In addition to previous,here is current status, and consolidated questions.
– I am at 8.5 wk point. I took another IGG test this week, no results yet.
As a reminder, the very first symptom was penile pain (mild pain, more like discomfort) and redness, diagnosed as friction burn. Followed closely by urinary frequency which turned into an extreme urgency within the first week of exposure. Urgency was so bad I was peeing 4-7 times an hour, with the feeling of going to pee myself right after peeing, but not actually having urine. I never had any pain when urinating. That urgency resolved, but a pee frequency did persist for 3 or 4 weeks.
The most consistent symptoms overall since exposure have been 1) the rash i described in my butt crack/anus/buttock area (without any lesions), 2) tenderness on left side of shaft at glans & 3) the “neuropathy” type symptoms I described. This is what I described to the urologist “Discomfort persists which fluctuates between my butt area, penis around the tip/left shaft at glans and perineum area. I would describe the discomfort as a dull pain and skin dryness when it is in the perineum area, more like hot/rash feeling when it feels around the butt/anus and more like a pricking type sensation when it is on the penis. I never feel it in two spots at the same time. I also seem to notice this most when i’m sitting down” I call this all out, to give a full history and it seems consistent with other comments you’ve received in the past which you may have more context on.
1)Can I consider 8 wk IGG test conclusive?
2)If no, do I need to wait to wk 12?
2)Would HSV1 of ~2.50 more likely indicate false positive,recent infection,or >than 15 years?
3)Would HSV1 of 2.55 show up 7 days after exposure?
4)Do any of these symptoms make you think HSV1/2 is the likely cause?
5)anyway to confirm genital or oral HSV1 w/o lesions?
6)Has anyone successfully gotten answers to their “neuropathy” symptoms they believe are tied to HSV you can share?
