I am fine with it mentally but the physical pain wont let me move on.

Recommended Posts


I feel like I can handle the mental part. I can look at this scientifically and say ok yeah its just a little skin blemish from time to time and the area is covered by clothes anyways. in the grand scheme of illness this is nothing.. I can probably find love theres always a way. The issue is that its physically painful !!! I feel so many different pain cycles.. like tingly zaps, shooting pains.. and worst of all it can feel like razor cuts that someone has poured acid into. sitting down is painful. I would say my body is not handling the virus well even though I am healthy. In 4 months it will be my one year ghsv1 anniversary and I have to say I've had near constant pain. I cant focus the pain is so bad.. i even take antivirals TWICE a day. idk when my body will ever get a grasp I know I had a very severe initial infection that I let go untreated for a week not knowing wtf it was. I feel like I got a huge viral load and I'm afraid I'll have to wait longer for this to burn out a bit.

      That’s why I’m seeing a specialist who can do that. Not every doctors office have swabs available, so maybe that’s the case here. I’ve called urgent care clinics before to ask if they swab for HSV and many around here said no.

      I doubt this. If the doctor had ANY suspicion that you had herpes around the eye a swab would  have been taken. Gross negligence otherwise. This is totally insulting to the intellect of our readers. Mate, it’s time to leave the delusion behind before you do yourself or anyone else real harm. What do you have to fear by believing you do not have herpes?

      Would you like to call my eye doctor and tell them this? The cornea is fine, but there is damage to the outside of my eye. Damage she has seen in other patients with herpes of the eye. I am not making this stuff up.

      Do you have any photos? Sounds similar to me.

      Hang on that’s not the case. The doctor knows full well those symptoms align potentially to long term HSV-1 infections. You cannot do a swab for eye herpes. The diagnosis involves inspection of the cornea. I am not sure why you feel the need to spread misinformation. Of course you have tested negative for HSV more than three months post possible infection. It is DANGEROUS to both yourself and others to assume your symptoms are herpes related when they may actually be serious. Please reflect upon your need to attempt to erroneously validate other people’s symptoms in order to support a baseless interpretation of your own symptoms.
