Pins and Needles and Itching allover

Recommended Posts

chloe808

Does anyone have pins and needles and itching all over the body when you are getting an ob? My back also feels really sore and pains are shooting down my legs, but I have been having back spasms for years now that weren't associated with herpes although now I think they might be setting each other off.

Hi Chloe808,

Sorry for not responding sooner! I just saw your post.

When I was first diagnosed (with my first outbreak) I felt itchy all over too. I can't say if it was psychological or real...honestly, I just felt itchy (like crazy) all over.

As for the pain shooting down your leg, I didn't have that symptom, But I know the virus can affect your sciatic nerve which could cause shooting pain down your leg. Sciatic nerve pain can run from your buttock, down the leg, and around your ankle. The guy who gave me this virus (without prior disclosure) had terrible sciatic pain. I took him to the doctor for it a few times, and the doctors never mentioned it being a part of HSV. The fact that he didn't tell me he had hsv makes me wonder if he had told the doctor either? But I have since read a number of posts here where people suffer with that symptom.

I think once you get your outbreaks under control you won't have such severe symptoms.

You are always welcome to PM me if you are feeling like you want to talk about something and it's not happening as soon as you'd like here on a thread ;)

thanks, shayna. I really appreciate it. Now that I think about it, I have been having sciatic type pain for a while now and perhaps its always been part of hsv and never diagnosed. I'm going to have to sit with my dr. and figure all this stuff out.

I too had a "pins and needles" feeling in my legs and shooting pains in my ankles, but only during my first OB. My doctor denied that it was from the herpes, refusing to give me medication for it! Thankfully, that all went away after a few weeks. I still occasionally twitch (mostly my legs) when I'm in bed at night. It's almost as if I have "restless leg syndrome" as a result of the herpes.

I get pins and needles, they last for weeks. I worry that it is spreading other locations

      Any views on this update on the trivalent vaccine candidate? Appears to show some promise including some effect therapeutically though not sure how much. www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/m/pubmed/30551986

      I was exposed as condom broke and after feeling funny I got us tested and she sure had hsv2 antibodies was like 15.5. I never got flu like symptoms. Just this mild burning sensation

      Thanks and yes I've been careful with towels and I take precaution as if I do have it. The thing is I don't have half the symptoms and maybe hsv1 is helping
