2 months in.. why am I experiencing these

Recommended Posts

Misterx

Hi guys I have been diagnosed with hsv2 two months ago and been through terrible first ob followed 1 week later by very bad flu symptoms sore throat and nausea with stomach upset. 

This became a lot better last 2 to 3 weeks and I'm starting to feel.. less abnormal. 

I have been experiencing last few weeks rash or pimple like bump on my neck few on my back and a few similar looking likes in my thigh close to groin area.. the one on my neck is slightly burning sensation and itchy..

I have also been getting mild nausea every morning (which used to be quite severe) sometimes diarrhea, sore lower back (or stiff) and fatigue... oh and also have uncomfortable testicular sensation around the left area and itch around the area between the buttock and genital area when sitting or lying down.. have only had 2 total outbreaks since diagnosis/exposure. One on penis head and one around the buttock (didn't check but had pain when passing and it was not due to hemorrhoid).

Has anyone experienced these symptoms? I have tested 3 times for all STDs including HIV 5 to 6 weeks since exposure and all came back negative except for the apparent hsv2 pcr testing.. which also gave me depression..

Any ideas would be appreciated...

The skin issues with your neck and back are not related to herpes, so you can be confident you have other things going on for you right now.

Starting off, was it a swab test that you had that came back positive? What was the exposure that you had? [Must have been an Australian!]

It's so strange.. I've started getting all these symptoms after I got hsv2. I had the swab test and the exposure was unprotected oral sex someone from Asia (thai or something). Getting some brown patches as well in my back. I'm scared and full of guilt regrets. My neck and stomach issue is not really normal too..

I think much of this is stress related. Most of what you describe is not due to herpes.

But let's start with what was the test you had that is leading you to think herpes?

So when I had first outbreak the pain of urination was so bad and blisters started coming up on the penis head, clusters of them. So I went to my doctor and I had pcr testing done which confirmed it and I started taking valaciclovir for a week and it all went away. 1 week later I started getting really sore throat and nausea possibly from stomach upset. Had to take 5 days off work as I felt so unwell and nauseous. It made me felt like i was on a boat constantly, felt fatigued but had no fever....

This last for about 2 to 3 weeks and on the third week it started getting better and 4 week in now I feel.. 90% better. Though the throat is still not like what it used to be been getting some rashes on neck , back and groin area (few in each spot), lower spinal pain, slightly uncomfortable testicle, itch buttock area and mild nauseous feeling when I wake up in the morning... I have been always a low stamina guy so I wonder if this virus made these features of mine worse.

It has been about 6 to 7 weeks since the exposure and I have been tested for all STDs strep and other possible diseases on 1st week, 5th and 6th week mark. Thankfully each time all came back negative including HIV. Doctor said its definitely not HIV as the testing nowadays are very sensitive..

When I had my sore throat and the rash he had a look and said they seem viral infection but not herpes. This made me wonder if caught from the girl something 4 weeks prior (long incubation time) or did I just catch a common virus infection when I was under stress and taking lots of antibiotics as I initially thought had chest infection.. the doctor did say the symptoms can last 4 to 6 weeks.. and that he had seen some patients like mine who had stomach upset sore throat and nauseous as well.. so we will see.. I've only had this for 3 to 4 weeks whether this is hsv related or not... the antivirals did not work for these symptoms and also I had a swab done on my throat and it came back negative for herpes..

The symptoms away from your groin area will not be related to herpes. Do not be worried about HIV which was essentially zero risk and doesn't cause symptoms for a decade or more!

I think you need to get a printout of the test that shows positive. This is to confirm that it was PCR and not culture.

I do have the printout showing positive for hsv2 which almost made me killed myself.. I'm only living because of my families.

Very unlucky from oral sex, can you repeat exact what the test says?

It said herpes simplex 2 detected.. yeah unlucky for sure but I deserve it... because I'm a trash.

No one is trash because of their HSV status. Being trash is based on your intent and actions.

There is a greater chance that you got this from someone you unprotected sex with in the week before the sores that were swabbed appeared. Is there anyone in this timeframe?

The exposure was the last... and exactly a week or so later the first ob happened..

      That's exactly right, you can return to your life and get the blood test as a sleep easy in 12 weeks time (from the last episode).

      Him and his ex have regular breakouts with all the traditional symptoms and I believe he was swabbed.  So I can return to life as it was before all of this drama ? I may still look into a blood test is I am confident it is accurate

      @Laurenhelena how is this guy sure he has herpes? All sounding a bit odd to me. Yes it is very unlikely you will develop lesions now. Rubbing skin to skin is required for any feasible transmission chance. The odds of transmission with unprotected vaginal sex are of the order of 0.08% per epsiode. Halve this if a condom is worn. Compare that to chamydia that has about a 33% chance of transmission with unprotected sex; now that's contagious!

      I just feel that it’s known as such a contagious STD - I’ve been lying to my family cause when I tried to talk about it they became very anxious and begged me to tell them I hadn’t slept with him when I had - If someone told me that they slept with someone with genital herpes my mind would instantly think they had it.  So it’s unlikely then that I’m going to get symptoms now? I’m not going anything further with that guy but we have cuddled and kissed in bed with underwear on, is that ok?  Im quite sure he has hsv2 given that his ex gave it to him through a threesome  I’ve never had a cold sore
