So It’s been 6 months now and I’m still having regular symptoms of tingling/itchy genitals and pinching groin pain, burning inner and backs of thighs, still no lesions. Although symptoms do seem to get 70-80% better throughout the week, they are never completely gone. It seems to get worse on Sunday and Monday after weekends when I’ve had alcoholic beverages.
I did visit a Urologist, who had me try Oxybutinen, but it also did not help.
At this point he said he thinks it could be Interstitial Cystitis. The only thing is that everything I’ve been tested for is negative other than HSV-2. I’m probably going to take another test just for verification.
I started seeing someone so I started taking 500mg of valacyclovir, thinking that maybe since symptoms aren’t as intense as when they first started back in November, it would alleviate the symptoms. Well, it seems as though they are still about the same after a week of taking the anti-viral medication.
Here are my questions:
Have you met anyone in a similar situation?
Did they find relief with any other type of medication besides Vacyclovir?
Have you heard of anyone having luck in suppressing symptoms with any Traditional Chinese Medicines?
Thank you for your time!
