Not really pissed

Recommended Posts

I went to the hospital 4 times this week with a sever sore throat, fever, could barely swallow. After the 4th time there they diagnosed me with hsv2.  I have been on on antivirals now for two days and I seem to be getting a little better.  Now I just feel crushed, emotionally drained, with a lot of questions.

It maybe sounds like you've been newly infected with HSV but remember its not the end of the world, even though it may feel like that..I've had HSV-2 for 6+years now and I know, its hard in the beginning, you just want to roll up in a ball and hide..well don't!! Don't let herpes control you, you control it!! Don't let that little shitty virus run your life!! One of the best things you can do is get on the internet and start reading everything you can about herpes, pick the veterans brains here, ask all the questions you can, the more you learn, the more it will help you!! Thats what I did and it helped me and I decided that I was gonna battle this virus with everything I have inside of me instead of hiding from it!!! Now I am in a better state of mind!!! If you ever need anything or have any questions you wanna ask me please feel free to ask me :)

sorry you acquired the virus, as @Cat_Glam18 indicated, it gets easier, and a large number of us have had it for a while and its really no big deal as time goes on. not to say its a walk in the park, but outside of days you have outbreaks, life is for the most part..... normal. feel free to ask anything, virus related or whatever you like.

I really appreciate your comments, I was feeling pretty alone there.  Now that I am feeling better physically I can process this emotionally, and knowing that this is a great place to find answers and some encouragement I am determined not to let this set me back.

      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 ?...
