Herpes and Constipation

Recommended Posts

Mountainsplease

I have noticed that I now have chronic constipation after my primary outbreak. Scientists have found a link to it. Has anyone else had this issue? Treatments?

Evaluate

Have you tried any standard treatments from a pharmacy? Soluble fibre would be a good start.

eat fatty meats .  with its grease ,, even makes meat go through .. chewing tobacco in desperation works better coffee. one chew of kodiak or grizzly .  but many things for constiption.  fiber .  have more veggies on the plate and fruit . prunes .  water with your food soften up .  tiny swig of castor oil a week and spams the colon . haha.

I have a semi constipation since a few years that im beginning to suspect is herpes related

 

for the most part my bowel movements are normal but my sphincter just feels tigheter, it is hard to explain but it makes it hard to push out poo if my dump is going to be small

 

I suspect there is a neurlogical basis to thsi but thankfully it isnt too severe

A year and a half i have constipation. I switch  high dose of vitamine C and chia seeds each month. If you stay on chia seeds after a month it doesnt work anymore.

hi yes i have the same issue. my first outbreak was dec.6 but it took 14 doctors to finally link my urinary retention, constipation, and sacrum pain to herpes. ive been going for colonics every 10 days which isnt sustainable because theyre uncomfortable, exensive, etc but normal laxatives don't work any more. going to see an infectious disease specialist this week who specializes in Elsbergs Disease to find out if this is in fact chronic or still just an adverse reaction to the initial herpes outbreak

      I have had an infection of HSV1 at the end of 2016, diagnosed through an urethral swab. After that, I have had a cascade of symptoms increasing year after year, which I have not been able to diagnose correctly. I am still struggling with the diagnosis and it would be interesting to compare opinions. Symptoms: - Constant irritation on the glans, rash. Small red wounds inside of the urethra. This is what I have associated with my typical symptom of herpes - In the last year: constant conjunctivitis. A bad pink eye lasting for a few days, once in the left eye, the next week in the right eye, and so on - Since a few months: red dots appearing on my fingers and then disappearing after a few hours. Occasionally turning into blisters. Once 2 swollen painful fingers   A doctor made some blood exams and he didn't bother to comment them before throwing me out of his door, saying "you are negative to herpes. you have an obsession and you need a psychologist" - IgM: < 0.9, IgG: > 30 I understand that this means an exstablished infection and I could not expect it to be different. I have no idea what it means the fact that my IgG is so high. I have read that IgM negative in some cases means that there is no recurrence / active or acute infection, but not always. - RF IgA (normal range 0 - 14): 62. I have read that this is an index of an established Rheumatoid Arthritis. This could probably correlate to the symptoms on my fingers. What I do not know is: can it be generated as a consequence of a herpes infection, as an autoimmune disease? Is this the possible reason why some people describe of symptoms getting worst after some years, or having nerve pain?
