Does anyone have it on their throat?

Recommended Posts

Headshoulderskneesandtoes

I’m convinced I have it in my throat after a sexual oral exposure. My throat has been hurting so bad and it feels like I’m swallowing glass but it’s not even red nor are these ulcers unless it’s further than the eye can see. Tested negative for strep and the flu at the dr, he swabbed my throat for a hsv PCR and did blood work. Any experience with esophageal hsv?

I  was diagnosed with hsv2 about two weeks ago.  I was in the er 4 times over the course of a week due to some of the same symptoms but my throat looked pretty nasty.  I had several negative strep test along with a gammet of other test like gohnorea and clamidia. It wasn't until the last trip that I asked if they had swabbed for herpes, which obviously came back positive.  I know during this time I was feverish, nauseated, swollen glands, and a throat that hurt like no other.  I also contracted it by giving oral to a male.  I would ask for antivirals and something called magic mouthwash to numb your throat.  I lost 17 lbs in a week from not being able to swallow.  Keep drinking water to stay hydrated.  Good luck.

Do you have a picture of what your throat looked like? They swabbed mine today for hsv but I don’t have any lesions on my throat that anyone can see looking at it. I’m assuming they are further down past my tongue bc my throat has never been so painful I can’t imagine it looking so normal...

Hey. So. I have been having the sensation of swollowing razor blades on and off for around a year now. People look at me strange when I tell them I literally feel as though I’m swollowing glass. Also have swollen lymph nodes in my neck. I was referred to an ENT specialist who put a camera down my throat and found NOTHING he said nothing is there. Confusing right? fast forwards a few months I developed a sore on my vag. Went to the clinic and it came back pos for herpes. So NOW I’m sat here. Reading your thread.. all I can think is is this in my throat too? There’s no other reason my throat should feel as it does and the specialist said there was nothing there when he looked with a camera.  Not one sore nothing at all. I’m confused. Maybe I need to go see my GP again and find out. But if I had it oraly wouldn’t I have pAssed this to my children ? I kiss and cuddle them allll or the time and my children have never had a cold sore or anything of the sort. I’m now confused.com

I’ve been suffering body aches for quite a while now and I have specialists running all kinds of tests. They’ve been thinking it’s nerve damage or swollen muscles and joints. The worst pains I get are chest pains down my left side. I’ve been through multiple examinations and still found no reason for my pains. Do you think it’s herpes?

I have no idea. My dr just called today and said that all the swans and everything came back normal. He said I just have a cold type virus?? I guess I didn’t have any ulcers or anything to swab and so I’m just waiting on the blood work to come back.. I also have congestion today and ear pressure and a lot of post nasal drip. My throat still hurts but no ulcers

      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 🙂
