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.
