She also explain that there could be something else going on that is causing these numbers. She agreed with my doctor that testing the outbreak would be best. She explained to me that we have proteins in our bloodstream that weigh like the herpes virus. Sometimes the test can pick them up which can contribute to a false positive.
I called my doctor with this information along with the information from your handbook. Honestly his whole demeanor changed. He said I educated him on something that he did not have any clue about. That he did not know the guideline for testing index has changed. That he will do better when diagnosing his patients in the future. He strongly suggest we do further testing to determine if I have the virus or if something could be going on. He definitely feeling it’s coming from a shingle outlet.
I’m going to end this by saying doctors really need to be update on changes within the testing system. Be more educated when it comes to properly diagnosing a patient. I know that this gives me hope that I’m not positive. After reading your handbook, it has truly helped me a lot. I’m going to do the Western Bolt. Something I also suggested to my doctor. And of course he had no clue.
Honestly I have no clue as to if and when I was exposed. I never cheated. I have been celibate for 5 years 2015-2020 and just started back having sexual relationship with my current Boyfriend of 2 years now. My Boyfriend says he never cheated (so he says).
The only symptoms I’ve experienced was shingles outbreak. I know my body very well. I would have known if anything was off.
Wouldn’t my IGG levels be much higher from 2021?
I would like to know your input on my story.
