Well, I suppose that is kind of disappointing. I live in limbo, and it is painful. If I could put my occasional flare-ups down to something else, or fully trust the testing, I could move on.
I’ll probably take up the suggestion ordering the swabs of the PCR, although it will be even harder to move on with the thought of that in the background. But I think it makes sense.
I guess I feel a little disappointed in the WB, or at least the not having an idea of why some people might not perform on it for HSV1 in particular since it seems to test for some many different “strands.”
Given my testing history, what are the odds that I have the virus and it wasn’t detected by the tests?
