Joint pains / arthritis caused by herpes?

Recommended Posts

Has anyone here developed arthritis after getting herpes? If not, do you have joint pains?

I remember when I got my initial herpes outbreak (hsv 2, gh) I had a swollen and really painful finger. This started at the same time I was getting herpes symtpoms. The finger joint was really bad and I remember asking the Doc if its was herpes related when I got my first outbreak examinated. He said no.

Anyway, since that day (15 months ago) I still have pain in my right hand finger joint. My right "fuck u" finger/middle finger is also showing symtpoms for issues with the finger joint. Now, a few weeks ago both fingers at my left hand started showing the same symtpoms. The same two fingers as my right..

Ive had MRI done as they were concerned for arthritis, but it was negative. Thats 5-6 months ago.
Im going to a specialist in a couple of weeks..

Arthritis has nothing to do with herpes. Heaps of people with herpes develop arthritis and heaps without also develop arthritis.

Arthritis is an immune system issue, independent of herpes.

But on what basis do you think herpes might actually be causing these whole of body issues? There is no biological reason why this would be the case. 

You also haven't got a swabbed genital lesion or a positive HSV-2 blood test. I think there will be many, many causes on the list of possibilities a person ought to investigate here.

Sometimes you don't have to go to Japan to find yourself, just look in the mirror.

      @MikeHerp what? That’s the article you put up in response? Thats fraudulent and we all demand an apology. You cannot go around saying that half of people with HIV have it because they have HSV? Jesus Lord man, you need to pull it together, I thought you actually had some evidence. But no you’ve just got paranoia. You simply like to use fear to spread your message. Also HSV is not the major cofactor in HIV infections. Chlamydia and Gonorrhea are much, much stronger cofactors than HSV, multiple times so. But why let these simple facts get in the way of a bit of propaganda! Maybe we should all direct our funds to eliminating chlamydia according to your logic?!? Also you have not corrected your posts around FHC and viral research. Please do it quickly before you destroy any credibility in the article if it hadn’t already.

      Yes it is, did you actually read the thread and their other posts? Regardless this is a real life test.  The OP is ready to commit suicide if he has herpes impacting his anus. Based on negative swabs, negative PCR tests and the fact that herpes may not even be able to cause theses symptoms - are you prepared to make the call that he has genital herpes and it is causing the symptoms? Or is there room to doubt? Time to man up.

      And he eventually realised that his HSV-1 was oral and the redness from another cause went away. It is doubtful that anyone’s redness in that article was due to herpes, even those who have actually tested positive. This is a great lesson for @DJwah as you can see people get obsessed over herpes except those who actually have it.  That leads to the Henry Ford saying. Whether you think you have herpes, or whether you think you don’t, you’re right!

      @DJwah, here is a forum where someone says they have redness in the glans and they are also HSV1 positive  https://patient.info/forums/discuss/herpes-2-igg-test-3-1-569144
