Who else with HSV1 suffers daily headaches/brain fog

Recommended Posts

Since having the typical flu-like symptoms last year, I've had on and off brain fog/confusion/headaches.

I now have daily headaches and brain fog.

Anybody else with HSV1 have this problem?

I've always had hsv1 and all I get is ringing in the ears. I'm curious if you've had another blood test to see if your number climbed up or are still low. Possibility that the bloodtest missed your hsv1 infection as they say it's not as good for hsv1 like it is better for hsv2. 11 months for a positive and low at that is concerning. I almost put it all behind me untill I read about how it took you 11 months. I'm waiting on the wb results now. I'm 8 months in. I tested alot and always caught my h1 and neg h2. 5 1/2 month wb was neg for 2..  I come to realize that people get false pos whrn they only test for h2 and have h1 established infection. I always tested for both so no cross reaction happens. Have u kissed anyone or have had a new girl after the one that exposed u at all. I'm just curious if u possibly got h1 after the exposure. No denying u as u only kno. H1 is easy to get from kissing sharing a drink ect.. What's the chances. I'm just curious for my mental state is all.

Sorry. I can't say much since I'm HSV-2
And I always thought that having HSV-1 is better than HSV-2 (stigma tends to be worse on HSV-2) since cold sore is very common. 🤔

We have been through this multiple times.

HSV will only cause brain fog in extraordinary circumstances.

See a doctor who will undertake a spinal tap if you have any conxnerns.

Based on reading personal accounts of people on these forums who have HSV and headaches, I think you are wrong.

We can’t help what you think, only point out the scientific evidence.

HSV does not cause brain fog unless in the brain.

We have been through the causes of the 99.99% of non herpes related brain fog.

Would you like me to repeat a full list here?

Yes!! See my post about struggling w HSV 1 for 2 yrs. I just signed up today and told my story. Brain fog, pain on r side of face, dizziness,  vertigo, numbness. Hsv1 lives in trigeminal nerve and can cause all these issues w flare ups. Good luck, and your not alone.

      I usually stick to 16-18 hour fasts daily. It helps me.

      To all the people estimating 2023 for human trials of what Dr Jerome is working on, we really have to see.  Depending on what is happening right now about that 90% delivery to the SCG and the 50% to TG.  As soon as it is considered an effective cure in mice it will move to a greater animal.  The time to determine results of the mice testing was at most around 45~ days per test grouping. It may be longer for greater animals but I doubt it would be much longer.  If the same level of efficacy is found in the greater animals it may progress to clinic much faster. It may even be granted access to certain people with rare cases of lethal herpes, anything is possible.

      Same... on everything. I hated when i saw that the CDC thought It wouldn’t change people’s behavior, therefore, no testing. Screw that. When I was tested before the last relationship I was in, they didn’t even tell me what was Not being tested for. I just assumed all the common or dangerous ones.  However, my ex used it to her advantage and actually used it as a weapon so we would be “stuck together” she would often say happily, and now she’s even denying she has it (accused me) and she wont get tested, leading me to believe this is a strategy of hers - saying she got tested, but keeping the HSV off the books. Psycho  Will be taking her to court for sexual assault soon as she aggressively pursued sex, forcing herself on me as she stripped, and resulting in a disgusting situation of me not interested and her looking back on it often saying, “ive never cum so much.”  I stopped dating for years trying to get life together, and this fuckingNot testing bullshit is beyond stupid considering all of the serious health complications from HSV1 and 2.

      Thanks @WilsoInAus   Day +43: Another inspection from the doctor and he is not seeing anything; also a dermatologist in the clinic takes a look. Doctor also is skeptical that cut on left butt check is anything to be concerned about. In the evening itchiness appears but its not too bad- i have noticed that perhaps the area is tender from the previous pain so any sort of touching sets off itchnyess. Speak with Doc and plan is to do a blood test around the 10 week mark. Im also down to 1g/day for Val and will be complete on Sunday. Day +44: itchyness continues but it comes and goes.

      Looks like the fundraiser just passed the $25k mark. At some point this money starts to become really meaningful (e.g., $50k may pay for one additional person to work in the lab etc). Also its a signal from the community that there is alot of interest in a cure via gene therapy. http://engage.fredhutch.org/site/TR?px=1709211&fr_id=1574&pg=personal
