I also have neck pain some days which started recently and swollen lymph node in neck. Groin pain on and off but only noticeable when idle. Lower back pain comes and goes and but most sensations have died down some even tho I still have the sensations daily. Even had stinging in my toe foot and nerve pain in anus a few times.
I plan to test igg at 12 weeks but if that’s negative I would do the western blot.
Would l-lysine affect western blot test?
Should I stop taking lysine and vitamins?
Also had oral sex and developed sore under tongue weeks after exposure but no sore throat.
If I have hsv2 oral OBs then wouldn’t I show hsv 2 OBs genitally?
Ive also had ear pain/stinging some days but no more than a week rn.
I had sex once with a different partner protected but unprotected orally and that’s when I had the yeast infection and bc the next day.
Lastly I’m very confident I have the virus bc I was exposed and he had an ob and I’ve had these symptoms only since being with him and they’ve been pretty consistent.
My mental health bas seriously deteriorated due to the anxiety and shame to the point of needing anti depressant and anti anxiety medication for weeks now. I was not sleeping enough and considering suicide a lot.
Is is safe to accept my status without a test confirmation? bc the constant maybe/maybe not mindset is killing me slowly
Would you agree that what I’m experiencing is directly related to being infected? If not then what symptoms should I consider herpes related and which should I consider a different issue?
I’ve never had many heath issues before this and the nerve pain in my back leg as and thighs are new.
I guess I’m in this limbo of waiting for a positive while telling myself I’m already infected bc I’ve basically self diagnosed by using your forum, Reddit, FB, and lack of info from OBGYN and PCP who don’t believe I was infected bc I have no lesions and the tests are negative. But I know it takes a while for antibodies to show.
