      My prognosis is that the funding for herpes will be either cut down or completely stop for sometime. Curing herpes was never on the priority list of NIH. Though i pray my prognosis goes wrong.

      I believe from others studies lysine showed mixed effects. HoweverI would question those studies and designs if they are looking at the right factors. The causative factors of chronic infections are a little more complicated than lysine yes or no.  Traditional diets as one can see are naturally high lysine and it seems important in the case of viral infections whether if appears to help or not on the surface.  I posted it as it’s just such a well written and referenced article and explains a lot of orthomolecular science (HTMA science) and is based on the same science as Synergy (science is science published or unpublished!). I cannot tell you how many times I was told this year “It’s not science till it’s published”.  I thought @hk81 might enjoy it as a jumping point into the foray of hazy patchwork of unpublished and published science while applying their keen intellect.  I give this resource to most people as I think it’s an excellent article.

      I take 1000mg of L-lysine daily.  I heard it helped tremendously with OBs. And I never have OB’s. So. I believe it!  (And I’m on no suppressive drugs)

      I don't  believe this will affect the HSV research too much.

      What makes you think that you have HSV-2 in any or a specific location?

Joint pains / arthritis caused by herpes?

Recommended Posts

purp7e

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.

hi purp7e, I am recently having the same issue. I have found a high Rheumatoid Factor from the blood exams.

Rheumatoid Arthritis is an immune system disorder which is still not well understood. But it seems that it is caused by genetic predisposition and a triggering factor.

Strangely enough I've been getting joint pains too. I think the virus can be really random and creating different symptoms everyday.. I get rotations and everyday is slightly different. All started the day I got herpes and is affecting my life badly.
