It can be a symptom, but if you have back pain you should get it checked out. A simple MRI scan will give you a definitive diagnosis on whether you have structural problems with your back, irrespective of herpes.
I have a severely degraded L5 S1 disc and when i have a herpes outbreak, it exacerbates the pain in my lower back.
Miss Hope. You are right that I believe that trust should be built first. I am allowed to disagree with you on timing. I disclose my father's and sibling's suicide between 60 and 90 days. I think it is the right way. You are allowed to think it is wrong and tell me I am an idiot. All good. My ex learned to trust me. Then she disclosed. All good. No worries. I think she should disclose on her timeline. not mine. not yours. you said keeping secrets is not healthy. well.... I dont tell everybody about suicide. Not appropriate.

Rylee- I have people that were close to me who killed themselves. My father and my brother. My life is so much worse without them. The harm you would cause is never "undone". Each Thanksgiving. Each Christmas. New Years. It was 15 yrs ago. It is something that you will inflict on others. My wounds have healed but the scars of suicide never go away.
I dont know how you feel. I just know that the tsunami of suicide impacts generations. You are worth more than you know. I guarantee it.
Also Annelise- I think the way he handles it has many factors. I am a selfish bastard in general. I will NOT take a 1 in 1000 chance unless I am sure she is right for me. Period. If he knows all the stuff I know, it is still vital to make sure he knows you will be as safe as possible. diet. exercise. sleep. low stress. Herbal things like ACV and whatever. all of those things. plus you will monitor your body, etc....Those things make a difference. He still may run. I would not think of it as a terrible thing. Like I said earlier, all relationships end..
I have been having serious back pain since a little bit after I was diagnosed. I read that it is a symptom of hsv 2. I just wanted to confirm that because not everything you read on the Internet is true but also because if it's not a symptom then I probably need to get it checked out by a chiropractor. Also what are other symptoms.
I personally am going thru thus right now. Each day I fight and pray off suicidal thoughts. I'm just tired. Tired of having constant burning sensations although I take meds each day. Tired of worrying about transmitting to my kids or other loved ones. I no longer takes baths, inky showers and I still bleach the tub and toilet after each use. I feel like a leper. Im Tired of rejecting guys, due to my "secret". I've given up and accepted that I will never be married and will be alone, because I can never disclose this. All I want is my peace of mind and health back. This virus truly isolates people. No one to talk to, due to embarrassment or rejection. Somedays I feel its not worth the fight anymore.
@new person. No, I haven't taken anti-vitals. But let me also say that without constant lab testing, etc, no one knows why one person is infected while another isn't. Could be that we are safe. Or lucky. Or perhaps his immune properties are unique. Really it's so hard to say. Most importantly he accepts me as well as the risk as he absolutely believes I will eventually transmit it to him and he is okay with that.
Boy, I can tell you have a lot of compassion for people. It's okay. Thankfully, you aren't the only person who will be reading about my situation and who knows, there may be someone else out there with the same kind of symptoms that can relate. That's the only reason I got on here was to see if other people might be experiencing what I am. It really sounds like you are the fake one if you have this condition and you have no compassion for someone else who does.
I won't be responding to anything else you have to say because you're a jerk. It is evident and sad.
I thought joining this forum was going to help me and then I get insulted. It really hurts that you think this is fake. Why would anyone who didn't have this horrible diagnosis want to come on a forum for herpes and make up a fake profile?
I don't know what sciatica feels like. I only know what I've read it feels like and also the orthopedic doctor suggested that is what it was and also I have a brother who suffers with it and I have asked him his symptoms. I know it's not sciatica but I was trying to figure out what it is. So I was trying to describe kind of what it feels like.
I was so excited to see that someone was responding to what I said and then my heart gets broken when I read that you think I am faking.
I hope there are other people who read this that can shed some light on what I have said and can relate and maybe help me..
