Recommended Posts

bluebell87

okay i realise this may sound like a really stupid question but i’m going to ask it anyways, i have hsv2 and have been having contact obs... i’ve just noticed today that one of my fingers feels really sensitive, i’m only realising that i had this sensation with my last ob too so i’m wondering are they related.. it’s kind of like a sharp pin sensation when you rub it, is it possible that i have spread the virus to this part of my body ? / can you shed from your hand lolol... or is this just general nerve pain associated with my herpes....

Hi bluebell87, 

I think theoretically it could be, however HSV-2 usually keeps being down there because it is warm and humid :D So I am quite sure it is not HSV-2 what you are experiencing. 

Have you been sitting a lot? Problems with your back/neck? A sensitive, tingling feeling on hands/finger can also occur from back problems.

roja while highly unlikely can this is why i think its important to communicate risks to new members in an effective manner.

sorry to bother you.

pls reach out to us here. i am deeply concerned as you think this is a stupid question that NO medical professional told you of the rare complications and how to avoid them.

i wrote on your wall...and i can suggest a few members who have experienced this ..i do not know how to tag. i DO NOT WANT to scare you...i just want to make sure you are safe...and that their are no elderly/immune compromised people in your home as it can serious make things complicated with rare events.

hi bluebell

1) its clear to me as you think it is a stupid question NO ONE has communicated safety info to you. Not here NOR at teh doctor.

2) While its a RARE event...I think that this has happened to you as HIGHLY likely...that it throbs at the same time as the OB and that you have no awareness of precautions to avoid for rare events.

I dont want to scare you. But pls let us know you are ok. Please contain the area and PLS be careful with towels ESP hand towels.

      Sorry @Voyager2 it's such a garbage thing and you don't deserve that sort of treatment. I am hoping something comes out of the woodwork in the near future. I want that party in time square and I am sure @Sillybrain2 would be there too, We'd probably party all year, we've been waiting too long for this.

      There’s a lot of what looks like bro science here, can you point to any studies or views by experts that support this? Lets get a few facts on the table and see where that might lead us. Does HSV 1/2 generally cause nerve damage? Experts say no. Not even the likes of Terri Warren, Anna Wald and William Halford have isentifed this. Does an infection cause nerve and other complications at the time of primary or initial infection with HSV-2. Experts say yes. It is well researched. Plenty of examples explained as Elsberg syndrome for example point to particular lesions on the spinal column that cause issues. In nearly all cases healing occurs within a few months. Note that this is not to be confused with CMV/VZV caused Elsberg which is generally more serious and sometimes permanent. All herpes related issues will respond well to acyclovir. There are also related issues with the immune system that can be triggered by viral infections, most of which are also self limiting.

      Keep asking away @thebrightsidegirl You’ll get some good answers from experienced folk here, mostly! For a person with genital HSV-1, yes they can get genital HSV-2 although the chances appear to be somewhat reduced. No one knows by how much. People with both types identified in the one location are very rare indeed, although there’d be under-reporting. For your boyfriend, it sounds like some testing would be a good idea. Can he get a swab if the sores?

      Do you? I think people can read your story and decide for themselves, please pay that respect to people to understand your full story, don't our readers deserve that?   That's mice!??! On the basis of mice you pretend that what I write is wrong? I am relaying research into humans that is far more progressed than these papers on mice. Publish one paper that shows HSV-2 has caused nerve damage (I mean damage) to genital nerves. And given that there are 4 billion people with HSV-1, show us one documented case of nerve damage conclusively from HSV-1? The problem with mice models is that their immune system does not produce human immune response interferons and natural killer cells, not to mention the enhancements to neural density that accompanies the immune response.
