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

      Coming back to report that after vaccinations in May and July, today I have one vesicle. Called the doctor and will report back later. Slightly pessimistic at this point.

      I think I need to treat this as an ocd thought (that I've got herpes) and not check myself compulsively, not seek constant reassurance from doctors and the internet, just try and forget about it. Re disclosure, I would tell future partners that i could have hsv but I don't know, all the visual examinations and tests I've had have come back negative but there's still a possibility that i have herpes. Then they can decide whether to take the risk. I always assume someone is positive for everything unless there are tests to prove otherwise. I don't do casual relationships so always get a full sexual health screening with my new partner so we can both be safe. But they could have herpes and not know as it's not routinely checked for. It's a risk for all parties involved. I spoke to herpes.org.uk helpline and Marion told me that blood tests are routinely bringing up false positives/negatives and that having the virus doesn't predict when and where you're going to have an ob. I therefore wouldn't trust the result of the test and would be repeatedly getting tested, as I did when my hiv ocd was really bad. That was a hugely stressful and anxious time and I don't want to go through that again!! Especially for a virus that can't kill you!! So I think I'm going to have to live with the uncertainty of having herpes obs and avoid sexual contact whenever I feel sore down below if/when I'm in a relationship.  Being on this forum is just exacerbating my Ocd, so I think that I should stop posting as it's reassurance-seeking. Wishing you all the best and thank you all for your help, advice and support. Remember - it's just a virus that billions of people have and doesn't make us dirty or unworthy of love or a good life. Stay safe and well xx

      And I’ll help you up until the second coming. I think this is an unhealthy dose of imaginitis as far as herpes is concerned. Wouldn’t you agree?
    • WilsoInAus
      Yes man that’s correct. I mean we don’t really want more people in the delusional room with mirrors that see nothing, do we?
    • WilsoInAus
      There’s nothing visually or in what you describe that is suggestive of herpes. See your doctor if you have concerns, there’s plenty of things on the list of possibilities here.
