Nerve Pain

Recommended Posts

Miligan

Hello,

I was diagnosed with genital herpes a year ago, but before I even had a typical outbreak symptom I had pain all down the back of my leg. I thought I had pulled my muscle at the time and it had become inflamed. Now that I know I have herpes the leg pain seems to coencide with an outbreak. Has anyone else experienced this sort of burning leg pain? It feels like my nerves are hypersensitive.

Thanks

Hi Miligan,

Yes, that is a reported symptom of genital herpes and I have seen it posted on these forums before. It's called sciatic pain. OTC painkillers are usually used to alleviate it somewhat, if needed.

Nerve pain is the worse syndrome of my outbreaks. I get one tiny blister but the nerve pain feels like I've been kicked so hard on my butt cheek and like some one is pinching the hell out on my labia. it sucks. My precious honey still wants to be physical anyways and it is pretty painful at first but then during it goes away ( figure because of edorphines ) but after it is worse. Like I got into a fight with my whole groin area.

Long story short the nerve pain for me is the worse. Worries me alittle. Like how can you feel pain like this and it not do damage?

bty, I live on advil but wish I had something stronger during an ob. It sucks but I have had countless ob's since my first.... Weird thing is I have'nt kept track of when my first was. I think maybe july. But my ob's have been so different every time. I would say though mine are minor but frequent. I have come to terms with them. Nothing I can do about it. Just hope it's the first year thing.

Hey,

I got a BAD amount of pain in my leg when I had my first outbreak. The only time I get it now is if it's REALLY a Bad OB. My leg usually hurts a lot and is soar. I have never really taken anything for it so I can't recommend anything. I get nerve pain in other areas too. Well you know. The area down there. Sometimes it's very painful to where I almost limp when I walk. This is usually VERY hard to hide while at work and I try to just stay home when the OBS are really bad.

VVK,

you mentioned that the pain is called sciatic pain-is it involved with the sciatic nerve? I get pain in my legs too (the worst was during my first ob). I hope that the pain is just that-pain, and hopefully not damaging to the nerve!!

Yes, it is concerned with the sciatic nerve. It is probably from the herpes outbreak and not just nerve damage. I don't know whether herpes damages the sciatic nerve over time.

Ok, thanks for the reply! I'll see if I could find any information on the nerve damage part.

Hiya - I'm a 47 year old man - I've had GH for 26 years.

As the years have gone on the attacks have become fewer, with much longer intervals between them, and the lesions have become less and less severe.

I've often wondered however if there was a relation between the attacks and the INCREDIBLE nerve pain that comes along on occassions, but until today, I've always put it down to having a bad back. Today however my Osteopath checked my back and told me he only had to do minor corrections, and couldn't see it causing me the type of pain I'm suffering.

The nerves in my legs, buttocks and arms are SCREAMING though, and finally, having read this forum (and many others) the penny has dropped. I'll be off to the Dr in the morning.

My last attack three weeks ago was the first one in about a year, and so far as lesions were concerned was limited to two, which lasted 3 or 4 days. Fairly minor in the great scheme of things. The nerve pain however has become more and more excruciating over the past few weeks, and has got to the point of being debilitating.

Thanks to everyone who's contributed to the chain - it makes sense now.

David

It doesnt have to be herpes causing your nerve pain. I know it seems easy to blame in on that though. Go to a real doctor and get checked.

      In my case, the symptoms of keratitis appeared suddenly, while I was waiting for the bus on a bus stop. I had a feeling like something burst in my left eye. The eye immediately became red, very watery, painful and I couldn't look at the light. There was a hospital nearby, so in half an hour I had an appointment with an ophthalmologist who diagnosed keratitis and gave me a prescription for some eye drops. The instruction for the eye drops mentioned that this medicine was used against keratitis caused  the herpes virus. That's how I found out that my keratitis was a viral one. For the next 15 years I had relapses of the keratitis. I was lucky that the corneal clouding was far enough away from the pupils and didn't affect my vision. Since I started using the garlic solution 18 years ago, I've successfully been preventing any keratitis relapses which sometimes try to come back. In case of viral keratitis there's no discharge from the eyes. If you have some discharge, it may possibly mean that you have a bacterial infection which should be treated with antibiotics. The problem is in finding the right drug for your particular case, the particular antibiotics that can kill the infection in your eyes. Garlic has both anti-viral and antibacterial properties, so you can try this method, it won't do you any harm anyway. Make the garlic solution with water as described in my post above. Apply it to the closed eyelids every hour during the day and every 2 hours during the night. Two days will be enough to see if garlic has any affect in your case, whether it makes their condition any better. Try this and let me know how it goes, write to me at  vasilenko.igor@inbox.ru Kind regards, Igor Vasilenko

      Man, I think you need to meet people before you disclose to them. Having said that, I've disclosed via text and that worked for me with my ex girlfriend. We were together almost two years. Gotta get out there and take a few hits, to iron out your approach.

      Shit now I'm worried.   My partner had no symptoms, and never has and does not know status.   Has gone to be tested too.  Recently cleared of other std's but honestly we never discussed HSV.

      Oral was involved too....

      Good question- someone here maybe Wilso will be able to elaborate on this, but I do believe there needs to be a certain amount of copies detected before it can be infectious.
