Well 1st results came back positive tho?? I get tingling still.. 

The negative trumps the positive as a false positive! The tingling you describe is not necessarily a symptom of herpes and is more likely caused by other issues.

Wow!! OK.. So I don't have it!? 

I've seen a few specialists who tell me blood work cannot always be helpful for diagnosing HSV. Many people do test positive through blood, but some also don't test positive or they are given a false positive/negative.

Nobody on this board is a doctor, so please do not take anyone's diagnosis on here as proof of your health.

That is the correct interpretation of the test. Combined with the fact that you’ve never had an outbreak is convincing.

How did you get it swabbed?

Can you describe the feeling around your eyes?

@blurneworder  Hi, it's the left eye and it is tingling/numbish feeling around the eye-- not the eye-ball,  but instead, the skin by my eyebrows, the cheekbone....and it comes and goes.  I did go to the doctor.  He gave me valtrex and an ointment to put on the sore.  He also asked  if I was having any rough feelings in my eye ( I am not).  The meds and ointment helped some and a few days ago, I thought it was 80% gone and this morning, it is back in almost full force.  So, this is the longest oral sore I have had and the strongest.  It looks like I had lip injections...

I am thinking this is a new strain or my immune system is really struggling. I don't understand why it is so much worse.

Okay, so there was no swab of the eye, just the sore?

@blurneworderThere is no sore on or around my eye.  It is on my lip.  There was tingling and numbness near eye/cheek.  

I did want the Dr, to do a swab of my lip, but he said there was no need as the labs already showed I had established HSV1.  

My comments were in context to the different strains.  It is curious to me as to why this one is so much different than ones in the past.

      Hang on @tweetsoc this is just self-indulgent self-delusion. What is super tricky about HSV? You're only saying that because of the super trick situation you are in having cheated on your partner, stop deflecting, how does that help anyone least of all yourself? You do not know you are going through an issue with HSV; it is pretty much certain you are not.

      The first article is from 'The Sun' which is just a sensationalist rag. The second article deals with a correlation between HSV-2 and cardiovascular issues that may cause ED. Did you actually read it? NONE of the participants experienced ED at the time of infection and 0.5% self reported EDS after 12 months. How does that fit with your 9 days. Herpes infections do not cause orchitis, that's just a myth that is started and perpetuated by people on web forums. There is no medical evidence of this. It doesn't matter if you agree or disagree with me on HSV. There is no subjectivity in the facts that I present.

      None of this changes the fact that: you cheated on your partner and you can't cope with that; and you do NOT have genital HSV. Yes I do have to lecture about messing up because you are not dealing with it. You are creating a world of confusion from fake and/or obscure accounts of HSV in order to not deal with it. Whether you consider it nasty or not is exactly the point - this is the key thing that is wrong with you - when are you going to address - man up! Who has tested years later despite a negative WB?

      Thanks tweetsoc,  I haven't taken anything but ibuprofen. My doctor won't give me anything without the lab work. I get tested on the 17th and if negative again 4 weeks after that  I will look into prostatitis and definitely ask him about it. Best of luck to you. I hope you get some relief. Are your symptoms constant or do they come and go? It's strange how the brain works. Sometimes this drives me crazy and sometimes I have just got used to the feeling of hot sauce in my pants. good luck to you.
