painful urethra

Recommended Posts

I do not have pain in my bladder. But I have a burning sensation on the opening of my urethra. When I pee it stings. It hurts to the touch. It's inflammed. Does anyone else have this? Could it be b/c of herpes?

Chances are that it is a urinary tract infection. It's worth a doctor visit. My HSV initial outbreak caused urinary problems, but there was no burning involved, so I tend to think it's more likey a UTI.

Hope you feel better soon

Hey seashell

I did experience burning from urinating when I had my initial ob and didn't have a urinary infection but was told by the doc at sexual health clinic that it was the urine passing over the sore that was causing the stinging sensation.

However, as Lifeislife has pointed out it is advisable you get it checked, just to rule out the possibility of it being a bladder infection.

All the best

      @srinivas thank you for the suggestion. Are you on antivirals? How long have you had HSV? How well do you feel now that you are taking the supplements?

      It doesnt really mean much yet. They still dont know if the herpes is taking advantage of a diseased brain or causing the disease. Furthermore, there is evidence that Alzheimer's might be caused by oral spirochete disease and even Lyme. Many of you could have oral Spirochetes but the Lyme and is less likely. https://globallymealliance.org/pathogen-cause-alzheimers-disease/ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC5008232/ https://newsblog.drexel.edu/2016/02/10/do-infections-cause-alzheimers-disease/   Of course it could be both! Maybe having hsv-1 and oral spirochetes quadruples the risk.  In my opinion the spirochete theory sounds more likely and its hard to dismiss neurosurgeons and caretakers getting Alzheimers from a disease that was previously thought to be non contagious. I'd worry more about Spirochetes.

      I wonder if people in the military are tested for hsv, because the general public isn’t. You have to specifically ask for it and many doctors don’t even see the point because it’s “so common”. It’s very possible he has it and has no symptoms or very mild random symptoms. Sorry to hear what you’re dealing with. It seems like women’s symptoms are worse than men’s.

      No that’s not the issue at all. The absolute vast majority of nerve pain is not caused by herpes. Hence it cannot be used to reverse engineer a diagnosis of herpes. That is exceptinally dangerous and we must do all we can encourage proper diagnosis.
