Fibromyalgia?

Started feeling nerve pain today. Is this a herpes outbreak? It feels like heartburn in my chest and nerve pain in my arms and legs?

Possibly...Neuralgia in the lower extremities is quite common with HSV 2

Well no it is actually very much a minority, plus it is not a form of nerve damage.

That is the good news....more than likely the nerves are not damaged.....it’s just another expression of the herpes process....confirmed to me by an actual neurologist.

@Kurdt01 I also feel that HSV-2 causes nerve ‘sensations’ from mild to severe, but no one knows why or how in the case of HSV 1/2.

Even Halford had no idea why or how except to suggest a form of signal interference meaning pain signals are misfired to the brain. Again this has never been shown.

Interestingly, part of the immune system against HSV actually promotes healthy growth in nerves, greater density.

Should I see a neurologist for this?

Ansolutely you should if you are experiencing what you feel might be nerve pain.

Do you guys believe that the disease reacts on the  dependency of your immune system? Because I don't get any sores or skin problems but I feel nerve pain. Why the difference, are they different viruses you think.

Have you had a diagnosis regarding your pain? 

There is no particular reason to have on your radar that herpes may be related here, especially as you are not having outbreaks.

I am in search of a diagnosis to the nerve pain...if Dr's can figure out what it is and where its coming from I'll be a happy man. My Neurologist wants to do a MRI on my neck to see if I have a pinched nerve...next will be a nerve test, hopefully we find something and I can get treated.

The back is implicated in many instances of nerve pain, sounds a good place to start.

      It is already a hassle getting started with making it.  I end up with more questions than I can find answers for, but stumble on...  I am retired so feel like my job is (finally) taking care of myself.  I have had few health issues, generally healthy--except for the H bomb.  If i have to make liposomal 2x a week, i dont think it will be a big deal.  The big deal is getting the equipment and getting started i think.  I make kombucha, which is sort of like having a not-very-demanding pet.  I dont mind doing this kind of stuff.  But will probably keep liposomal capsules or packets on hand for times when its inconvenient to make it. I cant believe u r sucking down 6 g of AA at a time!  The most i drink with AA is 2 g at a time.  I am currently taking 4 g AA and 9 g liposomal C in caps/packets. The protocol evolves.  I am so thrilled to not have BO's that i dont care what i have to do. They ruined my life.  I am glad u r finally getting good results with your fight against H.  Have u tried drinking the AA thru a straw with the straw toward the back of your mouth to avoid teeth?  I would think baking soda and water swished around in your mouth after drinking the AA would neutralize any remaining acid.  My teeth have pretty strong enamel, so i dont worry about it (but dont do 6 g AA at a time).  If u r worried about acid erroding tooth enamel, why arent u worried about 6 g of AA at a time going down the soft tissues of your esophagus and onward?  Im not saying its wrong, just wondering.   
    • Not sure what I’ve got
      Additionally to the above and to answer you question more precisely, it had been 12 days (probably more) before I started to get itchy (I could swear the rash started as insect bites, each very distinct - I am in a hostel so there is a chance it was bedbugs). Before that it had been a week or two.  I also had been cycling intensely in 35 plus degree heat (temps were around 38 degrees today. And the spot where the rash showed up is the exacts spot where my upper thigh rubs the seat. Finally, my clothes were washed by a laundry service, and the T-shirt I was wearing that was washed in the same load had been irritating my skin.

      @Sabayou have no need to be concerned with genital herpes. Your symptoms are not those of herpes.  If you have concerns, seek out the type specific HSV testing.
