Tingling- I thought my OB was OVER

Recommended Posts

feelingbetrayed

So, I finished my valtrex a few days ago and my 1st OB has healed but I have had constant tingling down there. What is the deal? Is that normal? I really hope this does not mean I am getting ANOTHER outbreak!!! = (

It could mean that another ob is on the way and it could be your nerves reacting to the virus.

It is not uncommon when you're recently exposed and experiencing your first initial ob to have another ob back to back. Thankfully most of the time they are not as severe as the first but this is during the time when your immune system is still developing antibodies to control the virus.

You may find it helpful to monitor your diet or even keep a diary of what you are experiencing. This will come in handy in the future for you to identify if certain foods are triggers for you.

I recommend at least for a while that you try to avoid foods high in arginine such as baked goods with whole grains and nuts. Foods with higher levels of L-Lysine can help stall the virus's activity. These are often dairy foods. I personally find that corn is a major trigger for me and I must avoid it. Others have mentioned oatmeal triggering outbreaks but for each person it is very individual.

I've had this for many many years and the tingling doesn't necessarily mean that I am having an ob but it makes me sit up and take notice and pay attention to what my body is telling me.

I'm having the same thing. I was diagnosed a week ago yesterday and although the spots have cleared up I still feel all tingly and itchy. I thought it was because the open sores were healing, you know like when a scab heals it itches, but I'm not so sure now. I find that a freezer pack wrapped in a towel relieves it for a bit, especially when trying to sleep. :)

After my initial outbreak I had nerve stuff (tingling and some pain) going on for a couple of months. My tailbone (and area around it) would hurt when sitting in certain chairs or positions. I also noticed it would get really agitated if I were in a car with the heated seat on. Thankfully that finally healed.

      My comment was about THE BLOOD TEST!  You’re 95-100% accuracy for it?  Garbage.  Pure garbage.  You might as well have pulled that number out of your ass. Google search HIV accuracy... almost every medical site will tell you 4th generation HIV testing is as close to 99.9% percent you can possibly get after a certain period of elapsed time.  They will pretty much GUARANTEE you that you are indeed negative if you have a negative test. That defined certainty of accuracy WILL NOT AND CAN NOT be found for HSV blood tests.  You get vague descriptions of it’s accuracy from almost every site you visit.  NO CERTAINTIES.  Thousands of us on these forums KNOW the test isn’t accurate. When your score is between 1.1 and 3.5, this could be a false positive.  Certain sites list almost 1 in 2 tests can be false positives.  50 fucking percent!! And you want me to believe the test is 95-100% accurate? How come so many sites also seem to dance around the possibility of false negatives?   All that isn’t necessary in HIV testing.  Because if YOU DO get a low positive, the confirmatory HIV test checks for the actual VIRUS in your system.   And there are almost NO FALSE NEGATIVES.    NO HSV BLOOD TEST CAN DO THAT! Not even the Western Blot.  At the end of the day, it’s just a more detailed look at antibodies.  And many sites will tell you a “small” number of people may never develop. How small are we talking???? That can be any number.   Trash. And again, a large margin of people with herpes DO NOT GET LESIONS to be swabbed.  Google tells you that.  If majority of herpes infected have nothing to swab,  well that pretty much makes PCRs and cultures worthless for the most part doesn’t it?  If there is nothing to swab after a year, in your words, you are clear of herpes. BULLSHIT! So Wilso, just stop it.  You have never done scientific testing in a lab yourself on herpes. You are not a doctor.  You are constantly telling people false information.  Assuring them of promises you have no authority to make.  I’ve seen you do it time and time again.  Do you have regrets???????????  Im tired of your lies.

      @Talx2520 based on what you say, Im not sure the odds exceed 50/50 that you have genital herpes. If you take a random genital infection from vaginal sex then about 95% of the time it’s HSV-2. How long after the episode was the blood test?

      Thanks for the response! My first suspected outbreak was definitely painful. Started with what felt like a UTI, then noticed what looked like ulcers starting 1.5 days after unprotected sex. Never scabbed over, but I had a horrible itch that lasted 2  weeks (didn't feel like yeast). Given my symptoms, I've pretty sure its genital herpes, but I mean it could have been some allergy (I had extremely rough intercourse in the middle of the wilderness, sorry if that is tmi lol and maybe naive of me to think it was a weird plant). Both my mom, sister, and grandma get coldsores and I feel like i've totally shared drinks with them even during their outbreaks. Can't remember if I ever had one though. I am not totally sure how I should go about disclosing in general. Should I mention I had a full panel and hsv-1 came up positive and that I am not sure where it is? I really wish I had just gotten it swabbed, but couldn't afford it without insurance at the time. I was under the impression that if it was herpes, it would come back and I could get it swabbed, but I realize now that with HSV-1 that isnt always the case.

      @viralfrog given your symptoms do not react to any known antiviral doesn thatvsuggest these are not herpes lesion?  Lets apply Occam’s razor here.

      @Lulupazoola I have tried with a straw but it's difficult to create enough suction if the straw is deep enough in your throat  After drinking 6g from a shotglass I immediately drink a glass of water to dilute it down the throat.  Little update: blisters, redness and lethargy are back today. I'm still off the antivirals completely and my outbreaks are not any worse than usual for now. That's interesting, it seems I don't react at all to Acyclovir.
