Has any been diagnosed with herpes encephalitis? 

Mate you nor your partner has been diagnosed with herpes. Regardless if there are serious concerns please seek medical advice immediately.

People tend not to be able to be coherent or upright with encephalitis.

@Graph14 

I get extremely dizzy, have severe headaches, very sensitive to light, my vision comes & goes. My eye feels swollen on the inside & my vision feels distorted like looking in a crazy mirror in the affected eye. Pain behind the eye occasionally.

And what tests did you have looking into this? What does your doctor think it is?

Sorry for what you are experiencing @Ohsotired2. 😓😓

I’m sure your doctor knows what they are talking about. 

The worst effected often end up here and they are a small proportion of those infected. Really that’s all that needs to be said in such cases! 😘🥰😘

@Ohsotired2 a friend gave me a good article which I mentioned but didnt quote but after reading this will dig out in a few weeks about gut health and T cells that are produced there to help prevent encephalitis see if you can google it. I’m going to take a break from the forum a week or so but I will look for it to post.

@Just a human being thanks.
 

I don’t pay those with opinions any attention nor will I answer any questions by those who want to purport that herpes is a simple skin condition. 
 

I know what I have experienced as a result of this virus. It has impacted my health in so many ways. I feel alone. I wish I had oozing blisters instead of the symptoms that have taken over my life. I would trade everything I have to be have a “simple” skin condition instead of a debilitating infectious disease.

@Ohsotired2 do these symptoms come and go ? And do you get any relief with like Advil, acetaminophen, caffeine?

 

sorry to ask you all these questions maybe I should PM you

Good for you for ignoring the known troll Wilson!

This is entirely unacceptable @Ohsotired2. There is little doubt that herpes is not causing your symptoms. No doctor has diagnosed you with herpes encephalitis.

You have failed to understand or even care about is that @Graph14 tests negative and is having trouble accepting a deciphering what is reality when it comes to herpes.

And that's why your behaviour needs to be addressed. You may be experiencing terrible symptoms, but your inability to process this and get a diagnosis is no reason to suspect that herpes is the cause then drop into a herpes support group and prey on the vulnerable of mind.

We have had quite a number of these sorts of profiles over the past decade or more, many of them fake. All of them never having had herpes encephalitis.

For 80% of the population it’s just a stigmatising condition with no symptoms. For small subsets it can have devistating effects.

Mine is much better post treatment but I still have the virus. As mentioned previously I was not diet compliant due to high stress levels and I have complex medical issues as well as pretty serious immune deficiencies. I was just concerned I would develop resistance due too much consuming junk and too much high arginine. One thing also that is heaps better is my energy! It’s still not great but better! 🥰

If I look after myself it’s better so for me personally stress reduction and management is big this year! I will be putting firm boundaries on my no s. Lots of people shreeking and freaking about their HSV infections can be highly stressful  It really impacts on people psychologically and I have seen that so much! 

People’s situations like yours really impacted on me and it’s why I put big efforts in this year. I even copied and pasted some of the worst cases and sent them to some of the scientists at the Singaporean Virology Conference. I was so mad when I found out it was there but not ultimately accepted. I’m not sure if that had bearing on the 5CC being accepted at the Japan Conference.  (Both were waset)

I am hoping and suspect my condition as things settle will be mostly latent so I am deeply grateful for that. 

I really think integrative medicine can help those worst effected but finding someone worthwhile can be a challenge and the worst effected can def take time to heal. 

This person is a known Synergy scammer.

There is not once ounce of truth in any of the above statements.

      @CHT my comments regarding your race and socio-economic status are not rude, sounds like they were accurate. I just want you to be aware that there is unconscious bias in your comments based on your perspective. Yes I stand by my comments that the US healthcare system is shameful. If that loses integrity in your eyes, then that is where you sit relative to the healthcare system and my public health philosophies. There is nothing shameful about expressing ones philosophies. Have I been antagonistic in the way I have expressed these things. Yes I have and I apologise for that. I think overall I was pretty shocked that you believed that the majority of infections were asymptomatic for the receiver. Your personal experience was quite the opposite and I admit I was perplexed why you didn't share your personal experience with someone who really wanted to hear a story of a true genital infection.

      "talking up the chances of infection"  What? Wilson, you are now making up dialogue that never occurred.  He asked about testing and when symptoms might manifest.... I answered his questions and then asked why he felt he may be infected?  You need to go back and read over the actual messages.... never once did I "talk up the chance of infection."  You have done a poor job of reading between the lines of my messages back to "Dumbass."  I suggested he may want to meet with a doctor to discuss his situation with the goal of alleviating his concerns about infection particularly since the little bit of information he provided would likely indicate he had a low chance of infection in my opinion.... hearing it from a medical professional, especially with testing, would help confirm this and give him peace of mind.   Wilson, what really surprises me is your last paragraph.  I have read many of your posts on this website over the last couple of years and have always held your opinions in high regard.... always well informed and you never resort to petty insults and bullying even when challenged.  However, your snide speculations about my race and socio-economic status are rude, unnecessary and clearly antagonistic.  Further, your remarks about the healthcare system in the US were clearly hostile, not to mention showing a gross ignorance of how healthcare works here.  Your statements were shameful.... lost integrity.

      I'm sorry @CHT you did not give the full information. The chances are not high they will not have recognisable symptoms. And if they do not have recognisable symptoms, then what is the point of going to a doctor for a swab? It is your obligation to tell people their chances and they how arrive at the correct diagnosis through available tests. Are you aware of the psychological harm that you have probably caused by talking up the chance of infection. You didn't say that there would be 50% plus chance that the person did not have HSV-2 in the first place and that the episode was less than a 1 in 1,000 chance. What happened to those odds? What role do they play when you are interpreting symptoms or their absence? In life, you support someone by saying what they NEED to hear and not WHAT you know or want to say. Further, let me guess, white middle class? The bulk of the population cannot afford nor are granted access to health care in your country. Must be nice to be able to afford a clinical evaluation, but let's spare a though for those who can't afford that. All they can do is go with the odds and they are perfectly entitled to do that in their circumstances

      I know that it is not contagious, if that helps

      "Simply because people think they are asymptomatic doesn't mean they are. When they go to a doctor for education and consciously on the lookout, there is a very high probability if they are infected they will find something." Absolutely true, no argument on the study you reference.  I am also aware of the clinical studies that have demonstrated that those who self-reported as "asymptomatic" when evaluated by medical professionals are made aware that they they aren't actually asymptomatic.  However, going back to the original question at hand as to whether those who are infected demonstrate recognizable symptoms, the answer is still (as per CDC, WHO, and other reliable sources):"Most individuals infected with HSV are asymptomatic or have very mild symptoms that go unnoticed or are mistaken for another skin condition"   So, when someone comes to this site seeking advice and help when they suspect they are newly infected, we have an obligation to point out, as I did in this situation, that the chances are high that they may not have symptoms, or recognize any symptoms,  so, waiting to observe the classic symptoms (that they will no doubt look up online and find all sorts of photos showing "this is what a herpes outbreak looks like") will likely not detect those symptoms.... but, it does not mean they do not have the virus.  Obviously, most infected individuals won't have the benefit of weeks of clinical observation/testing to help them identify easily misidentified (or asymptomatic) symptoms..... these infected individuals will then move along thinking "I dodged the herpes bullet" and quite easily and unknowingly pass the virus on to others.  This occurs frequently when a person who does test positive confronts the person they believe gave them the "gift" and this gift-giver" vehemently denies having the virus since they have never had symptoms of herpes..... (which, again, is very likely as the CDC and WHO clearly point out).  Again, in the unlikely event this person were to enter into a clinical evaluation (as you referenced above), including testing/swabbing, they may find out otherwise.  This fact is one of the main reasons the virus continues to get passed along to others and the percentages of people becoming infected (particularly younger aged population) continues to increase.
