I realized I didn’t provide you with my IgG test scores, so here they are:
8 months ago, my IgG test results via an at-home test were 6.4 and my husband’s were 23.4.
Last week, my IgG test from my doctor’s lab was 4.5.
I also had some more questions that are a continuation of the last topic on the previous post, which was speculation of when I caught this and other effects it might have had on my body. I was treated for Tuberculosis, so it never became active and remained latent. However, within months after the second partner, in addition to those other symptoms I mentioned above, I developed really bad dandruff, and my husband has dandruff too. Now, years after those two relationships I am kicking myself for, these are my symptoms: low back, muscle, neck, spinal pain and stiffness. I’ve also been diagnosed with endometriosis and my husband with testicular cancer. Can HSV-2 cause any of these things?
Also, most of what I have read says that outbreaks occur less frequently over time. Is that still the case as we age or does it become more difficult to manage as we get older and our immune system becomes weaker? I am wondering if we are aging sooner than our peers as a result of HSV-2.
One last question about auto-inoculation. When our immunity becomes weaker, would it then be possible to spread it to another location on the body, like our hand? I’ve seen mixed answers.
I also have some questions about further research and testing. Do you think a cure is in the not so distant future and what are some organizations and researchers to follow?
This is the last of my questions, and I want you to know how very grateful I am for your work and all of the time you take to provide us with answers. This has been very hard to discuss with other doctors, and the services you provide are unlike no other. So I am sending you a huge thanks!
