Fibromyalgia?

Recommended Posts

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.

      How long has this happened to you? What was swabbed? Results yet?

      Hi all  i have been to a doctor on 4 seperate occasions since I had unprotected sex with a woman who I later found out has herpes . They have said “it doesn’t look” like herpes . My penis always is red , inflamed anabolic has little red pimples on it.  I am constant uncomfort and pain in my gential areas, tingling , fatigue . None of the drs have done a blood test. I have researched DNA testing as they appear more accurate. I saw a dr this week and he took a swab. It’s always on my mind now because I have just started a relationship and don’t know if I should tell her. I’m scared she will run a mile . I haven’t told her because the dr said I was fine . I don’t know what do to do .  Any advice would be appreciated . I have a history with depression and this is adding to it

      @clarke53 why do you think you do not have an asymptomatic genital infection. The mouth sores don’t seem to be herpetic.  What protection do you use genitally?
