Test Results @20 weeks

Recommended Posts

Test results at 20 weeks

>0.9 = positive

Hsv 1:  25.0 

Hsv 2: 0.8

So all the recunrring bump like lessions only experienced post exposure were mere coincidences? And then there are the other symptoms.

Nerve pain in extremities still persist and is getting quite debilitating. Neurologist has prescribed tramadol, Lyrica, renerve and ibuprofen.

Started the course yesterday. Hope it's going to improve my symptoms.

At 20 weeks @Sharknado if you had an active, recent HSV2 infection you'd be well over the 3.0 mark. Also there has been some data pointing to people of African and Asian descent naturally have higher values with Elisa based testing in the negative range so I would take that into account as well and try to not take it as a way to play the "BUT WHAT IF" game.

Hopefully the nerve pain medications will help your pain. The HSV1 value is pretty standard for someone who has a long term infection that tends to have OBs.

It’s negatIve for HSV-2. It may be that your HSV-1 is just lifting the needle on the HSV-2 result. It is also possible that the lab reports the results that way. Regardless you are clear if genital herpes.

@WilsoInAus the lab offered me some credit as a result of the initial combo test mistake. I took another hsv 2 Igg which registered a 0.6. This was 2 and a half weeks after the 0.8. 

The lab is based in Germany and uses a diasorin chemiluminescent immunoassay test. Can you tell me anything about this testing model? Possibly in relation to my high negative?

@WilsoInAus can you share your thoughts on the above?

Yes this is a very clear negative for HSV-2 mate. You are clear of genital herpes.

Couldn’t he have Genital HSV1?

No, testing confirmed an older HSV-1 infection that is almost certainly oral.

Genital HSV-1 would be extremely unlikely to cause the symptoms listed by the OP.

      When who gets a positive test? I have already tested positive (as you and I have discussed multiple times in other threads and I state here) and HIPA would prevent me for getting his results unless he willingly provides to me, but as I’ve also stated HE won’t get tested.  Ya can’t get blood from a stone. He has nothing that would even start to compensate for the pain and suffering, let alone the missed work because of the pain!

      @Balancelife when you get a positive test, sue him!

      Read what I wrote and start Googling.  Both the Einstein College of Medicine (William Jacobs and Betsy Herold)  and University of Pennsylvania/Trivalent (Harvey Friedman) seem to believe they are on the right track and have established relationships outside of their respective universities.  Yes, it’s early, but they are taking the bat and readying to swing at HSV.   Cross those fingers and stay positive!

      Where ever you are trolling, I’ll be right there.

      Fingers crossed!! Could you elaborate a bit on the research or maybe post a link to it? Definitely could be a little light in the dark 🙂
