quick question...

Recommended Posts

I am always tired. I have read that this could be a symptom of HSV (which I do have)... but I am on Valtrex, but still very very very tried. Now... I dont know if HSV causes that much of fatigue, so that is why I am curious if you guys experience this. Maybe it is just my bed, or sleeping conditions... how about you guys?

I was recently diagnosed with genital herpes and my doctor prescribed Valtrex. This medication at first made me extremely tired and dizzy. However, my body is adapting to this new medication and I am eating a healthier diet and getting adequate rest so I am not as tired anymore.

How long have you been on this medication?

Hello,

Yes hsv can cause fatigue if this is your first outbreak, you have not told us how long you had this. But have you considered other possibilities for the cause of you tiredness, like CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome)? Remember not everything that ails us is caused by herpes there could be other reasons. I Hope tis helped and i wish you well. Take care. Keep your head up.:p

The same thing happened to me the valtrex made me extremely fatigued and I have major headaches everyday. My doc told me to cut my 500mg in half and take 250mg which helped some but i still had mild headaches everyday. so I started taking it in the evening after the day is over but not when I went to sleep. B/C for some odd reason I got major anxiety when i took it when i went to bed and couldn't sleep. so i take it at like 8 and go to sleep at like 12 or 1. it's been working pretty good for me try taking it at night or taking half???

      I read an article about arganine vs lysine. The tests they get this info off were done in a test tube and not on humans. There was also another study done on mice with herpes. Mice die from herpes and when they gave the group of mice higher arganine than the 2nd group, it actually kept them alive longer than the group not given it. I was taking lysine until recently and I've noticed no difference and I eat a vegan diet which is higher in arganine. The only thing lysine seems to do is stop the itchy tingling feeling I get but then again that might be in my head like the placebo effect.

      When I had my first and second outbreak of genital hsv1, I had a weird thing happen with my throat.  The first time which was 2 days before the sores appeared, I woke up in the night unable to breath because my throat felt like it had closed up. The second time it happened it was the same thing but much milder.

      Maybe try black seed oil 1 t? Maybe a sauna or there is a group that will help you build an infared tent. Really great for acne and it will disappear while doing it.  Hormone inbalance?

      im surprise not more are trying to find the cure for it, with the amount of people that have it around the world it's the most profitable thing in medicine to cure.
