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.

Also quite concerned about my high negative of 0.8 which is borderline.

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.

      Has anyone tried Longdanxiegan (LDXGFG) as a treatment? There seems to be scientific evidence of great results in animal trials. This is the link to the study https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S1028455916000322. It is a Traditional Chinese Medicine formula that now has won some scientific attention. I have previous experience using Traditional Chinese Medicine for improving symptoms of another rare diseases I suffer and, seeing this has been backed by some research, I am considering giving it a try. Thanks to all contributors to this forum for all the valuable information shared.

      Wow this is very sad that this man committed suicide from hsv. We've all been there with depressive states. I think the numbers are accurate...no more than 15% have hsv2. Every forum I join, its low numbers compared to other diseases.

      Me either. I got it from someone I truly cared about and in my experience it’s been hell because I was so hurt over the fact that he put my health at risk without even caring of the consequences because I was so good to him. He was in college starving so I would offer to buy him groceries, I would always be there when he was having a tough time and give him encouragement, and in the end he ignores me but still can go out and party. So maybe I was better off catching it from someone I didn’t care about. Maybe then i wouldn’t be as emotional over it. I feel like if I would’ve just got it from a one night stand I could be like oh yeah well shit happens, but getting it from someone I would’ve done anything for just ain’t fair because I was good to him and I know some people may not know they have it but he was sleeping with multiple women but acting like he wasn’t. If we’re having sex you should care about me enough to let me know what’s going on so I won’t sleep with you anymore if you’re wilding out that crazy but whatever.
