mild one when I was very stressed and pregnant and ran out of tablets.
My doctor at the GUM clinic ( sexual health clinic in UK) thinks this is not herpes related she said if the sores have stopped then the meds are working and this could be another skin condition down below. But I have leg pains itching and burning which to me is all symptoms of HSV.
I have thought to myself herpes doesn’t behave like that and doesn’t come at night then go away in the morning then back at night but I don’t see what else this could be.
When I had blisters I never got nerve pain I had the usual tingling in vagina when you just know one is coming I don’t have this anymore since being on suppression.
I honestly would rather have mild OBS every few weeks that last a few days than these constant symptoms. I feel contagious 24 7 and I wound even risk having sex.
Does anyone know what this can be ? Is it Hsv ? If it’s stopped my blisters wouldn’t it stop symptoms all together ?
UK HERPES ASSOCIATION DOESN'T REPRESENT LESS THAN USUAL TRANSMISSION AND PROBABLY LESS THAN USUAL CASESBy Gems
I haven't check out all of this site; however I cannot see how reducing stigma over herpes infection should involve denial. It states on their website people shouldn't be scared for rare circumstances but fails to admit that this virus can be transmitted via objects in some circumstances.
PLEASE IF YOU HAVE A LESS THAN USUAL EXPERIENCE LET THESE PEOPLE KNOW THEY DO NOT REPRESENT YOU.
MOST PROFESSIONALS DOESN'T MEAN ALL.
I had some recent burning down on my outer labia, wasn’t sure if it was a vaginal infection or irritation from a new soap I was using. Then I used Monistat since I wasn’t sure and the whole lady area swelled as an allergic reaction from it. I went to visit the OB to verify and we tested for STIs anyways and no visible sores anywhere. All results came back negative. However HSV2 igg test came back at 1.07 equivocal. My doctor told me I was positive. I have no clue what to believe? The CDC says low values should be retested with the WB. I’ve also had no lesions, blisters or nothing. Anyone experience this? Any advice on what I should do? Thank you!
