I have had some additional concerning symptoms set-in over the last 5-7 days (now at 9 weeks post exposure).
Over the course of a 5-7 days I started to feel intermittent lower back pain (both sides but at different times), intermittent tingling cool rush on my inner thighs, similar intermittent muscle soreness/pain in my butt (both sides but at different times) and even a bit in my calf. One night after several beers I felt a prickly feeling between by scrotum and anus. The next day I could see two small cuts there which could have been tiny ulcers. I have not shaved there or anything to cause that and have never had that or any of these symptoms. This is in addition to the burning genitals and previously stated symptoms.
My question is would you say that with these additional symptoms that I am starting to appear more likely to have the ‘H’?
Could Genital HSV1 present with these symptoms or are the more indicative of Genital HSV2?
I read that Tagamet (Cimetidine) can help boost the immune system to fight H. Do you have an opinion on this?
