      Thank you

      Hey @Aubrey77 these symptoms are not something that oral HSV-1 can cause. In the end herpes would do what it does best and this is cause a sore somewhere on the lips . It might tingle a little as it forms, be inconvenient as it blisters and then crust as it heals and all look a little unsightly. But that’s herpes.    No reason to disbelieve your doctors thoughts on your issues.

      Any feed back is welcome. I get these small bumps inside my right cheek. They do not hurt or burst. They just come and go. I showed them to doctors and the say they come up with stress and foods. Problem is I have pain and muscle spasms down right arm and in legs. Are these all ongoing issues for getting virus? I am not sure was going on with my body anymore

      Update: met with PCP Friday to get a referral to neurologist. During the discussion he discussed my low white blood cell count from a test I took in February. My count is/was 3.61. I asked him if that could be contributing to slow development of antibodies. He didn’t really react to it much. With that said, I did take another IGG test Friday which came back negative. I’m at week 12 post suppressive therapy and week 14 total without taking AVs. I emailed Terri Warren to see if she feels I need to wait longer to take the western blot to allow my WBC to increase and/or allow antibodies to develop. I want to use the WB as the final step in my testing journey and I don’t want to have to question the results.    Anyone have any experience or knowledge of someone with low/lower WBC and how long it took them to seroconvert?

How to stay asymptomatic?

Recommended Posts

BobinColorado

Diagnosed by blood test for HSV 2 a few months ago.  Never had a outbreak.  At least one the I have noticed so I am asymptomatic.    Have no idea on long I have had it could be months or up to 15 to 20 years ago.  

So would very much like to stay outbreak free.  Any tips on how to achieve this?   I thought of going on anti virals to prevent a potential outbreak but dont want to spend the money or deal with potential side effects if I dont have any symptoms and dont need to.  So I guess it would come down to boosting or strengthing my immune system so I stay asymptomatic.  Any tips or ideas?

stay away from antivirals if you have no symptoms, just eat healthy, don't drink too much and get enough sleep and be stress free, additional supplements to help your immune system like lysine, vit D etc can't go a miss, hope you stay symptom free!

Thanks for the tips.  I do take Vitamin D, Fish oil and B12 vitamins.  Did that before I knew I had HSV 2 so do I need to stop?  Probaly need to moderate my drinking a bit more as well.  Ive seen Lysine being suggested on the internet.  Bad idea in your opinion?  Thanks

no i wouldn't stop if they are  making you feel good, but alcohol can be a big trigger but everyone is different, yes some people swear by lysine but hasn't helped with me sadly, i'm now going down the homeopath route as nothing is working for me unfortunately
